Design in all its states

Design in all its states

World Design Capital in 2014, Cape Town continues to churn out design and laud creativity.

Stable is a den of design projects, where the best is on display. Opened in 2013, this store has close to 115 local brands that create everything from furniture to fashion accessories. You'll find bamboo school bags by Indalo Decor or coffee tables by Aiden Bennetts, who founded the project.

Also in the Woodstock neighbourhood, the studio and showroom of Haldane Martin, the top South African designer, is definitely worth checking out. His serpentine couch Songololo is a beautiful invitation to nap.

Next, head to the Woodstock Foundry in talented south African architect John Vogel's refined gallery for a trip to a different furniture universe, where the all-wood designs are made by hand.
