At last, the week of the Design Indaba has rolled around, and from Wednesday to the weekend, this is the event that's filling up my diary.
Highlights for me include Ferran Adrià of elBulli, the world's best restaurant. Then, of course, there's Dai Fujiwara - creative director of Issey Miyake. He's someone I know of because of his intriguing A-Poc series of designs, and I'm interested to learn more.
Other highlights include locally born car designer, Keith Helfet, furniture designers Patricia Urquiola (that's her Tropicalia chair above) and Barber Osgerby, and also designer Marian Bantjes.(that's one of her designs below).
There's lots, lots more, and I'll be keeping you filled in on just what's happening at Design Indaba 2009. See you there!
