The Seri Series was designed by Garth Roberts for Mabeo in 2014. A further continuation of this collection, the Seri Stool (2017) is handcrafted in panga panga wood by artisans in Botswana and features hand carved dimples along the edges and the legs. Measuring 35 x 35 x 42.3 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.
