The company, which they started in October 2017, was recently a finalist in the National Furniture Design competition, organised by the Department of Trade and Industry (dti).
The competition is aimed at identifying and nurturing furniture design talent, raising the profile of furniture manufacturing in South Africa and increasing the industry’s competitiveness by encouraging new product design and differentiation. The company will also showcase its work at the upcoming Decorex.
The Mthembus said they had always been passionate about design.
“This is how we ended up in the architecture and interior design industry. While working in the industry, we started noticing an increased demand for customised furniture design services for our affluent clientele and that led us to gain an interest in furniture design and manufacturing,” Nqobile Mthembu said.
