Furniture design

I designed and built this set of tables as a personal project. They are for sale in various boutique design shops across South Africa. I was also commissioned to provide 25 of these to the Alexander Theatre in Johannesburg.

Mocana brand development

I developed the Mocana brand as a fresher, cooler and more urban alternative to where the majority of yoga brands are positioned. A large sector of the yoga market are people who see yoga as a great way to exercise and relax, but don’t necessarily identify with the more spiritual aspect that seems to permeate the messaging of many yoga brands.

To make Mocana stand out as a premium brand, we decided on a minimalist approach to design, no florid Ohm signs, flowery patterns or earth tones, but rather clean crisp minimalist design which is still fun and light-hearted. All packing design, product design, photography & video work was done by me.

Fashion designer Suzanne Heyns and I collaborated in the Audi Fashion week. She wanted some industrial looking jewellery pieces to complement her clothing line. I designed and built the all-steel pieces a few weeks before the exhibition.

I designed this parabolic fan as my final piece for the last year of Industrial Design my industrial design course at the university of Johannesburg. One day when I have time I'm going to put this into production, unlike a normal which is basically a angled flat slat which pushes air down, the parabolic curve will push air outwards in a semi-circular pattern. Allowing for much better air distribution.

I designed this hair-dryer while I was a student. The switch is incorporated into the bottom of the handle. I'd love to see this in production one day.

Plastic Milk jugs

Another student project, in this design I use one continuous line which runs along the entire object.
