Crowned the 2015 100% Design South Africa Designer of the Year, furniture designer David Krynauw’s solid wood furniture utilises wood sourced from his family farm. Krynauw grew up a maker and has always had his hands busy constructing things; "I was raised in a home where we were encouraged to make things as opposed to buying things” he explains.
Describing wood as “the most versatile medium on earth”, Krynauw’s designs’ star quality lies in their simplicity. Among his most iconic items are his Haywire Chandelier which won him Southern Guild Design Foundation’s Object that Moves Award in 2014.
Visits to his studio workshop at Victoria Yards are by appointment only.
