. PROTEA FURNITURE
Sophisticated and daringly playful reinterpretations of the unique colour combinations and shapes of the endemic blossoms of the Cape Floral Kingdom, Nicci Drzewicki's Protea furniture, lighting and home décor collections are a must-have for residential and alternative commercial interiors.
The stylised three-dimensional outline drawings created by the hand-bent steel rod and wire components give the pieces in the Protea collections a tactility and weight, much like the flora they reference. Natural materials, such as wooden elements, lend a sense of texture and warmth to the products.
All steel rod and wire components have been epoxy coated or electroplated and the Protea collections are available in eight colourways ranging from bold hues such as Glow, Aqua, Red and White, to classical finishes including Cream, Charcoal, Satin Nickel and Antique. The Protea furniture collection is produced by Netshomi Zam.

. HAPPY CAMPER FURNITURE
Moved by childhood camping experiences and a passion for bringing the Great Outdoors inside, Mireille van Reenen's Happy Camper luxury indoor furniture, home décor and accessory collections combine a sense of nostalgia and adventure with innovative contemporary design. Reminiscent of classical deck chair canvases as well as imagery and colours associated with the South African landscape, Happy Camper products are available in three thematic colourways inspired by Cape fynbos, sub-tropical forests and harsh Karoo landscapes: Floral, Forest and Veld.
Happy Camper materials are sourced locally, keeping the carbon footprint to a minimum. The detachable swatches on items are hand-woven from reclaimed pre-consumer textile waste strips, employing a unique combination of traditional fibre-based craft techniques developed by Mielie. In keeping with the space restrictions of most urban homes, furniture pieces in the Happy Camper collection have epoxy coated mild steel frames - allowing for clean lines and for items to be flat-packed and unobtrusively stored. The Happy Camper collections also offer playful alternatives for commercial settings.

. ISITHO AFRICAN INSPIRED FURNITURE
Looking to iconic African furniture for inspiration, Nicci Drzewicki's iSITho collection references solid furniture pieces, such as traditional headrests and seats, historically carved from single pieces of wood. iSITho products evoke a spirit of community and are suited to a wide range of residential and commercial settings.
Juxtaposition and unconventional combinations are key elements in this understated collection. The sketch-like frames created by the dynamic lines of the hand-bent steel rod iSITho bases ground the furniture whilst freeing up the actual weight. These slightly uneven bases are then paired with a variety of seat types, ranging from slick industrially rolled sheet metal and labour-intensive woven fine wiring, to natural surfaces such as hand-carved Bluegum and shaped Pine. All furniture components are assembled and fitted by Netshomi Zam, and the natural wood seats hand-carved by Right Mukoro. The steel components are welded together, polished and epoxy coated in four colourways: Black, White, Cream and Charcoal. No sealant has been applied to the natural wood seats, allowing the wood to weather as nature intended.
The iSITho collection also features optional custom-made seat cushions in an eclectic range of combinations including plain leather, crotched leather, African weaves, African print fabrics and other bold fabrics.
