Tertius Strydom

Tertius Strydom's imaginative furniture and lighting designs are a world apart from the norm.

The incredibly imaginative Tertius Strydom is a furniture designer who relocated to a small town called Douglas, in the Karoo. Based on an enigmatic story of celestial beings crash landing on earth, his designs are made from steel, natural woods, leather, bones, horns, glass, and perspex, with the aim of mixing an element of 60s-influenced design with natural objects. The colours he has chosen to work in are red, mustard green and shades of water blue-greens. Strydom often works with found objects, coming up with different ideas to make them look beautiful and contemporary.
