With great attention to process and to working by hand, our collaboration with Francesco Faccin has resulted in round platforms for pot plants made of folded metal: the scale of these pieces, alongside their simple forms, and the freehand manipulation of the sheet metal, creates an interesting range of objects that visibly reflect the tension between strict form and a basic, yet skilled hand technique.
Different heights and diameters compose these platforms, creating rhythmic and colorful vegetal islands for both indoor and outdoor.

The galvanized sheets are sourced from waste material from the construction industry. This is reflective of the constant interest at Mabeo in making simple and beautiful objects of design through contemporary, craft based activity from Africa: realised through careful use of sustainable materials, promotion of interdependent craft economies, and combined with collaborations with like-minded creative people from different parts of the world.
