Floor Art

One of the most unusual new furniture designs on the market is the Cazembe Floor Art Collection by Olio Effect.

Below are four of my favourite pieces from the furniture range, the Masala Feature Chair and 2 seater, the S-Bend Feature Chair and the Sputnik Stool. Each of the pieces are hand-made from coconut stalks and rattan that have been moulded and cast in polished resin. This method of creation allows the furniture to take on beautifully organic forms that twist, bulge and dip to mimic and accommodate the human form.

The combination of materials result in flowing lines that emphasise and complement the curves of the furniture. The play of the light and dark lines creates almost a painterly effect, echoing those used on many tribal artworks and artifacts. In fact, I think you will agree, each of these pieces is really a masterpiece in itself!

The Olio Effect website is currently under construction but you can contact them through their facebook page.

    I have never seen anything like this before. So this means it can be used outdoors and indoors? I really love the look. It looks like a solid piece of wood.

    • Hi Yvette, I have just checked for you and the range can be used indoors or outdoors in an undercover area 🙂
