Our summer issue brightens stores in December, and as our last issue for 2021, it embraces the effervescent essence of the season.
We cover the Absa L'Atelier Awards, discussing the creative process and inspiration of L'Atelier's recently appointed ambassadors. This year's awards were the first to be held virtually and showcased work that investigated complex African socio-economic issues through various mediums.
Sergio Chinelli's Cliff House also features, a bold architectural project nestled in the garden route. Objekt©South Africa looks at the strength of the design supported by innovative and masterful engineering.
A little further afield, we take you into the Italian exhibition of architect Aldo Rossi's work, masterpieces and previously unseen sketches that have stood the test of time. Offering a glimpse into the life of French artist and pioneering designer Charlotte Perriand, we take a look at her relationship with her contemporaries and her influence on the modern furniture aesthetic.
Issue 34 marks Objekt©South Africa's first anniversary with publishers Hybrid Media Consulting. This year has seen the magazine grow into itself and embrace more content in the African landscape. This growth, accompanied by burgeoning demand for greater distribution, leads to a happy announcement – Objekt©South Africa will now be available in Woolworths stores across the country.
As a move to embrace our evolution, Objekt©South Africa's logo design has undergone a transformation to align with other worldwide editions of the magazine. Our cover concept is coming into its own, moving towards stylised cover designs focused on bold imagery.
