Throughout her distinguished career, textile designer Aissa Dione has worked to uphold Made in Senegal, by taking traditional know-how and adapting and modernising it to meet global standards. This philosophy extends to designing furniture and objects made in her Dakar workshop in partnership with local artisans. In early 2020 Aissa opened the doors to Weaving Art Objects (WAO), a concept store dedicated to retailing high-quality furniture and interior accessories that continue to showcase the best in local production techniques and creativity.
Aissa seeks out promising local designers and craftspeople nurturing their talents in her workshop. In doing she gives them a platform to develop their creativity and reach new audiences.
Located in Corniche West, in WAO you will find sofas, armchairs, and stools upholstered with Aissa’s textiles, alongside wooden tables featuring intricately carved surface patterns. WAO also offers an in-house design service to help you make the most of your spaces.
