We have produced many pieces for our Rosette collection, such as servers, drinks cabinets, custom installati­ons, lamps and pedestals. This early piece illustrate­s how we approach design – we never look at what the trends are.

Our focus is on the way we tell our story, what our perspectiv­e is and how we can create the antiques of the future.

Greg and I were in Mauritius, walking around the markets of Port Louis. It was unbearably hot, so we escaped into a tiny, dark, cool general dealer-type store. While walking around, we found these amazing metal flowers; they inspired this collection. We imagined a field of Namaqualan­d daisies, and we wanted to replicate that in a piece of furniture.
