Taboo

Taboo is a line of furniture made in Dakar, Senegal, from 75% recycled garbage bags and plastic bottles, designed and produced by Bibi Seck.

The furniture is manufactured by Transtech, a Senegalese maker of cisterns and septic tanks utilizing recycled plastic. Bibi was researching industrialized facilities to make local furniture in Senegal and kept coming up empty handed. He met Transtech owner Marie Jo Sanchez Girardon, a woman business owner in a men’s world, as he was about to give up. Together they decided to insert the Taboo Collection into the production line.
