NØDE is a design studio producing metal furniture and interior products in Cape Town. Headed by Charles Haupt and Gerrit Giebel, it is the result of Bronze Age Studio branching out into new design territory. NØDE combines industrial design and modern production, while retaining an element of signature surface detailing and finishing.
The studio’s approach emphasizes human interaction with materials and surfaces, as well as constant development into methods of hand cutting textures into metal. This has been refined to a point where Node is able to hand carve and therefore sculpt in metals like aluminium. One of its first products, the NØDE stool, was longlisted in the 2019 Dezeen Awards in the seating design category.
