Abstract:

From the Publisher: In this lavish study of safari chic, stunning photographs of landscapes, lodge architecture and, especially, interior designs span the robust and sensual spectrum of the best-designed safari camps of our time. The text interweaves comments from the designers and architects who created the looks and concepts for each lodge. What emerges is a very focused glimpse into the spirit and sophistication of high-end southern African safari design. Luxurious and pioneering at once, these are dwellings that, while rooted in African history, possess an international appeal that is beginning to influence aesthetic ideas the world over. Emerging in the last decade-and-a-half, the New Safari style is a product of two extremes, providing a creative, cultural synergy that is, in many ways, what contemporary middle-class South African society is all about. Combining hi-tech, high-end architecture with traditional low-tech African craft, New Safari fuses these diverse aesthetics with an original, soulful-even sexy-interior design sensibility that brings texture, color, pattern and objects together to create an exciting new blueprint for African style.
