In 2008 Koop was invited to exhibit as part of a Design Indaba-KZNSA Christmas show. We enjoyed the opportunity to take one of our favourite materials, birch ply, into structural homeware, starting with a self-assembly Christmas tree. The flat pack range has grown to include tableware, a coat stand, a light fitting and bookends.
As our name suggests; (Koop can also be read as Co-op) we believe in collaborating and partnering with people and organisations who are experts in their fields and who contribute to a great product – other designers, craftspeople and manufacturers.
It is important to us that collaborators are recognised for their input, both in terms of publicity and a share of financial returns.
The Lisa Loves Design Range was designed in collaboration with graphic designer, Lisa Dixon, and the range is named after her design label.
