welcome to our holiday issue!

IT’S usually around this time that we’re able to look back on the past 12 months and boast about the awards VISI has garnered, and this year I’m proud to say we won big! Ahead of our much-anticipated 100th issue, VISI was named the winner of the international A’ Design Award for Best Design Media in Italy. Nominated by designers, artists and architects from around the globe, it is a special recognition granted to leading design publications. What makes this award special is that it gets presented to a publication only once to acknowledge its role and support in the creation of a better world and its understanding of how good design leads to better products and services. Much of VISI’s design perspective was conceived by our former Art Director Anton…

ANNETTE KLINGER, WRITER Advice you’d give your younger self. Take fewer naps. Describe your perfect New Year’s Eve? Dancing to mid-nineties music at a wedding. Can someone please make this happen for me? The greatest compliment you ever received. My six-month-old daughter appreciating my juvenile sense of humour. What’s at the top of your gift list? At the moment it’s a toss-up between a scroll saw and a sewing machine. And at the bottom? Hand cream. No, man. The last place you visited for pleasure? Erf 81 in Tamboerskloof – to feed the resident goats and potbellied pig our kitchen scraps. What do you love about your home? My housemates, namely my husband, daughter and cat. Annette wrote about coutourier Kobus Dippenaar’s 50th birthday bash in Paternoster on page 96 and chef Luke Dale-Roberts’ new restaurant, Salsify, on…

looking back, moving forward

THE PLAYERS SUMARI KRIGE, OWNER OF LA GRANGE INTERIORS WHEN designing and sourcing new pieces, I am always drawing inspiration from the design masters and heroes of the past. However, I feel it is as important to consistently look forward, to push the bar, and create something fresh and new, be it in more simplified contemporary lines or in the materials used, like finding sustainable substitutes. Mixing old with new, classic design in modern finishes, it blends to give it a unique La Grange feel. lagranceinterioirs.co.za DIAN VAN ZYL, MARKETER-AT-LARGE, REBTEX EARLY colonists used a coarse floor covering made from coconut fibre, called coir, a combination of natural fibre, texture and originality. The new identity of sisal as natural carpet has the same effect, but without the coarseness. Above all, it is sustainable and durable.…

my house, my castle

My house is a castle, my castle is a house. It could quite literally be the most magnificent house in Cape Town, and I become awkward when people tell me so. This is because everyone knows the right response to a compliment is to deny it, but as much as I cannot deny it I also can’t necessarily accept it, as it is not my house. I live here like a woman-child keeping not only my father company but also the various beasts that wander in and out as if looking for nothing in particular. I’m not sure when I’m meant to leave home, but I know it won’t be easy given the magic held by this fortress of frayed silk curtains. The fact that my house has been in…
