DESIGNER: DAVID KRYNAUW

David Krynauw grew up in one of the largest forestry regions in South Africa. Being constantly surrounded by trees and timber, he developed an immense passion for the medium and started experimenting with it from a young age.

In 2008, David decided to start his own furniture manufacturing business on his family farm in Piet Retief. His business grew steadily and he moved to Johannesburg where he developed his own design language and method, enabling him to create anything– from a chair to a building – using parts and joining them in ingenious ways.

He now employs around 60 people, creating a wide variety of furniture pieces and architectural structures.

David’s simplistic approach, ongoing passion, energy and love for his medium and craft is what sets him apart.
