Here at Gather Co we want to ensure that the gap between your screen and our surfaces is bridged. As such, we have developed this Texture Guide to provide a general understanding of the finishes across our collection and to offer a sense of the ‘feel’ you can expect from each variety.
*Please note: This is intended as a guide only. Some surfaces may sit outside the prescribed finish as stated below. It is not a Slip Rating, you’ll find that in the “Resources and Installation” section at the bottom of each product page.

Finish: Concrete - Grey
With its clean curvaceous lines and immaculate finishes, the Soma planters have become an iconic part of the Indigenus range. Inspired by the ‘anchoring presence’ of trees combined with the designer’s distinctive rounded sculptural style the Soma planters create a powerful impact on any landscape or interior. The Soma design celebrates the stone-like appearance of reinforced concrete and in various progressions of the design contrasts with organic elements in wood and cork.
The Soma collection, the first collection van Heerden did for Indigenus, is an extremely versatile range. The planters can act like pillars punctuating a long vista or provide a shapely antidote to the rigid lines of architecture. They are perfect for solo placement on the ground, in a corner, or on a raised surface and are particularly effective assembled in varying heights.
Laurie Wiid van Heerden creates products and objects that can be seen as the interface between art and design – where materials are transformed into life-enriching durable products. With an extensive portfolio of work for such a young designer van Heerden has won many accolades and has exhibited at Guild, 100% Design, Design Days Dubai, Design Miami and Design Basel.
INDIGENUS is coming.
South Africa - A land of incredible diversity, the rugged charm of South Africa is breathtaking. Encompassing a superb infuse of cultures, religions and languages - this region has evolved over generations to develop design techniques like no other. A wonderful collision of competing influences present the perfect combination of raw beauty and refined perfection.
Glass-Reinforced Concrete - GRC is a special mix where ordinary cement is enriched with not only aggregate but glass fibres too. This combination serves a similar purpose to steel rebar but, is not susceptible to rust. It’s popularity amongst the design community has grown exponentially in recent years due to its ability to be formed into virtually any size, shape and profile.
