What Is It?
This June, the Kramerville Design District will be reinventing itself as an urban showcase. With Sanlam Private Wealth as the headline sponsorship partner, DJC promises to be an exhibition that’s close in style and pace to fringe events such as Déco Off in Paris and Fuorisalone in Milan.
The free-to-attend three-day showcase will highlight the latest in innovative designs from both international and local décor and design brands. It promises to be a festival experience with a considerable style quotient – and all within a one-kilometre radius of Kramerville. Organisers note their full adherence to Covid-19 protocols.
The experienced team behind DJC is keen to flex their talents in a new “space”. There will be a sharply curated combination of outdoor and indoor attractions – delighting visitors with new products and collections, pimped-up in-store and window displays, as well as must-attend activations and offers. Several showrooms will also be hosting talks, featuring leaders in the creative community.
Whilst Kramerville’s participating tenants will be spotlighted, DJC has also created opportunities for designers, crafters and creative brands without representation in the precinct. Expect eclectic pop-ups in designated sites. The art scene will also be represented, with various exhibits by leading local and international artists, including outdoor sculpture from James Delaney; various work by multidisciplinary artist, Keneilwe Mothoa; and an exhibition by French artist, Catherine Timotei.
The neighbourhood’s existing dining offering will be complemented by a handpicked selection of open-air food trucks and bars – including a Hendrick’s gin bar.
A product of necessity – as well as design – DJC is set to shake up the traditional exhibition space this June. Don your takkies and take to the streets of Kramerville for an experiential feast within the epicentre of Joburg’s décor and design scene. There’s optimism in the air.
