Wiid Design

Wiid Design is a Cape Town based design studio, established by Laurie Wiid van Heerden. Wiid design creates products & objects that can be seen as the interface between art and design – where materials are transformed into life enriching and durable products.

Wiid Design’s work comes from a conceptual and artistic environment, an angle on various topics of contemporary culture, with a focus on traditional handcrafting in combination with avant-garde techniques. By combining handcrafting and specialist techniques, Wiid transforms materials into life-enriching and durable objet d’art. Being nominated as a finalist in the Absolut Visi Designer of the year competition in the emerging designer category for 2011 and having exhibited at international design fairs such as 100% Design in London, Design Days Dubai, Design Miami/Basel in Switzerland and Design Miami in the US just shows the quality of work and attention to detail that Wiid Design presents in its work.

Laurie Wiid van Heerden received the “maker to market” award at the annual Southern Guild Design Foundation awards ceremony in 2013. This award recognizes a design company that understands the value of packaging, for presentation and protection, identity and brand building, logistics and the various processes that take place between production and sales.

Wiid’s product range includes furniture items such as stools, side tables, dining tables, benches and also a range of lighting, tableware and collectible hand-carved objects.
