From a beautifully designed store and stylish public benches to a video game set in Cape Town and limited-edition bubbly, these are the VISI team’s top picks of the week.

1. Camper Store by Kengo Kuma

“Renowned architect Kengo Kuma has designed a mesmerising new store for footwear brand Camper in Barcelona,” says Online Editor Lindi Brownell Meiring. “I love the way he’s used terracotta tiles to form patterns on the walls – just beautiful!”

2. Folk for Vestre by Front

“I love this new range of furniture and objects for public spaces, developed by Swedish brand Front for Vestre,” says Editor-in-Chief Sumien Brink. “The intention is for the designs to fit into landscapes and urban areas with different architectural styles.”

“What better excuse than Valentine’s Day to look at the world through rosé tinted glasses?” laughs Features Editor Amelia Brown. “I’d choose this limited-edition Moët & Chandon Rosé Living Ties bubbly over chocolates any day.”

5. Cape Town Features in Video Game

“A series of new games have been created, all based on real-life locations across the globe,” says Managing Editor Samantha Charles. “A new campaign saw three game designers, including Éva Kedves, re-imagine 10 overlooked cities around the world as game locations – one of which includes Cape Town.”
