Hino Studio Debuts First Furniture And Accessories Collection
Updated: May 8
Miami-based interior design firm, Hino Studio, debuts a collectible design furniture and accessory collection, inspired by South Africa.
Founded in Miami in 2000 by Carola Hinojosa, Hino Studio is now run by her daughter Sabrina MacLean. Carola relocated and eventually retired in South Africa after she found herself locked down on a game farm during the Covid-19 pandemic. “During that year, which I spent exploring the land and building relationships with its people, I discovered the beauty and charm of this serene country, and decided to retire in Capetown, which is a magical city with magnificent scenery ranging from mountains, beaches, forests, and wine country. What could be better! It was one of the best opportunities that was given to me during my entire life. For the African Accessories collection, I wanted to represent the local craftsman’s savoir faire, and give back as these skilled workers do not have access to international opportunities. Thus, I designed several pieces inspired by the Zulu people. They are the single largest ethnic group in South Africa, recognized for their strong personalities and indestructible fighting spirit, but also for the joy and love they showed me. Hence, why I called the nesting tables the tribal tables.” - Carola Hinojosa
