MCM Furniture Designers & Makers
(A work in progress...)
Frystark, South Africa
Frystark furniture is renowned for its beautiful shape and high-quality manufacturing with a strongly influenced by Mid-Century Modern Danish and European design.
“In 1948 two brothers, Derek & Owen Frye, started their furniture manufacturing business. The business grew and in 1959 it acquired country-wide distribution through its merger with G.H. Starck Itd. of Cape Town and their furniture factory in Ndabeni. Known as D and O Frye, Starck & co. Itd. - shortened for easy reference to the Frystark Group. Frystark was taken over by A.F.C.O.L (Associated Furniture Companies Limited) in 1968 which effectively ended the era of classic Mid Century Modern Frystark furniture in favor of the more conservative Unita ranges.
