This year, in celebration of World Design Capital 2014, Guild exhibited in Cape Town for the very first time, where local and international high-end design products from Africa, the US, South America, Britain and Europe were showcased at V & A Waterfront. All the products exhibited were hand-crafted in limited editions or once-offs, all of them exploring this year’s Guild theme: ‘Making’.

 

Participating designers included Gregor Jenkin, Haldane Martin, Dylan Lewis, Heath Nash, John Vogel, Bronze Age, Conrad Botes, Brett Murray, James Mudge, Lyall Sprong, Porky Heffer, Ceramic Matters, Nic Bladen, Pedersen and Lennard, Angus Taylor, Guy DuToit, Wayne Barker, Life, Ronel Jordaan, Koop, Dahla Hume, House on Fire, Dokter and Misses, Laduma Ngxokolo, among many others.

 

“We choose people whose work engages the viewer, breaks new ground, shakes things up a bit” say Trevyn and Julian McGowan, curators of Southern Guild, who also founded Guild.

 

Here are some of the items and designers that caught our eye at this year’s Guild Design Fair.
