"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 console embraces our domestic universe and is at the same time aerial and practical with its back-lit glass shelf hidden behind a Moroccan proverb, all in wisdom "Every day at a time"
