In the Tsonga language (spoken by 1.300.000 people in the southern Limpopo province) means TO BE, while in Swati (spoken by a smaller comunity near the Swaziland border) means TO UNDERSTAND 

What: almost an office, now free from professional boundaries became just a box. But this is a special box, because if you put something in it, when you want to take it back you will get something different.

The input is the world, the process is multiple going from perception to creation, from experience to interpretation. What you get at the end nobody can tell, and that’s the best part of it.
