yay, it’s Friday and time for another design installment from last weeks Design Indaba 2013 expo. A company which totally caught my eye was Milkshed, a new furniture manufacturer with a whole lot of heart. Milkshed cares about wood and all their products are made from reclaimed pieces which are transformed into something special, utterly unique. The part which is truly special is that every cent of profit is channeled into doing good…ranging from fixing up a school or helping out a rural hospice. It’s about small changes that have a big impact.
The much-loved Cape Town store, Quirky.Me, was possibly the brightest and happiest stand at the expo…cool and kooky things are the order of the day at Quirky.Me, and owner Ingrid shared their new product, a practical but super cool ladder manufactured by Pedersen + Lennard.
