The Radius seating range, recently launched at Decorex Cape Town, is the latest addition to the minima brand’s growing collection of lighting and furniture products.
The Radius furniture pieces follow a similar design logic to the original minima lighting pieces; that of components radially arranged to create curved forms. And in the case of the new seating range, gentle curves perfect for comfortable seating. Expressing the designers’ love of geometry, the common radius shared throughout the range provides a visual thread linking the individual pieces with a subtle coherence of form.
With minima’s trademark simplicity, clean lines and attention to detail, the new furniture pieces are well proportioned, comfortable and will make a contemporary statement in any space. Made from sustainable Birch Plywood, they are suitable for indoor or covered outdoor areas and are robust enough for commercial use.
About the Designer
South African designer Jacques Cronje has spent his entire career working with wood; initially in technical detailing for timber homes and resorts, and since 2007, focusing on the design of timber homes and projects via his architectural practice, Timber Design.
His growing interest in the rapidly evolving field of digital design and fabrication, combined with his love of wood, led him to product design in 2012. And later to the launch of his product design brand, minima, at the 2014 Design Indaba expo.
Makers of digitally-cut wooden lighting and furniture, minima has created over 30 different styles of pendant lights – made from birch-ply or bamboo , a series of occasional stools, including the playful Baobab duo, his Modulus range of clip-together stools and the award-winning Flow bench.
By combining his design sense and use of digital technology with a love for wood, Jacques and his dedicated team find a deep sense of fulfillment in creating pieces of functional wooden art.
