Luke Pedersen and James Lennard are the South African duo behind Pedersen + Lennard, a design company based in Cape Town. Known for their modern and clean residential and commercial products, the guys entered the retail arena by way of a downtown shop which presented their furniture designs and small home products directly to shoppers. A little while ago Pedersen + Lennard expanded their operations yet again with a major new settlement at The Woodstock Exchange that combines an office, a workshop and a cool café called Field Office.
The rectangular-shaped hangout totally adds up to the vibe of the city’s leading design hub and it’s obviously crafted by the designers themselves. It features a clean, simple interior, and is furnished with the duo’s fairlegs tables and benches. There’s also a small display that features a concise range of exemplary Pedersen + Lennard designs. And as the name somewhat implies, it’s very much intended as a multifunctional space where to relax, meet up with friends or work – mind you, wifi access here is free – over a cup of coffee and tasty bites.
