designers based at the new Braamfontein design development that work with Nando’s to create their
casas around the world. They include:
Dokter and Misses is a product and furniture design duo operating out of Johannesburg since 2007.
They are known for their whimsical and weird design language that fuses graphic and sculptural forms.
Houtlander is a team of passionate craftsman who strive to make considered, timeless furniture. The
pair draw on South African as well as Scandinavian craft traditions, translating and transforming different
cultural references to create minimalist, contemporary pieces.
Joe Paine is a product and furniture designer from Johannesburg aiming to produce original products
that are both interesting visually and conceptually, as they are to use. Born from processes found within
the industrial vernacular of Johannesburg and of its spirit, the products can be both hard-edged and
delicate in one breath.
Mash T Design Studio was established by Thabisa Mjo, who sees herself as a storyteller rather than a
designer. She is interested in evoking meaningful responses from the people whose traditions and
fashions are reflected in the interior design products she creates. Her work incorporates traditional
African materials into cool but playful creations.
Monique Vee is a South African interior and product designer known for bold, new interpretations of
space and functional objects. She aims to suggest alternative ways to experience space and objects,
evaluating what is necessary to perform functions and how these functions may be organised to emote
enhanced client and user interactions.
TheUrbanative is a contemporary African furniture and product design company in South Africa. Their
products are defined and differentiated by the juxtaposition of abstracted ethnic cultural graphics and
motifs with the functionality and feel of classical European Mid-century and Bauhaus furniture
