Haldane Martin, an iconic furniture design company in Cape Town, offers an array of chairs, stools and sofas, on top of lights, storage options and tables. We spotted a simple and elegant round bar stool from their Weightless Collection, a range made using eco-efficient means.
The chair is comprised of durable, lightweight, recycled stainless steel frames (triangulated and criss-crossed), inspired by South African wirework sculptures and windmills found in the Karoo. The stool can also be custom-fitted. For example, the Zebrano plywood seat can be made up in other veneers, upholstered or sprayed. The stainless steel frame can also be coated in various colours.
Designer Haldane Martin established his company in 2002 and has recently included an interior design service on top of his furniture range. To visit his store and ogle at award-winning furniture, find it at Fairweather House, 176 Sir Lowry Road, Woodstock, Cape Town.
The stools are available in three standard heights, retailing from R2 300 and are available directly from Haldane Martin.
