Black ceramics are obtained through the oxidation of the iron present in the clay during firing. This process is carried out by sealing the kiln once the wood combustion is finished, retaining the smoke and letting it rest for about 15 days. It is an ancient technique, practically disappeared.
Starting from this firing process, a series of pieces were designed and finished with this technique. The Foscas collection arises from the selection of molds from a rotary press and extrusions of existing basic pieces, making use of the most industrial part of the ceramic process.
Kamanar
Year: 2018, for Foundawtion.
Foundawtion is a non-profit organization that carries out vernacular projects to address architectural needs in economically disadvantaged areas. CEM Kamanar, led by the Daw Office architecture studio, is the first project of this foundation: a school for more than 500 high school students in Thionck Essyl, a village in the Casamance area, south of Senegal.
This manual is a project in collaboration with Bendita Gloria for the foundation. More than the result of the work done, these pages contain everything that was necessary for the manufacture of the furniture collection designed for the CEM Kamanar school.
A collection that has sought the most optimal relationship between efficiency and comfort, prioritizing making things as easy as possible for each stage of the process: from design, material selection, construction, and/or maintenance.
Chaise S and L prototypes
The school in operation in 2020.
Throughout the design and manufacturing period of all the furniture, workshops and related projects were carried out to raise funds and promote the project.
A good example is L'Art de Construir, a workshop organized by Ester Rovira and in collaboration with Claudia Valsells. During a week and with a group of more than 20 children, more than 30 chairs from the collection were manufactured and painted.
