In an open public voting process, Houtlander’s curvilinear Interdependence II bench was judged the Most Beautiful Object in South Africa and announced as the winner on Friday 1 March 2019 at the annual Design Indaba Conference.
Houtlander’s strikingly sinuous bench secured 20% of the total votes. The polls officially opened on Friday, 25 January 2019 and members of the public submitted anonymous votes online via conference.designindaba.com/mboisa.
Houtlander’s winning seating design is punctuated by flowing lines and beautiful curves with an unexpected twist. Not to mention statement-making colour – a strident blue that sits midway between Azure and Persian. The bench is typical of Houtlander’s pared-back aesthetic, but with a decidedly playful and conceptual element.
