John Vogel has a design background in architecture and first started creating furniture as a student. Although he has worked in many materials, his strongest affinity is for timber and most of his inspiration comes from the natural world and the exploration of organic forms.
Working with the pretext that the state of our consciousness is proportional to the quality of our relationship with nature, the focus of his work is to create simple and imaginative pieces which create connections between people and the natural world. His work is handcrafted and embodies a South African vernacular. It is also beautifully finished, functional and timeless. He designs, prototypes and manufactures in-house, and his Cape Town workshop is equipped to supply quality products anywhere in the world. He believes strongly in a sustainable business model: tree planting is funded from products sold and in time more wood will be replaced than used.
