2. Jie Wu’s Mini Storage Boxes
“Royal College of Art graduate Jie Wu has created a series of 17 beautiful storage boxes, made from resin,” says Online Editor Lindi Brownell Meiring. “Jie wanted to explore the relationship society has with both natural and manmade materials, as well as the idea of timeless treasures and what a modern-day version of that would like.”

3. Juke Neon Artworks
“Cape Town-based brand Juke (run by Julia and Luke) designs and crafts contemporary neon artworks,” says Features Editor Amelia Brown. “The idea behind the pieces was to disassociate neon from signage and move it into a decor space.”
