Cala by Woodbender

WORDS Mary Garner

Local handcrafted bentwood furniture specialists Woodbender have launched The Cala, a new addition to the brand’s range of dining chairs.

Featuring a low backrest, The Cala is an adaptation of the brand’s Malmo dining chair. While The Malmo has a solid backrest, The Cala boasts an edgier look, with a focus on minimalist design principles, including clean lines and a simple silhouette.

The round edges and curved, low backrest of The Cala makes this design all about comfort and ideal for relaxed social settings.

Woodbender’s chairs, which are made to order and customisable in terms of timber and fabrics used, are all hand-made in South Africa.
