Our greatest challenge to date: a collaboration with Mercedes-Benz.
South African designer Katie Thompson recycles used everyday items into sophisticated interior objects. Her latest piece de resistance: An entire study based on the individual parts of a Mercedes-Benz SL.
We met Jack and James, editor and photographer, from Eigen Huis & Interieur – a dutch interior magazine in Feb 2012. They visited our studio in the midst of their busy Design Indaba Schedule. We suspected they were up to something great but never dreamt anything as fantastic as this SA design special! Of course it’s all in Dutch so we have absolutely no idea what it says, but oh we can imagine!
