The golden sandy beaches Durban, South Africa and orangy desert vistas of Muscat, Oman provide the inspiration for a collection of furniture by Bofred. BASK merges the evocative emotions that emerge from both places. The Bofred signature linear style translates across a complementary collection of chairs, tables, and lighting.
The main colour palette drawn from the earth and ocean is warm and earthy, with dark metals and woods providing contrast. The grains of the desert are referenced in the surface textures as seen in the WADI table whose legs form graceful arches inspired by the architectural details of Muscat. The sculptural BAHLA Chair invokes ancient African wood carving traditions and the majestic thrones used by royalty.
Based in Cape Town, South Africa Bofred was started in 2015 by Christa Botha and Carla Erasmus. The duo both have backgrounds in fine art and draw on this to create Bofred Collections, as well as those produced in collaboration with local designers, ceramicists and artists.
