Albert Potgieter

My name is Albert Potgieter. I am a product and furniture designer and maker living in Rotterdam, Netherlands. I am originally from South Africa with a background in Physiotherapy, but started my own furniture art designing business in 2017 that specializes in custom handmade wooden designs.

I became a designer because of a dream, to use my business to get people off the streets or people that need a second chance, into the workshop to teach and mentor them and give them a new beginning and purpose. I want to use Art and Design to help others.
Bench by Albert Potgieter

Optique Bench by Albert Potgieter The Optique bench was designed to be a functional art piece. The focus of this design lies in its visual aspect, hence the name, Optique. Being designed in Africa, it carries some of the properties of nature and wildness. It captures the attention as it gives the impression of movement and being alive. The Optique Bench is made out of many separate pieces of solid wood which gets cut, sanded, prepared, oiled and then glued together and like a puzzle gets built up into a solid furniture piece.
