Unpretentious yet striking, these curvaceous beauties by minima are elegant enough for your lounge yet robust enough for a covered patio.
The latest addition to minima’s growing furniture range is all about simplicity, clean lines and attention to detail. Curved components of the Radius seating range are digitally cut from sustainable birch plywood and radially arranged to create this trademark undulating form.
The man behind these functional art pieces is designer and architectural technologist Jacques Cronje, who has always had a deep respect for timber and geometry. “Wood is one of the original materials used to create objects,” he says. “It is now being made relevant again thanks to evolving technology… An ancient material has become new.”
This accessible range, launched at the NEXT19 Trade Exhibition in Cape Town earlier this year, comprises three chairs, a barstool, a kitchen stool and an occasional stool.
