Fritz and Chanelle Schoon – portrait for freundevonfreunden.com

{portraits} De Companje, Fritz and Chanelle’s business, is a bakery, a restaurant, a coffee roastery, a produce store, a wine shop and an ice cream parlor in one – and that’s just the beginning. Fritz and Chanelle are young entrepreneurs who have made their dream a reality, building a little indoor market in the Western Cape that helps keep their Dutch heritage alive.

Carolina Pimenta – portrait for freundevonfreunden.com

{portraits} With art collectors as parents, the Lisbon home of photographer Carolina Pimenta is a treasure trove full of interesting artefacts and design details. We talk with Carolina about her travels, her hat collection and what it was like to grow up surrounded by artists and artworks. Hanging out with Carolina Pimenta was the best start to our time in Lisbon, Portugal. We met up in August, now you can read the portrait and have a look at the images on Freunde von Freunden.

Not only is diversity in career and lifestyle a constant theme of the book, but the diversity of the homes as well: a self-designed villa on the green outskirts of São Paulo is followed by a houseboat converted from an old trawler on a pier in San Francisco, or an urban oasis in the center of Japan’s bustle. The focus is on authentic stories from people and the environments they’ve created for themselves.”

Mokena Makeka – portrait for freundevonfreunden.com

{portraits} We are so excited that we were able to kick off Cape Town for Freunde von Freunden! We interviewed and photographed architect Mokena Makeka about his life and journey. He’s a a thinker, a motivator, a doer. How awesome to share a bit of Cape Town with the world, it’s the flippin’ World Design Capital 2014. Read the interview, watch the video and have a look at some shots over HERE.
A fun collaboration with our friends Paul and Olga from Blackbird Productions. Love, dna – Desmond ‘n Antonia
