  • Nguni Dining Chair 

    Nguni chair by Cape Town designer John Vogel

    This elegant chair was originally designed for a game lodge in Botswana whose name in Tswana means 'horns'.

    The back of the chair echoes the form of the proud Nguni cattle horn in the back of the chair.

    Ngunis are the traditional cattle of the Zulu people, and have very distinctively shaped forward-curving horns (see pics) which is what has been referenced to in this design. The woven seat also references traditional 'riempie' seats that were used by the early European settlers in South Africa.

    The Nguni chair is available in Solid Ash, Iroko timbers, and in oil colours: Clear, White, Light and Dark Grey, Light and Dark Brown

    Hand woven cord seating available in 11 colours, amongst others:
    canvass, red, blue, hazel, cuckoo, mocha, gazelle and granite.
