About

Team

Meet Tim and Lauren, the team behind this modular shelving system. Together, they run TimHarris Design. A design focussed, client centric, creative studio offering bespoke solutions to individuals and brands in the disciplines of spatial, furniture and graphic design.

Tim grew up working with wood in his father’s professional grade workshop. Later, he studied design at the renowned Red & Yellow School, which led him to Cape Town’s ad industry. Here he spent over a decade as an awarded ‘creative’ before venturing out on his own.

Lauren, with her passion for travel, has for many years, found a home as a bespoke tour designer for Europe’s elite. Demanding exceptional customer service and logistical superpowers, this role has equipped her with uniquely specialised and challenging professional experience. 

Video

Join us as we investigate a really underutilised opportunity that exists in every single interior. We take you through the assembly and installation of our modular wall mounted furniture system and then create a compelling and functional shelving setup. The video showcases some of the unique benefits of the system and outlines a range of potential usage opportunities.

Showroom

Come and experience the simplicity, adaptability, attention to detail and quality of our modular shelving system for yourself.

Our studio is located in the creative hub of Woodstock, Cape Town, on the top floor of a repurposed printing press.

Please call ahead though, as we’re out regularly. We adhere strictly to all Covid-19 sanitary protocols.

Studio 210, Mason’s Press, 7 Ravenscraig Rd, Woodsctock, Cape Town  (Secure visitors parking is usually available.)

Installation

It’s simple. Once the horizontal rails are securely mounted on your wall, simply hang your components. They can be placed either way up, anywhere along the rails, with nothing but gravity securing them in place. This means you are free to reposition each component as often as you like.

Naturally, it is important to ensure that your wall is strong and smooth, not crumbly or overly textured. The system is compatible with drywalling as long as common sense is applied when loading the shelves. 

All orders are delivered in flat pack format, together with simple assembly instructions and the required screws and plugs.

But if you prefer, we do offer assembly and installation services by skilled artisans. Please enquire about this with us directly.

Detail

We love precision. One of the hallmarks of this modular shelving system is the simplicity of the construction. This means that even though the elements are delivered flat packed, they are able to be assembled beautifully, (and quickly). The satin texture of the birch ply and the subtle grain of the powder coated aluminium come together effortlessly forming joins that are crisp and precise.

Made in Cape Town. Our local partners and artisans are world class. They’ve shared in and supported our journey of incremental refinement toward a product we’re all incredibly proud of. So, while we might be able to produce our product more cheaply overseas, we’re happily choosing not to. We trust our market will understand.

Quality takes time. We make all components to order. Please allow three to four weeks from payment to delivery. If you have a very urgent request, please let us know and we will do our best to speed things up.  

Customisation. Variations in size, material and colour are possible. Please contact us to discuss your bespoke requirements. 

Payment

We partner with Payfast. Payfast is South Africa’s leading payment gateway. They offer fast, secure and convenient payment options. Upon confirming an order, customers are directed to Payfast’s secure platform to finalise payment. 

Delivery

We deliver throughout South Africa. We also offer customers the option of collecting their orders direct from our studio in Woodstock, Cape Town. If this is your preference, please do call ahead to ensure we don’t miss you. 

Contact

We are always here for you. We’re a boutique design business and we love working directly with our clients to ensure their satisfaction. If you have any questions, comments or issues please don’t hesitate to be in touch with us.
