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.
