The fifth edition of 100% Design South Africa is in Joburg this week. The design-led experiential show, with a strong focus on interior design, promises to inspire visitors with a diverse display of new products.
Here’s what to expect:
Feature designer of the year
Internationally acclaimed ceramicist Andile Dyalvane will be unveiling a collection of hand-crafted bowls created exclusively for the show. 100 Beautiful Bowls is inspired by the artist’s own spirituality, memories and Fibonacci patterns in nature.
Designing in Wood
This feature explores the distinct skills needed to work with wood. Curated by O’Clery, Designing in Wood will include a selection of products by top designers, including chairs, cabinets, furniture and other accessories.
100% Apartment in association with Condé Nast House & Garden
A new feature designed and curated by Mother City Hardware, the Cape Town studio will produce a contemporary urban apartment featuring considered furniture pieces, homeware and art.
100% Design Café
Each year, 100% Design South Africa gives a top designer the chance to produce the 100% Design Café. At this year’s event, casual dining meets Shaker design with Houtlander at the helm of the project.
The 100% Talent exhibit will showcase work by promising designers and brands. Visitors can explore a range of homeware and accessories, such as tiles and handmade earthenware from The Anagora Earthenware, illustrations and collectible 3D-cartoon figurines by Studio Taki, African-inspired tableware and leather bags by My Love for Africa.
The Fabric & Wallpaper Gallery
Fabcote, the southern African distributor of US-based Phillip Jeffries’ premium wall coverings, will be exhibiting their latest designs. Joining the display is Robin Sprong.
