Sefefo Occasional/ Side Tables

Patricia Urquiola 2013

The Sefefo occasional tables express a balanced approach between contemporaneity and free hand wood carving. The name Sefefo (meaning whirlwind in Setswana), denotes the helix shape of the wood carving that brings to mind the shape of a whirlwind.

The strict form and profiles of the table, combined with the free hand carving on the base, applied using a small hand held electric tool by the craftsmen at Mabeo, bring together 2 opposite processes to create an iconic piece of furniture.

The tables are available in 2 different heights and diameters that allow for use either as coffee tables or as low cafe tables. Two tables can also be placed together as a nested set of occasional tables. The Sefefo is hand made using sustainable hardwoods by the craftsmen and women of Mabeo in Botswana.
