celebrate our 100th issue with us

SJOE! 100 issues and counting… What a pleasure and memorable adventure it has been to put together the biggest-ever issue of VISI. Since 2001, I have been fortunate to work on this very special magazine alongside some of the most inspiring and talented people in South Africa. Every one of us here at VISI has always pulled out all the stops to delight and surprise you, our loyal followers in print and online, and has gone all out to nurture this important local love-brand. Thank you to all who have let us into their homes over the years, and all the super-talented architects, artists, crafters and designers who have shared their work with us. For me, André Eksteen of Earthworld Architects sums it up best: “VISI defined a whole new approach. For the first…

finders keepers

MY BLENDER, MY PERSONAL CHEF VISI deputy editor Annemarie Meintjes “THE SKY IS THE LIMIT WHEN THERE’S A SMEG BLENDER IN YOUR KITCHEN ARSENAL.” LET THERE BE (STREET) LIGHT Architect Mokena Makeka “WELCOME TO MY MIND.” HYBRID DESIGN Designer-maker Joe Paine “THE WRAP BUREAU WAS DESIGNED TO OFFER A SMALL PERSONAL SPACE FOR WORKING ON A LAPTOP. The ceramic vessels can be used to hold plants, stationery or the severed heads of people who got up in your face while you were doing your tax returns.” TRAVEL IN STYLE The Fox Browne Creative team Chris Browne and Debra Fox “I LOVE COMPARTMENTS AND POCKETS, BUT THESE ARE ALL BLACK!

a bright future

AHEAD of her seminar in Joburg on 25 February and in Cape Town on 2 March, renowned Paris- and New York-based trend forecaster Li Edelkoort gave VISI insight into what to expect from colour palettes, textiles and smart tech.

This taste for colour is just beginning and will grow in the next decade, influencing consumers to become happier. People’s innate fear of using colour is…

life and death at the chelsea hotel

THE friend who showed me the Chelsea Hotel killed himself three months later. A month after that the Chelsea was taken over by developers, and its 70-plus years of bohemian excess and wonder were over. Inadvertently, I’d managed to see an iconic building, one that had always figured large on my list of artistic landmarks, just before its essence was forever destroyed. The friend who took me around the hotel in 2011 was Mark Kramer. He’d been my friend for 15 years, yet this was only the second time I’d met him in person. As with the Chelsea Hotel itself, blind luck had prompted me to visit him just before his life also ended. Mark was the embodiment of American openness, and especially of New York. We’d become friends when, randomly, I had…
