Li Edelkoort recently published an article entitled North meets South. It perfectly describes the new contemporary style that is emerging from the Southern most tip of Africa. One great example of this is Deep Dark Africa, a newly launched online shop that curates some of the top emerging local designers.

The online shop features items like vases made from discarded wine bottles, printed cushions and tea towels from local Capetonian Skinny Laminx, and mini scooters made out of tin. It showcases some of the best handmade, upcycled, modern and stylish designs from South Africa.
