Our story

Founded in 2020 by Itumeleng Makgakga, Terracotta Cells is a Johannesburg

based interior design and art brand. Our purpose at Terracotta Cells is to tell new stories through interior spaces with a fresh minimal detailed design approach. Along with an offer of considered unique product design elements to order online.

At Terracotta Cells, we see design as the canvas where art meets the essence of human connection and the raw beauty of the Earth’s elements. Drawing inspiration from the intricate beauty of human cells, our brand is a celebration of the boundless creativity found in the world around us. Our motto, ‘We design spaces that reflect all parts of you,’ encapsulates our philosophy. Each creation mirrors the harmony found in the cells within our own bodies, as we extract elements from the natural world to craft innovative, sustainable, and breathtaking ideas.

Terracotta Cells is more than an interior design company; it’s a commitment to designing spaces that resonate with the essence of individuals, reflecting the organic connection between humans, design, and the Earth.
