Uvivu means laziness in Swahili. What some call lazy, here at Uvivu Studio, we call it slow living. Slow living isn’t about living at a snail’s pace. It’s about slowing down and giving yourself the time to make conscious decisions that positively impact your well-being and that of the planet.
Luckily, when it comes to home décor, we’ve done the conscious making decisions for you. From conceptual designs to finished products, our materials are eco-friendly and sourced from other small, local businesses. Each item is made individually by Andrew & Belinda from their apartment in Joburg. Andrew is the behind-the-scenes CAD designer and handyman. Belinda is the artist and brains of the operation.
All products are designed, casted and carefully finished by them and they pride themselves on each piece being completely unique in it’s aesthetic value.

We strive to be eco-friendly and zero-waste. Our packaging is often recycled or made up of recyclable materials to minimise our impact on the environment. Any left-over resin gets turned into small chips to make our terrazzo styled pieces.
We pride ourselves on finding the best, most environmentally friendly techniques and materials to work with while supporting other local manufacturers and suppliers.
