Inspired by early Cape Dutch furniture and iconic Cape heritage sites such as Groot Constantia and the Castle of Good Hope, the nostalgic Riempie Collection is a celebration of our European heritage. Time-honoured traditional joinery in solid timber has been combined with bold lines and contemporary proportions.
The Malaysian hand-caning weaving technique used in the fine mesh on the seat and back has been scaled up and woven in durable plastic (high-density polypropylene) to give the collection a colourful twist. Various coloured plastic options are available, as well as black plastic made from recycled factory waste.
The chair is made from solid Kiaat timber, finished with outdoor oil. This makes it ideal for use on covered patios. Other hardwood timbers and finishes are also available.
