Peter Mabeo

Azure - - PERSON PLACE THING -

Through his epony­mous de­sign brand, man­u­fac­turer and dis­trib­u­tor Peter Mabeo has made it his mis­sion to bring “a uniquely African sen­si­bil­ity” to the global de­sign scene, em­ply­ing count­less crafts­peo­ple in the process. Hit re­leases have in­cluded Garth Roberts’ Seri se­ries of solid-wood ta­bles, stools and con­tain­ers, dis­tin­guished by in­tri­cate edg­ing hand-carved by ar­ti­sans in Botswana, Mabeo’s home coun­try. More re­cently, French de­signer Inès Bres­sand’s sleek Le­bone lamps, show­cased in Mi­lan this spring, fea­ture sheet-metal bod­ies and shades, their sur­faces hand-beaten in the man­ner of tra­di­tional forg­ers. mabe­o­fur­ni­ture.com
