Academy Alumnus in the running for Most Beautiful Object In South Africa


Such amazing news! One of our ex students, Wikus de Wet, has been nominated for the Most Beautiful Object In South Africa (MBOISA) along with his collaborators on the Twenty Journey project, Sipho Mpongo and Sean Metelerkamp. MBOISA is run by Design Indaba and aims to identify beautiful objects that South Africans are producing, you can learn more about it here. It's great too, to see that this is extending further into projects such as this, which raise some really interesting questions about where South Africa currently is and where it is heading.

To see the other nominees for MBOISA you can look at the long list here and don't forget to vote!

To look back on an earlier post we did on Wikus's work with Twenty Journey, you can have a look right over here.

Good luck Wikus, we are so proud!
