A collaberation with Anders Olaf Nyberg
In Egypt, the streets are filled with these crates. In Arabic they are called ‘afas’. The crates are used for everything from storing bread and other merchandise, to sitting on and keeping chickens in. They are made from the stem of palm leaves and are held together by nothing, but the tension created by the unevenness of the material. We were intrigued by the simplicity of the construction and its many uses.
