NG Kerk: Religion appears in a more tongue-in-cheek fashion in Die Laaste Braai, a black granite and stainless-steel barbecue/sculpture that Hugo designed in collaboration with artist Zander Blom. “A braai is a real cultural thing in South Africa,” says Taplin. “We even have a national heritage day called Braai Day. In Brixton, we’d always braai out of a trash can lid, and Adriaan had this idea to design the braai of all braais — sort of the last braai you’d ever need. It ended up with this religious/rock band symbol on it, which makes sense: By the end of the night, everybody is sitting around the fire, almost worshipping it.”
