Source Chair Range by Haldane Martin

Haldane Martin has always been a South African furniture designer that I've admired and respected. His designs are truly iconic. His designs are a portrayal of his interests which are South African cultural identity, biomimetics, sustainability, craft, digital design and complex geometry.

He launched his new Source Chair range at this years Design Indaba in Cape-Town, and I think they are fantastic, take a look:

 Source Upholstered Chair

The Source dining chair, with its shapely buttoned upholstered seat is the most comfortable chair in the Source family. Its solid timber legs give it a warm crafted feel.

The chair is available in a range of commercial felt, and clients can also supply their own fabric

Source Woven Chair

The Source Woven Chair is a hybrid between the Source Wire Chair and the Zulu Mama Cafe Chair. The weaving is finer than the Zulu Mama chair. The seat is more upright than the Zulu Mama Cafe Chair, making it more suited to being used as a dining chair.
The frame is made from 60% recycled stainless steel, which can be powder coated in a variety of colours. The traditional Zulu basket weaving material is UV stable Polypropylene. These materials enable the chair to be used in and outdoors

Source Wire Chair

The inspiration behind the Source Wire Chair’s seat pattern is phyllotaxis – the beautiful, spiral growth pattern found in leaf and flower petal geometry. This organic pattern is naturally in harmony with the outdoor environment that it can be used in.
The spiral seats physical structure functions both ergonomically and economically, as the pattern is most dense where one’s body comes into contact with the seat and less dense towards the periphery.
It is made from CNC bent, rustproof, 60% recycled, stainless steel wire and is powder-coated in a variety of floral and neutral colours. A seat cushion is also available for extra comfort and can be upholstered in a variety of fabrics, including customers own material
