Charles Haupt, Num Num Branch I, RSA, 2017

Charles Haupts’ Num Num Series takes cast bronze components and utilizes them as dynamic table supports or stands. These seemingly abstract forms take inspiration from the thorns of the native South African Num Num shrub. The indigenous Southern African Num Num tree, given its sharp thorns, is often used as a protective hedge around homes. Haupt uses nature and natural curiosities when experimenting with various traditional and contemporary techniques, resulting in a masterfully balanced and beautifully elegant work of functional art.

Blending both art and design, his limited-edition design pieces take influence from Cape Town’s blurring line between urban developments and natural organic forms. Hauplt comments ‘I’m a great lover of functional design, yet also have a lot of respect for sculptural art. So, I decided to combine the two.’

Charles Haupt is an industrial designer based in Cape Town. He is part of the design team, Bronze Age, a design studio that uses both modern fabrication and traditional bronze sculpture-casting techniques. Blending sculpture and design, Haupt is always looking for the underlying geometry in the chaos that is nature.  Utilizing ancient techniques of both lost wax and sand casting, the results yield magical, humorous, and elegant collectible works of art and design.
