OKHA designs bespoke furniture, lighting and objet d'art.
Creative Director and designer, Adam Court has a background in fine art and has worked in various creative formats and across many genres, including film, fashion, and photography. With his explorative, forward-thinking and unorthodox approach to design, unconstrained by formal training, he has developed the brand into the prominent South African design label it is today.
With its headquarters in Cape Town, a city with an artisanal history and unrivaled beauty, OKHA has a design language that makes each piece both furniture and artwork. “It is no longer good enough to create luxury for luxury's sake," says Court. "Luxury must go beyond consumerism, finding its basis in the integrity of design and truth to materials. Design is an art where both form and function remain intact." OKHA prefers organic materials that have inherent value and lasting quality. Court and his team frequently turn to brass, leather, copper, timber, wool, and stone, which they carefully craft, hone and sculpt until the perfect design expression is realized.
In addition to furniture design, OKHA's repertoire includes interior design for residential and hospitality projects.
