From H&M’s first collaboration with a South African label to a moon-inspired floor lamp and a paper camera, these are the VISI team’s top picks of the week.

1. BAND Collection by Patricia Urquiola

“Renowned designer Patricia Urquiola has launched a new chair collection,” says Online Editor Lindi Brownell Meiring. “Entitled BAND, the angular designs of both the dining chair and club armchair aim to challenge the sophisticated lines seen in traditional furniture design.”

“H&M has announced its first African collaboration with South African designer Palesa Mokubung’s Mantsho label,” says Features Editor Amelia Brown. “The range, which features Palesa’s signature vibrant prints and structural silhouettes, will consist of womenswear and accessories, and will be available in all South African stores, as well as exclusive flagship stores around the world, from mid August.”

3. DOTMOT Paper Camera

“This clever paper camera by Seoul-based design studio DOTMOT comes complete with interchangeable lenses and a removable flash,” says Copy Editor Kay-Ann van Rooyen. “While the model can’t actually take images, it would still be fun to construct.”
