About BRAK

Brak Furniture is a local, Joburg-based, furniture design and manufacturing company. Owned by Father and son team Wolfgang (Snr) and Wolfgang (Jnr) Müller, all pieces are designed and hand manufactured by them in their workshop.

Wolfgang (Snr), who grew up in Switzerland and moved to Johannesburg after he finished his apprenticeship, has been making furniture, shopfitting and custom-building kitchens for over 40 years. His son, Wolfgang, a South African is the designer of the team. Inspired by 70’s Africana Retro and mid-century modern design, they like to give the pieces a fun and playful twist with Brak’s signature bold combination of colour and wood.

Brak not only designs and manufactures furniture, but also custom builds kitchens, BICs and any other custom-made pieces. Please contact Wolfgang (Jnr) if you have a custom-made piece you would like to discuss.


 

THE STORY BEHIND BRAK:
Brak was started by Wolfgang Jnr and his girlfriend Zoë Laband in 2010 as a passion project. Needing furniture for a new flat, and having a very limited budget, they began to up-cycle retro Africana pieces that they picked up in junk shops. It proved to be so much fun that they continued to find pieces and up-cycle them, and soon they had accumulated so many pieces that they opened up a stall at Market On Main.

Demand grew and they joined forces with Wolf's dad - an expert and experienced craftsman - to start designing and manufactoring their own pieces. Brak is a true family business that combines the energy and ideas of youth with the skill and expertise of experience.
