The Bucket List

On my recent visit to South Africa I noticed the good old bucket had inspired the design of several trendy establishments. My first encounter was at the Melrose Arch Hotel in Johannesburg, here you'll find enormous buckets juxtaposed alongside tables and chairs to create a playful cafe in the swimming pool.

More bucket inspired d├ęcor were found at Old Mac Daddy Trailer Park, here the Cape Town Industrial Designers Pedersen and Lennard used the bucket in it's original form to create whimsical lights & furniture pieces.
