Being married to a South African guy I'm a regular visitor to Cape Town and have long been impressed and inspired by the creativity of the place. So to me, it is no surprise that Cape Town is the designated Design Capital for 2014, as the place is absolutely buzzing!
As Skandivis is all about living the Scandinavian way,I'm never more excited than when I find Scandinavian influences in unusual places. My latest find is the creative hub the Woodstock Exchange located in Cape Town. Apart from housing my favorite Scandi/African brand: Pedersen & Lennard, it's also home to some of the most amazing cafes and workshops in Cape Town right now!
The design partnership Pedersen & Lennard sells hand-made as well as machine-made products that have all been put together in their Cape Town workshop. Their range is influenced by their fascination with South African craft and the clean aesthetic of their Scandinavian forefathers. Below are some of my favorite products from their current collection.
