Designers Katy Taplin and Adriaan Hugo created this room with a Bauhaus meets Joburg mining town concept. While the wall treatments are indicative of what one would have encountered in a gold-rush mining town during this decade, internationally art and design movement De Stijl and the Modernist Bauhaus design movement were gaining momentum and influenced the furnishings of the room. This results in the room being dubbed a Jo’burg Minehaus.
