Floating Bamboo Basin Unit

This floating Bamboo Basin Unit was custom designed for a photo studio in Blaauberg. For that personal touch a bit of laser engraving was added.

Bamboo Side Table

This contemporary designed side table was another addition to the Square Cube photo studio. With its oddly shaped legs it fills a big open space and is a real eye catcher.

 

Bamboo Stairs

These bamboo stairs were made precisely to the customers requests. All the joins were mitre joins keeping the flow of the bamboo lines and finished off with a light white wash. It is the feature piece in the main bedroom leading in to the bathroom.

DID YOU KNOW? - Bamboo can grow up to 1 meter (over 3 feet) in 24 hours. This fantastic rate of growth has been witnessed on occasion with the moso variety of bamboo that is common in China and Japan. A bamboo shoot emerges from the ground at the full diameter that it will have. It then quickly grows straight up as a bare pole for several weeks until it reaches full height. After this, secondary branches will begin growing from the nodes and these will bear leaves. New bamboo stalks must be allowed to mature for 3-5 years before the woody material is hard enough to harvest and use.

Custom designed bar unit to clients preference. Finished off with strand woven bamboo counter top and doors.

DID YOU KNOW? - Bamboo has a tensile strength higher than steel. Bamboo is incredibly strong, with a tensile strength of 28,000 pounds per square inch. The strength of bamboo makes it a great construction material. It has been used to build suspension bridges in China for at least 1,000 years. Bamboo poles can also be used in place of steel to make reinforced concrete.
