WIID AND CERAMIC MATTERS

The stellar collaboration between furniture designer Laurie Wiid van Heerden and the Ceramic Matters duo produced a number of outstanding releases at the show, two of which we’ve flagged.

We were drawn to the Tall Neck Vases for their elegant and delightfully expressive shape. The duo’s ceramic side table is another showstopper, featuring Wiid’s intelligent design work and Ceramic Matters’ eye-catching marbled ceramic tiles.

Wendy and Jennifer’s latest mirror collection Death Becomes Her features this Series 1 mirror, with its hefty angular granite base and round mirror. We love how incongruous the two are and how the design duo challenges tradition.

Mpho Vackier’s Makeba Side Table and Light is a clever furniture combo with a nod to the sculptural elements of African hairstyles. Woven with rope and topped with marble it’s a multifunctional piece with a uniquely African flavour.
