Leave a comment

So you’ve watched the teaser video, above, right? Good, now let’s get you up to speed with the rest of the story.

In our last blog newsletter we gave a little taste of a current project for the University of Pretoria , which sparked the development of a brand new furniture range. (Didn’t read it? Find out more by clicking on this link: …).

The Stilts Range.

RAW Studios Stilts

Is a new living- centred system that can adapt to our ever changing environments, be it at home or in the workspace. This range can easily be customized to suit not only your needs but also your wants.

It’s just too exciting to keep it to ourselves! So, we’re going to shed some light on the range as we go along.

These images are only the tip of the iceberg of what The Stilts can do. And to be honest, it’s kind of crazy how we just keep discovering new possibilities and solutions within this range. We’re starting to wonder if it even has limits…

We’re looking forward to seeing where the Stilt’s road takes us and will keep you updated on developments. Give us a shout and let us know what you think.

The countdown has started… The world is coming to Africa.

Future Africa Institute Artist Sketch RAW

Imagine an existing space where human, space and object are intertwined, where interaction is a core aspect of creating synergy between humans and their environment.

Well, stop imagining because this concept is already in the making at the Future Africa Institute, a campus for international students aimed at creating a holistic and interactive environment. Earthworld Architects’design addresses the often disconnectedness formed in the built environment by making the user an integral part of the context. The design is human centred, and creates a sense of belonging for the user.

Where does RAW fit into the picture you ask?

Earthworld Architects and the University of Pretoria, brought us on board to apply our unique furniture design to the new thinking that Future Africa Institute encompasses.

With such an exciting project, we didn’t hesitate to take on the challenge.

Staying true to modular systems, we’re approaching this range from a different perspective, and giving a fresh take on everyday furniture and spaces while pushing our core design ideas of considered simplicity, efficiency in production and of course… lovability. The range will be easy to assemble, install and move as it uses minimum permanent fixing.

RAW is ready to go all out with this range and explore all the possibilities on offer. Stay tuned for details early 2017. In the meantime, here are a few snapshots of what we’ve been up to for this project:

Project Testimonial – Africa Centre

Leave a comment

It took a forward thinking organization in need of change, combined with an architect team with real vision, to create what is quickly becoming known as the “new” Africa Centre. Raw is proud to have played a significant part in the transformation of the workspaces and interiors at this legendary international research centre in rural Kwazulu-Natal.

Nandos Columbine with Raw’s Ohtwo Chairs

Even before Raw’s new Ohtwo™ chairs were available to order, interior designer Anne Maclachlan from Foundation Design specified them for use in the new Nandos Columbine Restaurant. The fact that the chairs are available in two model types and eight colour choices was also not lost on her as it fit beautifully into her vision for this interior. We love the design at Nandos Columbine but that’s just a start for Ohtwo as the product has now been taken up in the specification documents for two other large and well-known brands.
