Furniture Maker - Studio Hamed Ouattara

Studio Hamed Ouattara

"Thanks to recycling, I am able to offer an innovative and local response to the waste produced from scarce resources in our region."

Studio Hamed Ouattara, located in the heart of Ouagadougou, the capital of Burkina Faso, is run by artist and designer Hamed Bransonka-Bra Ouattara. Hamed is committed to expanding local, creative reuse, especially of metal barrels, each thoroughly cleansed and sanitized before welding. Every detail of his pieces is carefully considered and made to measure, with even the hinges and tools required for each part being made in his workshop.

Studio Hamed Ouattara is located in Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso (West Africa).

"Art has a role to play in the development of Africa and my work reflects this conviction.”

Hamed handcrafts innovative furniture pieces out of discarded oil barrels, thoroughly sanitized before reuse.

These disused oil barrels, hammered and reworked by hand, offer a distinct aesthetic to his work. Using his craft, he transforms salvaged metal into functional, well-designed products.
