Iconic furniture & interior designer Haldane Martin graduated in Industrial Design in 1992. In 1994 he began his own contemporary furniture design company in SA’s design capital, Cape Town.
His animated furniture designs such as the internationally acclaimed Songololo Sofa and the SABS award winning Zulu Mama chair have become much loved icons of a new South African cultural design identity.
The Haldane Martin furniture collection which is sought after by design connoisseur’s worldwide is manufactured and sold under license by high quality furniture manufacturer Leon CCXIX. This strategic collaboration which began in June 2014 will continue to grow with Haldane creating new furniture designs on a regular basis.
The studio has recently begun offering high concept interior design. The first large scale commercial project, Truth Coffee’s Steampunk inspired HQ, was named the “world’s best coffee shop” by MSN Travel in 2013.
Haldane’s unique design skill is in being able to work closely with his clients to find each projects unique identity and to infuse this personality into three dimensional objects and spaces. Concept, aesthetics, and function are masterfully integrated into one seamless whole.
Haldane is constantly evolving his work through explorations into indigenous craft, sustainability, cultural identity, bio-mimicry, complex geometry and digital design. He continuously strives to capture the zeitgeist in a timeless way.
The innovative interior installations are elegantly detailed and timeously executed with the assistance of his professional team from their studio in Woodstock.
The result is iconic design which inspires.
