Mina Abouzahra (Enschede 1977), studied at the Wood and Furniture School in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. She has a passion for wood, textiles, copper and marble. A red thread in her life is the combination of different cultures. With the same attitude Mina was active in the world of food; she wrote recipes, developed food concepts, worked as a food stylist, organized pop-up restaurants and produced with Merijn Tol (Arabia) the cookbook Proef! Orange blossom, the new Moroccan cuisine. The designs of Abouzahra are surprising and colorful, and inspired by a continuous search for new combinations of materials, shapes and production methods. Mina Abouzahra often cooperates with other creatives, like cabinet makers, upholsterer, illustrators. She travels every few months to Morocco for inspiration and to search for old, rare and beautiful things she can import, both for her shop and for clients directly.
