Rodney Band is a Cape Town-based artist/designer who produces individual hand-turned bowls and handmade table tops from a wide variety of African woods. These woods are unique and not readily available to the rest of the world. Each piece of wood has a distinct character that comes to life as the bowl is turned, making Band's work exclusive in the marketplace.
Since exhibiting at Design Indaba Expo 2014, Band went on to win the furniture section of the Samsung Inspire Design competition 2014, was chosen by the Department of Trade and Industry to represent South Africa at MAISON&OBJET in Paris, and started exporting more of his work to international buyers. His work has also been featured in many local and international publications.
Band's genuine love of wood is evident in his imaginative interpretations of the raw product. He produces a limited amount of work each year, keeping it unique, exclusive and in demand.
