Combining Two Different Forms Of Art


Our New Collaboration with Lizamore & Associates!

During recent photo shoots, we began to notice that some of our clients incorporated works of art into their open plan kitchen living spaces. Often, as designers, we will include images of paintings or sculptures into our display photographs as a way of indicating where cupboards will not be placed. This resulted in us realizing that art has its own particular presence and is essential in allowing you to fully personalize your space and express your own creativity and style. It makes perfect sense that we should be celebrating the fine arts as we continue to uphold the art of kitchen design. A kitchen should be ergonomic and functional, but the beauty of a kitchen
is important too.
In an effort to celebrate these two very different but perfectly complimentary art forms, we have collaborated with the sought after art gallery, Lizamore & Associates, to ensure that the best contemporary art by South African artists find their way into your kitchen. We’ll be featuring Lizamore’s artists on our pages and incorporate their work into our photography, enabling you to experience a perfectly selected artwork in your living space and supporting some of finest local artists.

Portals Of Migration

Thabang Lehobye.jpg

Portals of Migration is part of an ongoing series by Lehobye exploring the inhabitants of Johannesburg

and the city itself as subject. The idea of a physical space being passed over different generations of migrants,

like the Hillbrow Tower being past as a baton, speaks of the diversity which makes Johannesburg such

a unique place - a constant architectural cityscape frozen in time with an ever-changing
migrant population. The artist aims to challenge the viewer to step into the work and to see themselves walk the streets.

Somewhere Over The Rainbow

RMB has invested time in creating a safe space and recognition for its LGBTQIA+ community.

This has also meant that as an organization, RMB / OL has taken time to recognize some key events in the
community including international pride and SA pride. Similarly, RMB is a significant supporter of the
art community in various ways. An exhibition that looks at the triumphs of the

LBTQIA+ community curated to include artists that are allies or part of the LGBTQIA+ community is an event
that is dynamic and has a few key touch points close to RMBs centres of interest / care.

This is particularly important given that the artistic community is the most affected by the
recent pandemic. The intention is that the art can be sold to the FRB community and select
external known buyers but we are also able to create awareness and bring important stories to the fore.

During this period we are working with Gala to create a webinar that covers more
challenging conversations around the reason for Pride / Pride month to accompany the exhibition.
