Num Num Dining Table by Charles Haupt. Created in patinated bronze and glass, the Num Num collection of bronze tables is inspired by the native South African shrub of the same name, which grows prolifically along the coast.
Asht and teal custom Kassena Server by Dokter and Misses, inspired by the patterned adobe structures built by the Kassena people, who live in the Tiébélé region on the border of Ghana & Burkina Faso. The geometric patterns wrapped around the cabinets are derived from two literary texts in the Sotho and Tsonga languages.
Abstract nude - carved, incised and painted wood by Cecil Skotnes, who was known especially for his painted and incised wooden panels, striking woodblock prints, public murals, tapestries and sculpture. He pioneered a way of producing art that used earth pigments and indigenous wood to construct visual stories about the African past.
Ceramic bedside lamps by Ardmore, designed to capture the rich plant life and wild creatures of the Moremi Game Reserve, and made exclusively for Xigera. The lamps each depict a different animal and are adorned with patterns, colours and motifs that reference the fabrics and colour scheme of the suite.
“Itafile” ceramic side-tables (“itafile” means “table” in Xhosa) by Madoda Fani. They feature the rhythmically patterned carvings that have become the artist’s signature, calling to mind overlapping fish scales or insect exoskeletons. The tables’ strong mushroom-like silhouettes and all-brown colour palette draw the eye to the delicate details and incisions animating their surface.
Three stripe Karakul by Coral & Hive, an all-women, ethically operated company with some of the most talented weavers in South Africa, whose skills have been passed down for generations. The lounge carpet is made from Karakul wool, from sheep that are raised in the Karoo, in South Africa.
Kiaat and bronze “Tritons” table by sculptor Stanislaw Trzebinski. The bronze legs are inspired from the coral reefs he swam amongst as a child. They are produced from bronze using lost wax casting and finished with a natural patina.
Timber wardrobe by Otto du Plessis, with etched brass doors depicting landscapes and botanical scenes taken directly from the surrounding Moremi Reserve. These were based on drawings of baobabs, palms and other plants common to the Delta by Trevor Potter, a resident artist at Bronze Age.
