March 2014 diary
The sun's scorching rays become a gentle kiss, mornings bear a slight chill and we snuggle a bit longer under the covers, but no need to become a homebody just yet. March is packed with art shows, designer pop-ups, trend talks, mushroom hunts and more!
Picks of the Week: Indaba, Art Fair & Guild edition
Last weekend, design was on steroids in Cape Town with Design Indaba, Cape Town Art Fair and the Guild Design Fair running concurrently - not to mention us being World Design Capital 2014 and all. Here are our favourites.
Design Indaba in 11 espressos
Following an epic Design Indaba Conference we just had to share our 11 favourite design and architectural solutions that will change the way you look at things – think of it as three-days distilled into an espresso!
Fixie fantasia at Guild
Africa's first international design fair, Guild runs until Sunday 9 March in Cape Town. Make sure to get down there and be part of history in the making. For one thing, there's the most desirable bicycle in South Africa on show.
The renovated Scandi-Victorian home of Luke and Jen Pedersen, in Woodstock, Cape Town, is a true labour of love. The result of their shared vision is an oasis of contemporary comfort befitting a designer and an artist... and a whole lot of bicycles!
Debbie does Design Indaba
