HOLIDAYS… They will forever remind me of Scottburgh. And Benoni. Scottburgh, on KZN’s South Coast, was about the Blue Marlin – the quintessential South Coast family hotel, back then it was all kinds of faded ’50s glory with huge mealtime buffets and tons of organised activities for the kids. Most of these involved the big hotel pool … which was also the focal point of Decembers in Benoni. During the school holidays, I’d travel up there from Cape Town to see my dad. Like those described by our columnists this month, they were days spent at the pool, either with mates, swimming in it, or – suddenly with no mates around – cleaning it. Smith the Elder did not believe in those newfangled Kreepy Kraulies. Swimming pools, as you’ll notice, are also…

NAFISA AKABOR, TECH JOURNALIST Describe your perfect summer’s day. “I’d be holidaying on an exclusive private island in the Philippines – listed on Airbnb – where all my meals are prepared by a cook. My morning will include short boat trips to other villages, then relaxing on a private beach with a book, followed by a late-afternoon massage.” Just in time to stream your summer soundtrack, Nafisa reviews the Beosound Stage, Bang & Olufsen’s beautifully designed all-in-one speaker system, on page 174. MARTIN JACOBS, CREATIVE DIRECTOR, STYLIST AND CONTENT CREATOR Describe your perfect summer’s day. “Nothing beats an Italian summer, so it would be a day spent on the Amalfi Coast’s photo-op island of Capri.

“I AM DIVIDED BY TWO OPPOSITE WAYS OF THINKING: SUPER MODERNISM AND PAST DESIGNS.”– FRANCESCO ROTA RIPPLE EFFECT Wave is a contemporary outdoor chaise longue sunbed designed by Francesco Rota for Paola Lenti. Hand-woven with rope cord, its adjustable backrest can be set to two positions. Available locally from Il Lusso. paolalenti.it/en | illusso.co.za PORSCHE PROFILE “The 356 is a collection of outdoor furniture inspired by the sinuous and elegant curves of the first Porsche 356 made in the 1940s and 1950s, which bestow ergonomics and comfort on the product,” says José Antonio Gandía-Blasco Canales, who designed the 356 chaise longue with Pablo Gironés.

For all its Victorian-cottage charm, the architectural landscape of the Mother City suburb of Observatory has a fairly desaturated palette. Lately, however, the Streetopia festival – an initiative by AfrikaBurn, which involves the Observatory Improvement District and a host of NGOs and artists – has brightened up the ’hood. The latest addition is a modernist mural emblazoned on the walls of the Cape Town & District Association for the Hearing Impaired. “It’s the first and last thing you see when you go over the bridge into or leaving Obs,” says its creator, artist and architect Lorenzo Nassimbeni. To involve the community connected to the site, Lorenzo conducted a creative workshop with 12 art students aged 10 to 12 from the Mary Kihn School for the Deaf. Inspired by the late Dutch architect…
