While the table top looks like an eye, the whole table reminds me of an Iguana. Simplicity, craft and color meet in this piece. It would make a very elegant coffee table in the right place. Dimensions: 184 x 45 x 45cm
Gazwareen Driftwood Furniture is the precious child of Designer Maker Shahir Maged, producing hand crafted, aesthetic, sturdy and faithfully functional Green Furniture from Driftwood collected piece by piece form the shores of the Mediterranean Sea. Alexandrian born and raised, Shahir, grew up between Alexandria and Agami, in close relation to the Mediterranean, aspiring all its colors and influences and forging a tight bond with its energy. Drawn with a big love to the sea and wood, due to the influence of his father, Prof. Dr. Maged Mikhail, who loved the sea and carpentry, Shahir started collecting driftwood from the beach. He was inspired by the rustic beauty of this wood, worn out by the elements after travelling the seas and acquiring all its spirit. Coming from a family of doctors and professors he studied and trained to be an Orthopaedic surgeon and chose bone surgery specifically because of its resemblance to wood work. After practicing medicine for ten years as a successful doctor while doing wood work as a serious hobby, he decided to quit surgery and dedicate his time to his lifelong passion of working with wood. Today, he combines the elements of beauty, simplicity and the historical value of the driftwood to produce furniture and household items that are not only artistic but practical, very durable and filled with good energy as they are made with a lot of love, Mazag and attention to detail. In addition, making driftwood furniture is a form of recycling. Most of the wood he uses would have ended up as garbage or just burnt. Shahir has always been in love with nature and concerned with its well-being. Thus, bringing art and green thinking together to produce furniture that is useful for everyday life seems to be the ultimate goal for him.
