The Dira Stool was designed by Vincent Van Duysen for Mabeo in 2018. Inspired by traditional carving in Africa, the stool is handcrafted in panga panga wood by artisans in Botswana and features simple, grooved embellishments. Measuring 50 x 30 x 40 cm, this design is an open edition made to order.
Founded by Peter Mabeo in 2006, Mabeo is a design brand from Botswana that marries concept, function, craft, and humanity in the production of discreet design objects for everyday life. Often collaborating with independent designers like Patricia Urquiola, Claesson Koivisto Rune, Garth Roberts, and Luca Nichetto, the atelier mindfully integrates a uniquely African sensibility into handcrafted works that have an international appeal. Whether self-initiated or on commission, each Mabeo design celebrates the mark of the human hand through a humane and sustainable approach.
