Designing a range of furniture for the KUNI brand and Gys Potgieter’s treasure trove of large scale well-aged timber, catapulted my inspiration into traditional carpentry methods of mortise and tenon interfaces, where metal components were not the glue that joined pieces of wood together. A design preference for clean lines and suspended shapes creates a new challenge when faced with heavy pieces of timber, but the image of an aeroplane wing glides into the design, supported by a rudder like leg and components that slides into position as the timber interlocks.
Inline Spaces is an architectural design consultancy that embraces the challenge and individual approach of every project. I started to hone my skill in 1990 as a residential architect with the emphasis on creating spaces conducive to specific lifestyles. My passion for detail design resulted in my diversifying into industrial and furniture design, which forms a substantial part of my discipline and skill.
