Young hot designers are coming to play at this years 100% Design South Africa
Young African designers are setting South Africa’s design industry alight this year at the biggest exhibition platform for Africa’s most exclusive designs, 100% Design South Africa. The event, which is set to take place between 7 – 11 August 2019, will include top designers such as Haldane Martin, Laduma Ngxokolo of MaXhosa, Houtlander, Thabisa Mjo, Vogel Design and host of other heavyweights.
In addition to an exciting line-up of exhibitors, 100% Design South Africa once again offers a series of key feature exhibitions that distinguish the show from any other. One such display is the annual 100% Café, the pulsating meeting, greeting and eating spot at the heart of the exhibition floor.
Creative Director Tracy Lynch of Studio Leelynch will draw on the work of a number of well-known South African design brands but will also use the opportunity to debut rising local talents. Mash T Design Studio, Wolkberg Casting Studios, Pedersen + Lennard, Wiid Design, Naturalis and a score of others will be showcased.
It is Lynch’s intention “to introduce the new work of established and emerging designers in an interior setting that inspires and delights and amplifies a positive story of where we are now… I am constantly astounded by the creativity and innovative design originating from Southern Africa. Local design-makers are telling our stories, their pieces are sharing our collective culture with the world.”
In collaboration with Nando’s, the event aims to showcase South African design as a world-class, notable category. This focus will not only be reflected in the pieces that will furnish the café but will also be a major thrust of the Clout Designers’ Days, taking place on 9 and 10 August 2019 in the 100% Workspace arena at the show. Here, emerging designers will be invited to pitch their work to a panel of industry professionals. The best pieces will be supported with a showcase at 100% Design South Africa 2020 and included on the Nando’s Portal to Africa, which enables exposure and commerce for the designers it lists.
To this end, 100% Design South Africa 2019 boasts two dedicated trade-focused days, taking place on 7 and 8 August 2019, over-and-above the Clout Designers’ Days. For the broader public, the show will be open to delight, stimulate and inspire from 7-11 August 2019 and is open on the Public Holiday on 9 August 2019.
