Dezeen Magazine

Five years ago...

Five years ago, when Dezeen was still in its infancy, we travelled to Cape Town for the 10th Design Indaba conference. From here, we shared links to movies showing Swedish designers Front questioning whether or not design makes people happy, as well as some snapshots from the party where guests included Jaime Hayon, Jasper Morrison, Michael Young and Neville Brody.

We gave readers a sneak preview of the furniture Rolf Sachs proceeded to show at the Milan furniture fair in April, as well as a look at the bathroom collection that Ross Lovegrove went on to launch in Frankfurt.

Vases made from salvaged sherry glasses, plastic animals and PVC caught the attention of a few readers, while others were both fascinated and disturbed by a light that is switched on and off by touching a bare wire.
