5 Creatives Each Design a Joburg-Inspired Space
In our December issue – #HLMyJoburg – we celebrate the City of Gold. To find about about the latest decor and design trends on the Joburg scene, we asked five creatives to design a curated space inspired by the city.
Donald Nxumalo, Mia Widlake and Debbie Votin, Thabisa Mjo, Ella Buter, and Mumtaz Dasoo explain their curations in the video below. (For product info pick up our December issue.)
Award-winning creative director Thabisa Mjo of Mash.T Design Studio honours the City of Gold’s roots and history in contemporary graphic forms juxtaposed with punchy tangerine and a pinch of cinnamon.
Accomplished design visionary Mumtaz Dasoo celebrates the city’s hedonistic proclivities with luxe black on black: dramatic, tactile basics layered with inky details and refined brass accents.
For interiors experts Mia Widlake (left) and Debbie Votin (right) of Studio19, Joburg constitutes a dynamic metropolis brimming with potential. Their vision employs organic lines and boldly textural elements with solid pieces in terracotta and brick red.
Founder of the label Superella, inimitable fashion designer Ella Buter channels her Jozi confidence – and her collector’s heart – in a symphony of objets in cheerful yellow, amber and silver tones.
To create a look that embodied urban sophistication, skilled interior designer Donald Nxumalo opted for a polished, modern black-and-white scheme anchored by clean lines and considered juxtapositions of pattern.
