In conjunction with headline sponsor Dauphin HumanDesign® Group, 100% Design South Africa is set to take place from 6 to 10 August 2015 at the Gallagher Convention Centre in Johannesburg. An international design show with a unique African perspective, 100% Design is focused on showcasing top global design brands alongside local design brilliance, wowing visitors with beautiful curated displays.
The show gives consumers and a trade audience the opportunity to explore exciting new offerings from leading exhibitors, ranging from classic and contemporary furniture, to ceramics, textiles and more.”We are thrilled that design is now being taken more seriously as a crucial part of any business. Good design should be entrenched in everything people do – it is not just about product making. How systems are designed, how machines work, how successful a business is – all of this comes down to good design”, say 100% Design South Africa Creative Director Laurence Brick and Programme Director Cathy O’Clery.
The show will feature a number of South African companies such as Egg Design, De Steyl, David Krynauw, Raw Studio and The Design Team, while international brands such as The Scandinavian Sofa Company, Vitra and Hay from Innova are confirmed to be present.
A highlight of the show includes 100% Colour in association with Plascon and Condé Nast House and Garden, where the featured designer for 2015, Renee Rossouw, known of her use of bold colours and patterns, will reveal her new portfolio of designs and products. Other highlights include 100% Office by Liam Mooney; 100 Beautiful Things with VISI – an artsy display of one hundred great designs made in SA in 2015 selected by Cathy O’Clery; 100% Upliftment in association with Art in the Forest and House & Leisure – an exhibition of work by talented local ceramicists such as Clementina Van De Walt, Lis Firer, Nic Sithole and Mododa Fani; and 100% Talent in association with Between 10and5, a collection of work from emerging SA designers; and lastly, an exhibition titled ‘_SPHERE’ presented by Dutch initiative Development by Design.
“We have a long way to go to get young people into design; we need to reintroduce the concept of apprentices and on the job training. At 100% Design South Africa, we feel strongly about pushing the next generation which is why we introduced 100% Talent to help emerging creatives. As curators, we also sponsor a young feature designer to help propel that individual’s career to the next level.”
