heath nash in his studio image © designboom designboom recently got a personal look at south african designer heath nash’s cape town studio. the unassuming black and white building sits on a steep hill above the emerging woodstock area in east cape town. inside, the studio is filled with scrap materials of all kinds, which nash converts into his recycled creations. floors are covered in plastic bottles and finished lamps hang from the ceiling. nash showed us some of his new projects including a weaving project done with a group of craftswoman in zimbabwe and the metallic material he will be converting into a series of dresses.
