Local furniture brand SPAAS, established in 2015, creates high-quality, flat-pack furniture that is both sustainable and affordable.
The brainchild of Cape Town designer Dean Westmore and Paarl-based architects Peter Neokorides and Gerhard Kriel, SPAAS brings together form and function with a easily transportable furniture collection that’s simple to assemble. “Our collection of designer furniture is manufactured using FSC-certified wood (meaning it comes from a sustainable source) and all our products arrive flat-packed and ready to assemble without glue or screws,” says Dean.
“Like all great adventures, our company developed rather organically,” he says. “We didn’t plan on starting a furniture business: all we did was make things we loved, in our own time. Like a hobby. We soon found out that other people loved our furniture too.
