The Wood Whisperer – Pierre Cronje July 19, 2016 – Posted in: Design, Unique Collections – Tags: craftmanship, furniture, investment piece, Pierre Cronje
To be an icon in your own lifetime is a rare privilege that few attain while still alive. Over three decades ago one such master craftsman, Pierre Cronje, launched his furniture restoration business and soon attained a very sought-after reputation with custom design and hand-crafted solid wood furniture with his innovative vision. His ability to incorporate heritage into a contemporary lifestyle, while maintaining high quality craftsmanship with design excellence, soon expanded his business internationally.
“I am inspired by the Symbiotic Wisdom of Wood and Mankind. Furniture Design is the transformative process that guides and shapes wood towards revealing its final purpose.” PIERRE CRONJE
The workshop in Cape Town currently keeps 140 dedicated craftsmen focussed on the Pierre Cronje tradition of quality hand-made pieces that celebrate the best of their materials and workmanship with master artisans.
The Pierre Cronje value proposition is to never compromise the high standards of fine quality work with attention to detail, only using solid timbers from sustainable forests and design integrity. Although a well-equipped factory with highly skilled artisans to facilitate the labour intensive process, Pierre Cronje has undertaken to not revert to mass production. It is no surprise that all his pieces have a lifetime structural and quality guarantee.
We even speculate that when trees near the end of their natural life, they all secretly wish to end up in the hands of Pierre and his team to create a glorious celebration of years in nature! Ziora would like to invite you to experience the Pierre Cronje collection right here.
