Bloc Outdoor started in 2011, in Cape Town, South Africa. Founded by Jacques Drake because of his passion for timber, the outdoors and design. Jacques realized that there was a demand for exclusive quality outdoor timber furniture which could perform in the harsh African climate. Imports were available but nobody was producing anything locally.

After careful consideration, he started designing the Bloc Range. Thus, birthed the beautiful ranges which are known for their minimalistic classic lines, a practical edge and locally made. Jacques experience in the timber construction industry for years gave him the advantageous knowledge and understanding of timber, and how it behaves in South African weather conditions. Its first Showroom opened in May 2011 in Woodstock, Cape Town. Since then the company has grown by supplying the local and international market with their products. Due to its success with many installations and satisfied clientele it opened it 2nd Showroom in September 2016 in Kramerville, Sandton, Johannesburg and soon more will follow.

The companies vision is to partner and to collaborate with local suppliers to design and to produce the highest quality outdoor furniture South Africa has to offer. Its success is due to all the staff and clientele which have supported them over the past years.
