Louise Marsland[Louise Marsland] The always spectacular Design Indaba will this year be remembered, not only for the fabulous speakers such as Harry Pearce, Bruce Nussbaum, Priyush Pandey, Stefan Bucher, Mokena Makeke, etc, but for the worst presentation it’s ever hosted – by famous ‘homemaker’ Martha Stewart.
