Made in Congo
The product of a rapidly changing and newly revitalized continent, Kinshasa’s Sandrine Ébène de Zorzi (yes, "Ebony" is her real name…) is an up-and-coming designer who trained at the prestigious École Boulle in Paris. "I knew that the local exotic wood was of truly outstanding quality and that our local Congolese craftsmen were bursting with talent, so I was keen to come up with a contemporary project that would allow me to unite the two," she explains. It’s back on the designer’s home turf that her
Kiti Makasi ("strong chair" in Lingala) are hand-crafted. Inspired by some of the design world’s greats, such as Eames and Prouvé, each oiled, varnished, stained or
antiqued piece is totally unique.
