from the editor

Earlier this year I was asked to judge at 100% Design SA, an invitation I accepted on the spot. The showcase has always been a calendar highlight, and getting to sit front and centre as many of the top emerging designers debut their work was an opportunity this editor was not going to pass up. Make no mistake, it’s frantic and frenetic and at times chaotic but it’s almost impossible not to get caught up in the thrill of it all; the possibilities, the insights and the energy of tomorrow’s design leaders. One thing that was unmistakably clear: the industry has never been more collaborative. Thabiso Mjo and Mpho Vackier – Mash. T Design Studio and The Urbanative, respectively – defined that, redirecting the idea of design as not so much…

watch the throne

The Makers Sifiso Shange Afri Modern Sifiso Shange is promoting a proudly individual African identity. Through design, he tells the story of who he is and where he’s come from. ‘Design represents freedom to me. It represents the powerful act of having a positive, creative voice and being able to share my experiences through it,’ he says. It’s kudos to this philosophy that saw him named Best New Talent at 100% Design SA earlier this year. ‘I’m inspired by how unique we are, but also connected’ Sifiso’s overarching themes in the pieces under his Afri Modern lifestyle banner are storytelling and love. ‘The story is the heart and soul of my furniture,’ he says. He uses the medium of modern storytelling to share traditional stories from his culture – via ideals that range from Izindaba…

feeling scene

The close-up will always have its place in showing moments and emotions of the human experience, but a zoomed-out perspective allows a single image to make a compelling argument. In Unequal Scenes, the series of photos that made waves around the world when they appeared on the cover of Time in May this year, photographer Johnny Miller caught and held the attention of those on both sides of the ‘privilege’ argument. Seen from a drone, the homes and swimming pools of Johannesburg’s sprawling suburbs allowed no room for argument when seen beside the much littler plots in a neighbouring township. Exceptions aside, some divisions remained as tangible as they had been during apartheid. ‘My intention with Desire Paths is to reveal the pathways that humans use when there isn’t a city…

against the grain

The Americans just don’t get it, this wood. You’ll see these bundles, how neat and tidy they’ve cut them into these little planks, all to one length so that they can grade them. The French, they say, “you buy the tree, we’ll rough saw it and reassemble it, and you do what you want with it” – and that’s what we do with our yellowwood here, too. We work mostly with French Oak, some Ash and the remainder is what is dictated by fashion.’ When Pierre Cronje speaks about his craft, even something as simple as the sawing of a tree into planks, he captivates like a lumber mill Anthony Hopkins. To set foot into his sprawling Cape Town workshop is to enter a cathedral of carpentry, where hooded monks are…

wild at heart

So have you always been into plants? What influence did spending half your childhood in Durban surrounded by a verdant plant world have on your current urban jungling habit? It took me a while to realise my clean-lined decor aesthetic, juxtaposed with curating my overgrown urban junglery, speaks to my yearning to incorporate the comforting yet unbridled aesthetic of KwaZulu-Natal in my now Cape Town-based home. Did a childhood memory seal your fate as a plant parent? For me, plants were a beautiful way to escape reality. As a child, standing under their tall trunks and wide umbrella-like leaves felt like being transported to an Amazonian reality, where no grown-ups lived. This was a place that belonged to kids only; where we could be creative, dream and be close to nature.…
