Meyer Von Wielligh, "Two Oceans", Oak and Ash Dining Table

Estimated Production Time11-12 weeks

About

This unique large scale dining table is made of ebonized ash by Meyer von Wielligh, a carpentry studio in George, South Africa. It is part of the "Two Oceans" series that includes a drinks cabinet and sideboard, all hand carved to replicate the ripples and movement of the ocean, a nod to the designers’ love of nature and its preservation. Meyer von Wielligh's large scale pieces are intricately crafted and speak of their affection and respect for the uniqueness and creative potential of wood. Environmental sustainability is a core concern they have a tree nursery on their premises and educate staff on green-living practices. Founders Abrie von Wielligh and Norman Meyer studied together and, after completing their cabinet-making apprenticeships, began the company in 2004. Meyer von Wielligh’s approach to furniture design reflects the gentle lines and intricate details found in nature, where nature provides an array of colors, textures and materials that enhance creative possibilities. The company respects the uniqueness of wood and showcases this in its designs, combining a fresh approach to furniture with proven cabinetmaking techniques.

About The Maker

Southern Guild

View Profile
Southern Guild has spearheaded the high-end design category in Africa, propelling its artist-designers to make spirited, challenging and complex work. Its highly curated exhibitions have redefined global perceptions of African design and escalated its value on the international market. Since being founded in 2008 as the sole gallery representing locally made limited-edition design, Southern Guild has birthed a new category for artists and designers in South Africa. In 2011 it became the first African gallery to present at Design Miami, and in 2015 it was the first to be featured at Christie’s London’s annual design auction. The gallery shows regularly at Design Miami in Basel and the US, at Design Days Dubai and the Collective Design Fair in New York, resulting in sales to leading architects, top collectors and respected museums. It has had work from its collections included in Vitra Design Museum’s “Making Africa” exhibition and “Beauty–Cooper Hewitt Design Triennial” at the Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum. Against the backdrop of a design industry that is still fairly young, Southern Guild gives designers a platform to reimagine what is possible. Founders Trevyn and Julian McGowan are embedded in the South African cultural landscape and play integral roles in guiding, advising and mentoring designers.
