What stands out about South African achievers is that they so often tend to be successful in 
more than one career at a time. This week we got to know the many, fascinating sides of winemaker turned designer David Krynauw.

David spent his teens on a farm in Piet Retief where his father had a Eucalyptus plantation. After studying then practicing as a winemaker in the US, he moved back to the farm to start making furniture - which recently – led him to architecture.

Last year, this independent-minded artist moved his factory and thirty staff from Piet Retief to Joburg where he employed another thirty people off the street, training them in every aspect of his business. A business that’s commercially successful and creatively ground-breaking.

It was one of his light designs, The Haywire, which won David the famous ‘object that moves’ award. It sold at Christies in London and became a collectable and an international seller.

This business is the rising tide which lifts all boats. David has six designers already and regularly offers internships to train young talent. May he and his team continue to prosper.
