Despite previously working as a process engineer in the mining industry, Mpho Vackier now finds fulfilment as a culturally-informed interior designer. Her work (as part of the Urban Native design brand) is inspired by the clean functionality of midcentury European furniture design coupled with the vibrant geometric style of Ndebele textiles.

Vackier is inspired by African cultural signifiers, patterns and graphic arrangements which she translates into contemporary urban pieces of furniture. Functionality, aesthetic balance and the space in which her creations would later reside all form part of the thought process as she fashions her household pieces out of steel and various kinds of wood.
