{ Pedersen + Lennard }

Luke Pedersen and James Lennard are the design masterminds behind the Cape Town based brand, Pedersen + Lennard. Marked by their fascination with South African craft and the clean aesthetic of their Scandinavian forefathers, they not only produce quality products, but design objects of desire that are innovative, simple and quirky.

It was love at first sight when I saw Pedersen + Lennard’s signature piece, the ‘bucket stool’ at the 2010 Design Indaba in South Africa. They now produce the version 2 ‘bucket stool’ that has a table surface under the seat, which can be flipped to use as a side table. The bucket is ideal for some extra storage space too.

Unfortunately I wasn’t able to attend this year’s Design Indaba, but apparently Pedersen + Lennard’s new ‘Ingvar Range’ created quite a stir and I can see why. Inspired by Ikea’s founder Ingvar Kamprad, this flat-pack range made from Scandinavian birch saves on shipping costs and has an 80% saving on packaging materials. It comes with all the necessary bolts and an Allen key and is super easy to assemble – I hear.
