Profile picture of Craig van de Ruit


Bemu is a creative studio based in Harare Zimbabwe run by me; Craig van de Ruit. With a pre-university background in art, I later studied Industrial Design at Cape Peninsula University of Technology (an incredible opportunity that I will always be immensely grateful for). After university I started making custom furniture in Harare with brief stints as a production manager for a furniture manufacturer and later as a quantity surveyor and steel detailer for a steel structure manufacturing company in Harare. With this foundation I find my way back to design and art where I feel I belong. Here is a journal article on what the brand name bemu means to me. I offer a furniture design service, from brief through to engineering drawings. Besides art and design I love rock n roll and riding a dirt bike :)
