plywood and red and white wood
Thionck Essyl, Senegal
Foundawtion is born of the Dawoffice architecture studio in Barcelona and the Senegalese town of Thionck Essyl. Their goal and aim is to build a school in this town, and it's already happening.
Some months ago Lluis, David and Ramon from Foundawtion asked us if AOO would be interested in designing the whole furniture for the school: chairs, desks, tables, stools, cabinets, shelves, blackboards, hangers, boxes and a really long motivating etc.
Since then we have been working on it and in February 2018 we made our first visit to Thionck Essyl: to see the under construction school, meet the carpenter, Lamine, who will make the furniture, make some first prototypes and understand better this amazing project. These images are just an overview of our first visit to this place.
