Mabeo is furniture and accessories brand from Botswana, Africa. The company was established in 1996 by Peter Mabeo and after 10 years of making bespoke furniture for commercial projects locally, Mabeo launched its products internationally in 2006. The company has engaged the design world consistently since then, collaborating with some of the best designers on significant projects and developing an interesting line of products. The aim of the brand is to make the work of African artisans available to the world in a considered way, through thoughtful collaboration with the best international designers. Good design, high quality, craftsmanship, use of sustainable materials, culture, people and community development are the main tenets of the brand.
Mabeo has been in collaboration with some of the most renowned international designers. The focus is to embody Mabeo’s ideals in the approach, the way of working and in the products made. This has resulted in a universal aesthetic language that communicates certain qualities – an essential simplicity of form, an idea of purity, the conscientious use and handling of natural materials, the dedication of the craftsmen and women, and the sensitivity of the collaborating designer with a reverence to the rich aesthetic heritage of Africa and its people.
