Word On The Street

Blu Streak

Paying homage to its location in an iconic Cape Town building, the new Radisson Blu Hotel & Residence in Riebeek Street (floors up to 11 are hotel rooms and 12 to 23 are residential) is an ode to Art Deco with a cool, contemporary twist. Its motifs and palette are influenced by the Mother City’s notoriously moody weather – Atlantic blue, gold and grey – making it an incredibly sophisticated and unique addition to the hospitality scene, despite belonging to a global hotel chain. The divine Ghibli Bar and adjoining pool deck are conservatory inspired – lots of tropical prints and planters – while the Stratus Room (breakfast, lunch and dinner) is a cool showcase of local design and great tailoring. For top-tier guests, the Business Class lounge offers all the necessaries for a work trip – or for a quiet place to relax. All the art and decor is, in fact, local and you can use the Radisson One Touch app to access services such as ordering room service. radissonblu.com

Hanging Out

In an unusual cross-disciplinary collaboration, jewellery designer Katherine-Mary Pichulik and interior designer Aimee Henning from Malica Design came together to create a piece of furniture that’s both practical and fantastically decorative. Combining both their skills, this woven hanging chair is a celebration of form and function, and would look equally amazing on a beach cottage veranda, in a bush bungalow or in a contemporary penthouse full of art. malicadesign.co.za; pichulik.com
