Homeowners, designers and trendsetters, it's that time once again! Design Joburg 2019 will be taking place at the Sandton Convention Centre this May! This is one of Gauteng’s premier, contemporary, decorative and highly-anticipated design shows which has quickly established itself as the continent’s leading annual décor and design must-attend event.
Media 10 will once again bring a stellar number of the best design brands under one roof, combining the local and global pioneers and trailblazers of the design world. The 2019 show will be tailored under the curative eye of one of the continent’s most iconic design duos, Philippe van der Merwe and Greg Gamble, from retail atelier and design studio, Tonic Design. This show is an absolute must, so make sure you get your tickets ASAP.
South Africa’s best designers, architects and style shapers will transform the Sandton Convention Centre into Africa’s hotspot for the most innovative and covetable interiors.
1. For insights from industry experts.
The headline addition to the lineup is the Kohler Theatre. This auditorium space, designed by Belgotex, will host internationally acclaimed designers, Michael Anastassiades and Yinka Ilori – courtesy of SA Tourism and KOHLER respectively – on the show’s opening day. The weekend's remaining programme will then host local and continental design luminaries, who'll share their insights by way of not-to-be-missed talks.
2. For collaboration.
One of the show’s major differentiators, CoLabs, will once again see stellar designers creating collaborative room sets using the wares of some of South Africa’s top drawer brands, artisans and suppliers. The line-up of designers this year includes Dylan Thomaz, Fanie van Zyl, Tuami Zulu, Nelson Kubheka, Julia Day and Wendy Douglas.
3. For the local design.
Proudly brimming with local design, the show’s two major hives of homegrown talent include the SPA ZAR and SA Furniture Collective features. The highly anticipated SPA ZAR feature, in conjunction with SA Tourism, will present a generous selection of over 30 hand-picked creatives from multiple disciplines, both established and emerging, who will show off their wares in style within cubes curated by Source IBA’s Mardre Meyer. In addition, SA Furniture Collective will honour a handful of the country’s top furniture designers who will be showcasing their newest creations under the sharply honed, curative eye of Tonic designers, Greg Gamble and Philippe van der Merwe.
4. For design from around the world.
For those with an eye on the global design landscape, Design Joburg will be unveiling the latest collections from several sacred design heavyweights. Design stalwarts such as Cassina, Roche Bobois, Fabri, Kohler and Tom Dixon will all represent the international market with their latest furniture, lighting, bathroom and kitchen collections. Turkish design in particular will take centre stage, as Design Joburg puts this up and coming design force under the spotlight, decoding why this country has earned its place as one of the world’s leading design destinations. Here, several leading Turkish designers and crafters will showcase their newest creations at the show.
5. For the love of food and drink.
This year, Design Joburg has teamed up with celebrated Sowetan-born chef, Wandile Mabaso. He's bringing something fresh – entitled les créatifs - to the show’s ‘food-design’ table. Then, following its popularity from last year, this year’s Hendrick’s Gin Bar promises to be another stylish affair, courtesy of Joburg's pre-eminent furniture and interior design brand Studio19.
Other show features to look out for include the Art and Retail Corridors, plus the returning Architect’s Gallery curated by celebrated South African architectural studio SAOTA.
With the standard of design ever evolving, boundaries being pushed and the pull to Design Joburg becoming even stronger, visitors and exhibitors are anticipating the best show yet.
