Minenhle Zazi Cira

Durban-based industrial designer.

Minenhle Zazi Cira’s work is inspired by African culture and art. His company, CLAN, focuses on interior design, where Cira and his co-founders produce products that represent love, peace, unity and equality.

“This company has one main aim and that is to make people's lives better and make the world look good,” explains Cira.

Cira's most successful project to date is IVOVO/IHLUZO, a chair he designed for the Elle Decoration Izitulo challenge. From this, his work was featured on their site and he began to build a name for himself.

He is currently a student at the Durban University of Technology where he is completing his second-year course in Interior design.
