NICOLENE VAN DER WALT
South African born, Berlin-based Nicolene van der Walt combines her backgrounds in contemporary art and classical woodworking to create functional, sculptural objects and free-standing furniture. The designer-woodworker handcrafts one-off pieces, limited editions, and small-batch productions — equal parts playful and elegant — from carefully selected solid wood sourced from sustainably managed forests in Germany. Often inspired by personal history, her minimalistic pieces are characterized by the repetition of organic forms, frequently accompanied by an element of surprise.
