"Traces" collection, created by Kanza Ben Cherif, is a path through reinterpreted everyday objects, contemporary techniques and experimental procedures shape processed materials assembled with recycled parts. This project is based on the work of calligraphy and Arabic writing, giving form to Moroccan expressions and proverbs, through pieces mixing wood, marble, metal and a hint of humor.

Driven by the passion of celebrating both the beauty of Arabic calligraphy and preserving the Moroccan oral heritage through functional design objects, Kanza believes in transcending the limits of pure design and what is simply ornamental to what is aesthetically functional.

This set of 4 coffee cups with their saucer proposes a harmonious marriage between tradition and modernity! The Arabic letter that makes up the shimmering precious cove contrasts with the contemporary lines of each white cup. Placed in order together, the word "Bissaha" is formed, moroccan expression for "With good health"
