South African design has evolved in a interesting way in the last few years and an example of that is the Singita Lembombo Lodge.
Originally opened in 2001, Lebombo was always ahead of its time and from July 2016 has now come into its own. Its nature-focused, cutting edge design and philosophy of ‘touching the earth lightly’ benchmarked what future safaris would look like. Now, with the redesign and a minimalist, African abstract style, Lebombo leads the way once again offering the most forward-thinking safari in Africa. The experience has been transformed in a way that could enhance the guest’s connection with nature, taking a ‘less is more’ approach using exposed and natural products and creating spacious, sculpted spaces.
Cécile and Boyd is an south african interior design company responsible for the refurnishment of this luxury safari lodge. In this project it is possible to see how this pair of designers have mixed raw natural materials with man made industrial materials in such a chic way. Wood, stone, concrete, glass, metal, rattan and canvas have all been used beautifully to create a story that instantly tells you that you’re in Africa, and the best thing to do here is to appreciate it’s magnificent beauty.
The guest suites all with beautiful views have a grey, platinum and nickel palette with different tones of wood being used to warm up the dark tones. This reflects the darkly coloured boulders that surround the lodge, connecting it beautifully to the outside.
South African interior design has come on leaps and bounds and is currently producing design at a really high quality. It just proves that by embracing your own soul, personality and by being inspired by your own land and culture means that you will produce exceptional design.
