Designers Ayse Birsel and Bibi Seck have designed the Taboo Collection of furniture that are made in Dakar, Senegal, from 75% recycled garbage bags and plastic bottles.

Thus, this a great opportunity to help the environment, and also assists Senegalese to not only be self-sufficient but also at the cutting edge of design.

Taboo stools and tables draw inspiration from the daily habits of Western Africans, who traditionally sit on stools or squat on the floor around low tables to eat from a communal tray laden with food and then spend hours conversing and drinking Attaya tea, a potent gun-powder black tea infused with mint leaves and quantities of sugar.

Taboo pieces come in a myriad of colors, corals, blues, greens, depending on the color of the recycled plastic content, lending the pieces a visual quality reminiscent of “careaux cassées,” the broken tile floors so popular in Dakar. Taboo pieces can be used indoors or outdoors.
