the power of   3

Lovers of Lexus SUVs have spoken and Lexus has listened: The 2018 RX 350L and RX 450hL variants now have three rows to accommodate seven occupants. Retaining the model’s sleek features, Lexus has extended the body length by 110 mm at the rear and used a steeper tailgate window angle to ensure good headroom for passengers in the third row. The addition has not compromised the second row legroom either. Plus, at the touch of a button, the third-row seats fold completely flat freeing ample boot space. As well as comfort, such as the three-zone climate-control system so that passengers in the rear can adjust the temperature, safety remains a priority for Lexus. Airbags have been extended to the third row as well as an additional child-seat anchorage, making the Lexus RX-L…

welcome to our winter issue

As the dire drought in the Cape dragged on, I was convinced this was the year we were going to experience that elusive endless summer… But then, at the beginning of May, I took a road trip to Prince Albert with photographer Jan Ras to photograph Jonno Sherwin and Johan Hugo’s charming cottage. As we drove through De Doorns I noticed all the vines had turned a light shade of aubergine; at Matjiesfontein there was a distinct nip in the air; and the next morning before sunrise I was longing for my warm velvet coat that was, sadly, back in Cape Town. Winter has finally arrived here in the Western Cape, and with it our focus has shifted indoors. This issue is all about playing with scale. Here at VISI HQ we…

The two young creatives who gave their input are Gerard Strydom, interior designer at &Beyond under the wing of lodge-design wizard Chris Browne; and Karabo Poppy Moletsane, graphic designer, illustrator and street artist. • andbeyond.com • behance.net/karabo_poppy BEDROOMS GERARD: “I love minimalist design – uncluttered and devoid of colour. Here, I like the beautiful white bed with space and flow beneath it; the asymmetry of the nest of tables; and, since I love to read, the chair and modern standing lamp. I like how I look in this room: understated and elegant.” KARABO: “This room speaks to the illustrator in me. I love the use of the light boxes, the concrete finish and the unconventional decor.” LOUNGES GERARD: “This is the kind of room you want to show off to your friends. I appreciate the clean,…

there goes the neighbourhood

THIS HOUSE HAS GROWN UP WITH MY FAMILY OVER THE PAST 18 YEARS. IF THESE WALLS COULD TALK, THEY’D BE SQUEALING. I don’t think they were properly prepared for the pre-adolescents that invaded their space back in 2000, along with the 18-year-old preparing herself for varsity, accompanied by two parents working full time and a dog with the character of a black Lassie. (She really was black – a crossbreed Alsatian/Rottweiler whom we named Onyx). We were the second black family to move into the neighbourhood at the time, and there was a definite air of“There goes the neighbourhood” when the moving trucks pulled into what still is our driveway. We were excited, my brother, sister and I: We were each going to have our own bedroom for the first time.…
