Elle Decoration (South Africa) - - NEWS -

Zulu Mod­ernist de­signer Si­fiso Shange is mak­ing a name for him­self on the lo­cal scene with beau­ti­ful be­spoke fur­ni­ture that com­bines mod­ern de­sign with tra­di­tional African nar­ra­tives of love, cel­e­bra­tion, pride, to­geth­er­ness, cul­ture and tra­di­tion. Since found­ing his com­pany Afri Mod­ern in 2016, the young cre­ative has grown from strength to strength, with his Mahlangu Hon­orary Trib­ute server (above) be­ing shown at 100% De­sign ear­lier this year. As the name sug­gests, the server is a spe­cial trib­ute to Dr Es­ther Mahlangu’s work as a tra­di­tional and con­tem­po­rary Nde­bele artist. Other pieces by Shange in­clude the Nja Yami side-ta­ble, the Muhle Muhle cof­fee ta­ble and server, and the Mina Nawe Ntombi and Nsizwa side-ta­bles (left). sifiso_s, @af­rimod­ern
