Zezuru is the first collaboration (2017) between Inès Bressand and the Botswana based furniture brand Mabeo.
Comprised of a chair, a storage cabinet and a coffee table, the collection is the result of a collaborative process between Mabeo wood craftsmen and women and Zezuru Metal craftsmen in Botswana.
New addition to this series is a server, launched during Milan Design Week 2018.
Marrying wood with galvanized metal, each object is not only made from the two distinct materials, but from two very distinct craft techniques. Hand cut, hammered, shaped and folded, galvanized metal sheet components are inserted into or suspended on the wooden components of each piece. Pairing these reflective galvanized metal components — with their visible hammer marks — with smoothly handcrafted wood forms results in beautifully contrasted pieces.
