Ngala Buying and selling Co., importer of sustainable and ethically sourced handmade lighting, furnishings and residential décor from Africa, introduced a brand new partnership with Durban, South Africa-based Clarisse Design for a line of leather-based pendant lighting.
“Once I noticed these pendants in South Africa, I knew instantly we wanted to trace down the maker and introduce them in America,” stated Lawson Ricketts, inventive director and co-founder of Ngala Buying and selling Co. “Xavier Clarisse’s work has a theme of theatricality of the item itself – it’s interactive, filled with motion and playfulness. It provides an exquisite new feeling to our choices.”
The preliminary providing of Clarisse Design lighting contains two types: Scrumptious and Blade lights. The Scrumptious pendant, provided in seven colours, encompasses a large-scale assortment of 5 leather-based Philodendron Monstera (Scrumptious Monster) leaves backed with stainless-steel. The Blade pendant gives a slender different, manufactured from coloured leather-based and accented with brass or stainless-steel closures. The Blade pendant is on the market in three sizes and 7 colours, that includes pierced or unpierced leather-based choices.
Based by Xavier Clarisse, Clarisse Design aligns with Ngala Buying and selling Co.’s mission to deliver a narrative of curated, handmade, luxurious South African design to the North American market. Dwelling in South Africa, Clarisse is impressed by his native environment of each nature and the native aesthetic. The plentiful subtropical vegetation, vibrant shade and variety of Durban is mirrored in a lot of his designs.
“I attempt to translate my standpoint in a easy and trustworthy approach with product design,” stated Clarisse, founding father of Clarisse Design. “My work intersects artwork and design, and the ideas are infused with significant layers. Having lived in Africa for fifteen years, I want to painting the actual essence of my adopted house, free from idealizations and stereotypes.”
