In the shadow of the Sentech tower, Brixton in Johannesburg is not widely recognised as a design hotspot, but design duo Dokter and Misses are set on upsetting the cradle with their cardboard handbags and heavy metal bling. Comprising Adriaan Hugo and Katy Taplin, they have now joined forces with designer Joe Paine to open their flagship store at the 44 Stanley Avenue shopping precinct. The store stocks furniture, clothing, jewellery, accessories, packaging, ceramics and garden pots by local designers including Joe, me and joe, Margaret Hugo, Smitten and themselves.
