    Thanks for the post Dezeen. When asked during a BBC interview which of his designs was his favourite, his answer was “my next one”.

    An artist of the highest caliber.

    WOW! What a household name, even in South Africa. I’m 10 years younger than him but seem to know his name as an ICON for as long as I can remember.
