Presentation of the artist
Oliver Whyte is a multidisciplinary design studio established by Ross Robertson, focusing on contemporary furniture design, limited edition objects and interior-architecture.
Guided by Ross’s background in architecture, Oliver Whyte’s design philosophy is rooted in the use of strong forms, clean lines and rich materials taken from his built environment. All Oliver Whyte pieces are handmade in South Africa by highly skilled artisans – combining their passion with his design, to form a truly unique object.
The spatial design studio within Oliver Whyte encompasses everything from concept design development and architectural solutions, to interior architecture and custom design for the residential, retail and hospitality industry.
Oliver Whyte’s aim for perfection is constant and is apparent even in designs aiming for imperfection – this can be seen in the exploration and deconstruction of raw materials to harness a new beauty.
