Suzanne´s Kasler most challenging project was the Sirikoi Game Lodge in Kenya. Problems started when their container, with all of the things needed for the installation in Kenya, were held captive by the South African government and her clients had to pay the government to release the container. Moreover, it did not actually arrive in Kenya for another month.
But Susane had turner a largely unsuccessful trip into an amazing one due to her creativity. During the waiting time the designer found the most fabulous indigenous art and accessories in the craft and artisan fair in Karen, Nairobi. These pieces of the local artisans had added an incredible dimension to the project at the final stage.
