AFTER the enormous success of our bumper VISI 100 edition, it feels a little odd to produce our regular-size 192-page magazine again! But we have enjoyed creating a very inspiring Issue 101 for you to delve into somewhere cosy as the seasons change. Can you believe it’s April already and we’re two months into the Year of the Pig? Before we know it, it will be our Design Issue 2020, full of more amazing talent and surprises. We can’t wait for what’s to come. Enjoy!

SHAWN SLOVO, SCREENWRITER This is VISI’s 101st issue. If you were to live to 101, what do you hope will have been invented by then? A deep-tissue robot masseuse. I’d never have to leave the house. Quoting Marie Kondo, tell us about a treasured possession that sparks joy? I would be very sorry to lose my modest Elsa Peretti diamond on a platinum chain, mainly because it is the only piece of jewellery I own. Describe a typical day in your life… Walk the dog. Write. Swim. Write. Cook. A good book, a great TV series. A tonne of sleep. If you were to suggest an object or artwork to go into a time capsule, what would it be?

META SIDE TABLE Greg: “We launched this table at 100% Design in 2016. I love the fact that you can see that it is hand-made. The imperfections in the brass construction add to its beauty.” Philippe: “A simple extruded form playing a game between classical beauty and rich materials.” HG DRINKS UNIT Philippe: “This piece sums up our approach to design: simplicity of form combined with a sensual use of material.” Greg: “The combination of gloss lacquer paint and aged brass is timeless, and the asymmetry of the doors adds an unexpected quirk.” FADE TO GREY TABLE Greg: “I love the way the ombré mirrored panels trick the eye. This piece commands attention.” Philippe: “Designed for the Colour Fields show at Southern Guild, it’s an extravagant piece, simple in form but lush with reflective and patinated surfaces.” FACADE UNIT Philippe:…
