Chiek Diallo’s furniture has gained critical and commercial acclaim worldwide. He hails from Bamako, Mali but is based in France where he studied to Architecture. He creates his furniture through the use of recycled materials such wrapping paper, magazines, metal e.t.c. His works are reminiscent of the new line of hand crafted furniture by Moroso. I really like his work especially the form of the chairs. Each piece of his furniture is unique as he sources and hand crafts all his furniture from conception to completion. Softdrink cans are the main materials he uses.
