Selma Lazrak is a designer and architect from Morocco and based in Munich, Germany.
From object to architecture, the work of her studio focuses on the link between design, identity and territory.
The Sahara collection is inspired by a vocabulary of dunes, desertic landscapes and organic forms encountered during the childhood of the designer spent between Morocco and the Middle East.
ALCOBA is an interpretation of the nature founded in these lands with influences from Moroccan vernacular architecture. The aim was to capture the essence of a heritage and a land and combine them into a vocabulary of forms. The meaning of the word Alcoba in Arabic is the Alcove found in the Moroccan and Moorish architecture. Walnut, chosen for its colour and warmness is handcrafted by local artisans to create the purest angles and curves.
AMUD is inspired by the architecture of the columns founded in the city of Fez in Morocco. The chamfered edges of the pillars are inspired by the nature of the region and the layered heritage of all the civilizations that populated these lands, from the Romans to the Arab-Andalusians. The piece is a tribute to nature and crafts of Morocco.
