Private Commissions

The appeal of individuality, authenticity and sustainability.

Why commission a piece from AVOOVA?

Practical, resilient and versatile.

Ostrich shell is one of the more versatile and practical organic mediums to work with in terms of decorative finishes. It has a warm, sensual and tactile look but is durable and heat and water-resistant (within reason). The eggshell can be applied to flat and round surfaces (convex and concave) and to most materials from wood to steel, glass and ceramics, rock, resin and acrylic.

Truly a unique process

Custom Designed

Beauty by design

Designs can be clean, contemporary and discreet or elaborate, bold and expressive….or anything in between.

African heritage

During the design and construction stage, we may work with some of the most talented craftsmen and furniture makers in Cape Town. The piece is then sent deep into the Karoo to be transformed by the skilled team at our workshops in Prince Albert into something completely unique… into a piece of ancient Africa, shaped by its people.

Environmentally sustainable

Ostrich shell is an eco-friendly/sustainable decorative material and we go to great lengths to ensure our suppliers also practice sustainable policies, wherever possible

A talking point

An Avoova commission is a great conversation piece, being the marriage of modern design and the finest furniture making skills. It speaks of the wide open plains of the Karoo, of nomadic peoples, traditional decorating techniques and the world’s largest living bird.

Enduring good looks

We have made table tops and bar counters that still look beautiful and fresh after many years use.

International experience

AVOOVA has a lot of experience in bespoke furniture, having worked with many leading interior designers and architects from around the world, making extraordinary pieces for some of the highest profile interiors anywhere. Avoova pieces can be found on the two largest private yachts in the world, in some of the best lodges in Kenya and the Kruger, at villas in Cairo and Nice, in boardrooms from London to Los Angeles …and a luxury resort in Thailand.
