Our annual WISHLIST series has kicked off, and once again we’ve invited a few creative friends with impeccable taste to guest curate all-local gift guides for the festive season. As champions of SA creativity, we’re 100% behind supporting local designers and buying local products. This WISHLIST comes curtesy of Neville Trickett, KZN-based design guru, artist, Instagram fanatic and all-round creative guy. Neville says: “The reason I am liking your story is it reminds me of Pearl Jam’s song Wishlist. I am addicted to Japan. I am a Tom Waits fanatic. I prefer the wrong side of the tracks. I collect vinyl toys and anything with a touch of the macabre. Cute shit is not for me.” So without further ado – Neville’s list of covetable stuff:   

1/ Gregor Jenkins: Playable Table 
Gregor’s table is an exercise in simplicity. Perfection at its best. I wish for a few more related pieces. One offs.
