W O R L D B Y D E S I G N South Africa N HERE’S WHERE WORLD BY DESIGN MAY BE HEADING IN THE NEXT ISSUE: W Design a World Away B Y K A T I E T A N D Y S easoned travelers surely have a thumb tack or two on South Africa, one of the continent’s most touristed countries. Cities like Cape Town and Johannesburg attract throngs of visitors who hope to catch a glimpse of African culture through Kwaito music or rugby and cricket playing, or escape to nearby natural wonders like the Limpopo Game Reserve or Mpumalanga, “Paradise Country,” where safari tours give glances into the iconic wildlife of the region. Tourism is by no means new to South Africa, but the addition of high-design hotels is a phenomenon that has gained momentum. With the upcoming 2010 FIFA World Cup, there has been more demand for accommodations, and hoteliers are taking advantage of the world’s best designers. In this edition of WBD, we bring you into the action with a high-profile resort in Stellenbosch, a town in the Western Cape province of South Africa, resting on the banks of the Eerste River. Known for its rolling hills and surrounding mountains, the town is a picturesque setting for David Collins’ newly designed Delaire Graff Estate. About 30 miles west, Heath Nash is sweeping the art world of Cape Town with his repurposed products — anything from light frames to wire sculptures — that add a contemporary and untraditional South African character to any interior. Remember to check out our sidebar for other properties and designers to watch in the region. 52 • boutique DESIGN may/june 2010 > Out of Africa The Caribbean South Africa South America The Middle East Western Europe Eastern Europe Far East Australia Scandinavia North America India > > E > S
