"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 candlestick, with the maxim "Know Thyself" in an interwoven Arabic calligraphy, invites to introspection. More than an exhortation to the knowledge of oneself, it is a call to the awareness of its own limits, all in softness, with its flocked surface, velvet effect ... Let's brighten the inner light of our soul !
