Babacar Lo

Babacar Lo is from Senegal and has been living in the Detroit area for more than 20 years. 

He is specialized in furniture but what he enjoys the most is creating unique pieces, chairs, small tables and even benches. He likes to call them “his babies”. Every single one of them is different and is part of him.

His wood work is about repurposing and recycling found wood from Detroit and creating beautiful design pieces of furniture. From levels and old warehouse tables to canes, his pieces are composed of raw material that once was part of Detroit.
