Talk at Design Indaba Expo 2009

Speaking at a Pecha Kucha event organised at the 2009 Design Indaba Expo, South African designer Haldane Martin talks about his work (including his Polyhedra Coffee Table) and his inspirations.

His latest piece, the Polyhedra Coffee table, is about unifying nature and technology to create a sense of belonging. Much of Martin’s work is inspired by “poetic structures” in nature in this way, such as the geometry of bee hives and organic growth patterns like algae.
