Our Story

STRUKTUR

FOUNDER | CO-OWNER

Yolande Rautenbach

One may describe my day-job, that of being an accountant, not specifically inspiring and innovative. Although my career as an accountant serves a purpose it has never fulfilled the hunger to be innovative, to think outside of the box and to dream . . . not only for my personal projects but beyond that.

Struktur was established to fulfil a dream, to share inspiration with others and to create beauty through simplistic, timeless and practical concepts. As someone with an entrepreneurial spirit, the boundaries of a corporate environment have never appealed to me. Through Struktur I have been enabled to create, inspire and live my passion.

PASSION

FOLLOW YOUR DREAMS

Purpose Driven

Struktur allows me to give back to the community through job creation. Our furniture is all hand crafted by members of the community who previously were dependent on casual job opportunities. Struktur has given them the opportunity to have a sustainable income stream to support them and their families.

Quality products is what you can expect from us. This is a non- negotiable and engrained in the workmanship. The beauty of our products will have your friends talking and you will indulge in the comfort of the products.

Some may think that establishing a high-end furniture company in the midst of the worst pandemic of modern times may be ludicrous – but I believe that Covid-19 has given me the motivation and clarity of mind to conceptualise a vision, to follow my dream and to not be afraid. With unwavering faith, all is possible.

I am ultimately mother of two, Liam and Mila, and have always encouraged them to follow their dreams, to not give up and to believe in themselves – core concepts that will underpin the success of Struktur.
