CPDI Africa Feature:

Mvelo Desk Contemporary South African Furniture Design

What interested me the most in the Zulu symbols is when two symbols are joined together whether triangle or diamond they represent a union. I translated that union as people being married to their desks/ and careers. – Siyanda Mbele
Emerging South African designer Siyanda Mbele continues to challenge the perceptions of contemporary South African furniture design as he introduces his latest design, the Mvelo Desk. An exploration of modern working life the Mvelo Desk references the way people are seemingly ‘married’ to their careers, spending long periods sitting at their desks.


The Community Planning & Design Initiative Africa (CPDI Africa) is a culture-inspired, research based, design-build competition, created to inspire the development of successful neighborhoods and communities on the continent, with modern African architecture that is both culturally and environmentally sustainable.
