Who are we?

  • The tree


    We have a lot in common with our logo: the baobab tree.

    Singular:

    The baobab tree is most often associated with African savannahs. The shape and diameter of its trunk have always sparked imaginations and inspired many a nickname. Africans call it "the Magic Tree, "the Medicinal Tree," the "Tree of Life," and the “Upside-down Tree.”[…]

    Distinct:

    The baobab cannot be ignored or overlooked, nor can it be thought of as just an ordinary tree. Its trunk is often wider than it is tall and its branches look like roots. This tree is an important part of indigenous cultures and beliefs. Its peculiar and imposing shape have inspired many African fables, story tales and legends. […]

    Sustainable:

    There has been some speculation as to how long a baobab can live. Botanist Michel Andason estimates that a particularly robust baobab can live for up to 6,000 years. […]

    Multipurpose:

    The baobab is among the most precious species in Africa. Many different parts of the tree—the roots, trunk, bark, leaves, pulp and seeds—are used for therapeutic and nutritional purposes and in traditional African pharmacopoeia. […]

    From the very first meeting with a client, when we are discussing the job at hand… I am already visualizing the design and how it will be carried out, right up to the final result.
