    Making Friday with GIH Studio

    This post is a bit of a mashup of our Friends & Neighbours and Making Friday features, because it’s a story about a South African designer who credits his start as a furniture designer to my Making Fridays idea. I met Gareth Henderson of GIH Studio on a glaringly hot rooftop in Cape Town earlier this year, as …
