I'm Reynier van Zyl. I was born into a long lineage of artisans. Thanks to my father's skilled guidance as the owner and founder of national brand Eurokitchens, much of my childhood was spent designing and building projects. I have an innate love for working with wood and metal and have gained vast practical experience in old-world traditional methods of joinery craftsmanship.


Wood is a precious natural resource. All my wood comes from sustainable sources and I honour every piece I use by building products made to last.  

From  2014-2016 I cycled across Africa under the name 11th Emotion, inspired by our 11th chategorised feeling - which is the feeling of awe. Although my adventure is over, my time on the bike inspired me to pursue my passion in joinery full-time, where I hope to continue inspiring awe in others while creating livelihoods, beautiful work, breathtaking spaces and quality pieces. 

Whether it's a bespoke table from antique beams, a contemporary shelving unit or a unique piece of furniture, my skilled team and I can manufacture it for you from our workshop in Dieprivier.
