SINDISO KHUMALO / BOTSWANA: KHAYA TABLE & EDIE STOOL, 2015 Sindiso Khumalo is a textile designer born in Botswana and raised in Durban, South Africa. This current piece of work is a collaboration between Khumalo and the London design practice Opendesk. It is a children’s table and stool, designed to function as a gender-free, multifunctional design object. It can be a children’s stool by day and a side table when the child is no longer using it. The print is called the ‘Billie’ print, named after the jazz singer Billie Holiday. It draws its references from the Ndebele printed walls that can be seen in the northern provinces of South Africa.
