Spoken like a true democratic designer Fayaaz Mahomed, founder of Cape Town-based design studio Unfayzd Design, says that he believes everyone should have access to good design and beautiful things. For him the biggest benefit of design is how it has the ability to improve life. Be it through products or systems, it can uplift communities. And that is the type of talk we like to hear.
Launched last year at Design Indaba, Unfayzdesign is a product design brand. They focus on the design and manufacture of bespoke furniture and lighting, as well as other home and decor products. Fayaaz created a range of modern and simplistic furniture using Plywood, OSB and Valchromat as well as a range of ambient lighting products. We like the way Fayaaz integrated the slots in his designs to make them playful and innocent while still being function, each piece is flat packed and easy to assemble.
Recently they created a custom shelving solution for The TNT Honey store, which also caught the eye of ELLE Décor. The shelving is super practical its honeycomb shapes are just beautiful.
