Manthe Ribane Liebmann Interview
Manthe Ribane Liebmann is a multidisciplinary artist, Editor-at-Large at House & Leisure magazine and a creative director of Natura Co-Lab concept store. We’re thrilled to have her as a member of Design Joburg’s Creative Panel.
- Your thoughts on being a member of Design Joburg 2022’s creative panel?
Alignment beyond alignment. This means the world to me to have an opportunity to embark and create a new world for new possibility.
- How will you be showcasing yourself and your talents at the show?
I am creating a feature entitled “The Art of Living”. This will be a space where I want visitors to understand the power of minimalism. The space will also appeal to all the senses. I want to show people how we can implement the art of living into our own lives. I’ll also be launching a new furniture collection and, since I strongly believe in the power of collaboration, collaborating with several local brands.
- What’s your favourite piece of design?
I'm currently loving the sculptural Pantheone audio speaker. All sound meets design, the Pantheone is a bespoke and autonomous work of modern art – combining exquisite reproduction with minimalist design and bringing you sound that can be seen. The Pantheone is available at our Natura Co-Lab store together with Dokter and Misses’ innovative furniture designs, Natura Box linen fashion collection and Bafedi 2020 bed linen collection. Natura Co-Lab’s latest furniture collection is also top of my favourite design list!
