DE­SIGN OF THE TIMES

House and Leisure (South Africa) - - View -

For de­sign lovers, May is all about De­sign Joburg fea­tur­ing Rooms on View. In its sec­ond year, this event is shap­ing up to be even more ex­cit­ing than the in­au­gu­ral edi­tion in 2017.

House and Leisure is the me­dia spon­sor of one of the in­no­va­tive CoLab stands, which ex­hibits work by rising de­sign star Tshepo Sealetsa (pic­tured, left) in col­lab­o­ra­tion with ar­chi­tect and de­signer Joe van Rooyen of JVR Ar­chi­tects & De­sign (pic­tured, right) and decor maven Mavro­mac & Gate­house. Sealetsa needs lit­tle in­tro­duc­tion to

House and Leisure read­ers: not only was he one half of the duo – he worked with artist Banele Khoza – men­tored by ed­i­tor Ti­aan Nagel last year for SABC3’s Win A Home com­pe­ti­tion, but the gor­geous in­te­rior-de­sign re­sults of their efforts were also fea­tured in our

Be­fore & Af­ter is­sue early this year. The stand is set to be spec­tac­u­lar, with a four-me­tre ‘silo’ struc­ture en­cir­cled by lux­u­ri­ous linen drops and book­ended by a pair of room­sized cubes. Each will be filled with care­fully se­lected fur­ni­ture pieces, light­ing and fabrics from Mavro­mac & Gate­house, a com­pany well known for its beau­ti­fully de­signed fur­ni­ture and ac­ces­sories, as well as its spec­trum of luxe fabrics and wall­cov­er­ings.

Be­ing re­vealed for the first time here is the new Mavro­mac & Gate­house out­door fur­ni­ture col­lec­tion. Joe van Rooyen and Han­neke Swart of Mavro­mac & Gate­house teamed up to pro­duce this covetable new line, which is destined to be a high­light of the week­end. Subscribe to House

and Leisure at the show and you’ll stand a chance to take home one of their con­tem­po­rary out­door rock­ing chairs, or you can en­ter a gen­eral com­pe­ti­tion to win a va­ri­ety of these gor­geous fur­ni­ture pieces.

The 2018 CoLab project is brought to visi­tors in con­junc­tion with paint brand Fired Earth, and each de­signer will de­vise a sig­na­ture paint colour for use within their CoLab stand. Event pa­trons can pur­chase their pre­ferred paint shades on the spot from the Fired Earth re­tail point. Af­ter the show, the range will be avail­able at Builders Ware­house and Builders Ex­press stores across the coun­try.

CoLab de­sign­ers and ar­chi­tects also in­clude stel­lar cre­atives such as Liam Mooney, Heather Boting, Buzwe Mabuza and Don­ald Nx­u­malo. As on the House and Leisure

spon­sored stand, more es­tab­lished de­sign­ers will serve as men­tors to an ex­cit­ing ar­ray of young de­sign tal­ents in­clud­ing Praveen Dinna and Jadene Naidoo, Ja­co­l­ine Sema and Tuami Zulu.
