There are a few things that keep us motivated here at Raw Studios… from the smell of freshly made coffee to start our day to exciting new products and projects that energise us and encourage us to grow and push the boundaries. The third motivator is when hard work pays off… This got new meaning this year after winning the award for the best product design 2019 at 100% Design South Africa. We have been dreaming of changing our furniture into a structure you can live in and experience every day: this year it became a reality!
The final motivator is you, your feedback, your support and excitement for Inhouse. Thank you to all our new and loyal clients that have recognized the potential in Raw Studios and the exciting new potential of Inhouse.
With 100% Design 2019 behind us and with the overwhelmingly positive feedback received, we are eager to proceed and grow Inhouse into a product which can meet your most important needs.
After the launch of Inhouse, Visi interviewed Peet to get the inside scoop. The article will feature in this month’s issue; it’s the perfect opportunity to catch up on our big idea that you might have missed at 100% Design.
We’ll keep you in the loop of the Inhouse process… but for now, please bear with us as we proceed to develop Inhouse. We are currently compiling all our information regarding it in a compact format to make it easily accessible. We are also busy uploading the necessary information onto our website for quick referencing.
Remember to keep an eye out in your inbox; you may receive a link, a catalogue, a video… who knows? But more exciting information will follow.
Too eager to wait for more information? Follow us on Instagram@rawstudiosraw for weekly updates regarding Inhouse and other exciting projects.
After the judges diligently made their rounds through all the stands at 100% Design it was time to announce the winners. The awards evening took place at the Clout café designed by Studio Leelynch and fired up by Nando’s, an ideal setting for an exciting awards evening that showcased South Africa’s leading designers and innovators.
The awards included sections such as lighting design, textile design, best stand design and designer of the year. See them all here:
Best Lighting Design: Memphis Lighting Collection by Wiid Design and Ceramic Matters.

People usually expect big things from Raw Studios at 100% Design and this year, as always, we won’t disappoint. In addition to our collaboration with the curators to create a space for interesting workshops and talks we have been developing a range of sustainable and affordable timber frame buildings and homes that are flexible, adaptable, modular and can be customised to create a very personal home.Furniture you can live in, for those who demand well-considered design that’s healthy, environmentally responsible, fast and fuss-free.
We pride ourselves on being an environmentally responsible company and this is evident in our approach to design, raw materials procurement and manufacturing processes. However, since the Green Building Council South African does not test, review or certify products or materials, we have decided to compile a fact sheet to help prospective users to ascertain for themselves our commitment to sustainable business practices.
