after working in africa for a few years, swedish designer peter thuvander and architect martin hedenström from studio muungano are bringing african colors and patterns to their designs and mixing them with the forms and functionalism of the german bauhaus period.

the furniture is based on a modular system composed of waxed ash, multi-coloured lacqueered tubar steel and upholstered with grey felt. the different components can be made into an easy-chair, sofa, table or a lamp.

‘baufrica’ was seen at the greenhouse talent show during stockholm furniture fair 2010.

the light is filtered through the ash-veneer to make it softer. the pattern only appears when you turn on the lamp.
