With the likes of Haldane Martins Shongololo sofa and Hex coffee table (behive inspired), furniture and lighting design certainly draws on the form and shape of landscapes , feathered friends and creepy crawly creatures to stir spirit and influences from the wilderness.
Prints, sketches, paintings and artworks have always used the facets of nature to archive the essense captured at a precise moment. Forever evolving, artists are finding more interesting ways to express their workings. Clinton Freidman makes use of over exposing imagery, or up close insights to a peculiar aspect of an organism.

Simply looking out of the window at the lush haven at our fingertips, it’s clear that Mother Nature is a growing and forever active source in our daily lives.

The wilderness is a never ending muse for creativity. It is ours to relish, ours to protect, absorb and draw on to create all things design.
