“We create beautiful decor while still being kind to nature”
From her studio at the foot of Table Mountain in Cape Town, Joanna Orr of Head On Design creates striking wall-mounted African animal heads, all of which exude an Afro-chic elegance. A graceful take on traditional hunting trophies, they serve to celebrate our wildlife, but without the bloodshed. Each head is carefully designed and crafted from specially cut pieces of natural, sustainable materials such as bamboo, birch ply or board made from recycled paper.
The sculptures come flat-packed with easy-to-follow picture instructions. Pieces fit together to create the 3D form, no glue is required, all you need is a nail in the wall.
Joanna also collaborates with Cape Town artists, including Sharon Boonzaier, to create animal heads with beautiful artistic prints that are typically embracing of Southern African trends, and inspired by our natural heritage in the Cape.
Another printed range includes an exploration of fun local African Shweshwe prints and patterns.
“We’re cheeky but still serious about the environment”
Needing to preserve our African wildlife, Head On Design has donated to various organisations over the years to help save our magnificent rhino, elephant and lion populations.
