A Magical Space in the Heart of Muizenberg
I found a gem and my new favourite store in the heart of the beautiful seaside village of Muizenberg! It’s everything my rock ‘n roll heart’s ever wanted – think sparkling sculls, candles in remarkable shapes and completely unique jewellery… Sobeit Studio recently opened the doors to their first stand-alone retail outlet, and it’s a must for anyone looking for… well, something exceptional. The store offers a completely different shopping experience. You can really spend hours in the space just looking at everything, as the owners and artists really created an alice-in-wonderland-like space.
Since opening in 2011, Sobeit Studio has established an excellent reputation for their specialist design and manufacturing studio. The colourful space is owned and operated by Bartél van Vuuren and Liezle Fourie, and driven by a desire to obsolete the ordinary. Together they create a range of unique (and unusual!) lifestyle and décor pieces that draw inspiration from anatomy, organics and all things curious.
With expertise in composites, metals and mould-making, the Sobeit Studio product line of unusual curiosity-style pieces range from lighting and furniture, to candles and jewellery – all with a unique twist! The studio has also amassed an impressive portfolio of design projects and interiors focusing on customised items and innovative product development.
The store is the perfect place to get lost in – a creative wonderland full of amazing and strange surprises. And after all the shopping, you can sit down and have a delicious coffee in their little coffee shop area at the back.
Next time you’re that side of the Mountain, make sure you pop in!
