Haldane Martin to launch three exciting new furniture lines
For the last few years renowned South African product and interior designer Haldane Martin has concentrated on producing engaging interiors for a variety of clients. In 2019 however, his focus will return to furniture, with three exciting new lines launching early next year – the Hula Outdoor Chair collection, the Plat/O Table collection and the Neo Spoke furniture range.
The Hula Outdoor Chair collection pays homage to the classic Salterini Hoop Chairs of the 1950s and includes a Dining Chair, Lounge Chair, Kitchen Stool and Bar Stool.
The reference to the Hula Hoop is reinforced by the shape of the pieces and the lighthearted nature of the range. Ergonomically shaped for comfort, a key differentiator of the design is a stacking back leg detail – essential for outdoor chairs, as they’re often brought inside for storage.
Plat/O is a collection of tables designed for use in myriad spaces – from the home to cafes or restaurants and sophisticated work environments. From ‘plateau’, meaning an area of level high ground, the collection includes a range of round and oblong shaped tops varying in size, from compact two-seater tables up to generous 10-seater dining tables, as well as a conference table, server table and bar table.
The Neo Spoke range is inspired by the iconic Windsor chair and is a contemporary, simplified interpretation of the traditional spoke back chair. Neo Spoke speaks to the emerging neo folk trend in interior design with two ranges: the Sectional Sofa Collection and the Neo Spoke Chair Collection. Each piece is made in solid European oak and manufactured using a combination of traditional joinery techniques and modern CNC woodworking technology.
