we’re coming at you from two angles in this issue. Both are part of a thread resonating around the globe as, perhaps for the first time in human history, we are all genuinely thinking about our future on this planet. The notion that unless we change things, we might not actually have a future has moved from fringe activism to the collective zeitgeist. It’s even moved into our second bedroom. I have a very woke teenage daughter. So, as both a nod to key design and architectural trends, and an attempt at some hard-to-come-by Dad Points, issueVISI 106 looks at: SMALL SPACES Along with the fact that owning property has become less and less affordable in major urban areas, there’s been a conscious move to making do with less. Small spaces…

PIETER MATHEWS, ARCHITECT, DESIGNER, CURATOR, STUDENT AND RACONTEUR What is your favourite piece of design of the 21st century so far, and why? The Glass Tea House Mondrian, created for the Venice Architecture Biennale 2014 by Hiroshi Sugimoto. It is pure architecture – an experiment with pavilion typology that fuses Western and Eastern cultures with sculpture and even elements of jewellery design. Maybe last year’s World Rugby Cup or this year’s Olympics have led to my current affinity with the Zen aesthetic! As part of our VISIon section, Pieter shares travel tips for Dutch Design Week on page 56. ROLI O’TSEMAYE, WRITER, ART CRITIC AND CURATOR What is your favourite piece of design of the 21st century so far, and why? Ethnik by Tunde Owolabi: these are designs inspired by hand-woven aso oke fabric…

joy from africa to the world

The V&A Waterfront reimagined the 2019/20 festive season as a celebration of local talent and environmental sustainability. Centred on the theme of “Joy from Africa to the World”, the V&A presented an experience aligned to its purpose of creating the world’s most inspiring waterfront neighbourhood. Every decoration on display was handcrafted by African artisans using recycled and recyclable materials. A team, with the help of Platform Creative Agency’s Cathy O’Clery and Laurence Brick, mixed modern and traditional pieces to create a rich display of the many intricate crafting techniques handed down from generation to generation. As a result, every cent of the Waterfront’s R16-million investment in the festive décor went back into African economies. INSPIRING THE WORLD “As neighbourhood custodians, we wanted to create and curate a space that looks after the interests…

Down here at the tip of Africa, exotic Miami may be better known for a pair of good-looking detectives who drove fast cars and rolled up their jacket sleeves (and Doc Doc Doc Doc Doctor Beat, obviously) but it’s also home to the annual Design Miami/. Hosted by Lexus, the design fair’s official automotive partner, we attended the 15th edition of this influential design week, located behind Miami South Beach’s wonderful Art Deco-adorned beachfront and held in conjunction with Art Basel art fair across the boulevard. And yes, the latter was the geocentre of the $120 000 banana conceptual art drama that saw said fruit subsequently eaten by another artist. Google it… it’s worth the read. Design Miami/ though, which involved gallerists and designers showcasing anything from 19th-century pieces to contemporary…
