For the second year in a row, the Sandton Convention Centre served as the destination of choice for Joburg décor and design lovers to tap into new sources of inspiration. And while it was impossible not to love everything on offer at Design Joburg this year, these four stands kept us coming around for more.
Mpho Vackier could not have chosen a more perfect setting or time (with 25 May being Africa Day) to introduce The Urbanative’s 2018 African Crowns Collection. Inspired by the sculptural lines, forms and textures of traditional African hairstyles, this year’s collection features intricately braided and woven details incorporated into the fun, functional furniture pieces the brand is becoming synonymous with.
The innovative, design-driven kitchen and built-in furniture brand partnered with Gaggenau to showcase an integrative kitchen space incorporating built-in shelving, cupboards and furniture. FABRI has also just been awarded bronze at this year’s European Product Design Awards for their ID (integrative design) Collection. Designed by FABRI’s Inês Sabino, the collection addresses the growing need for stylish, multi-functional furniture in modern homes.
Serving as creative directors of Design Joburg for the second year in a row, Anatomy Design’s Andrea Kleinloog and Megan Hesse also took the opportunity to introduce a few new pieces with an elegant, slightly tropical feel.
By partnering with FLOAT Concrete, Streamlight was able to showcase Vibia’s new Palma Collection in all its glory as well as give viewers a taste of what’s to come with their in-house brand, Dark. Elsewhere, Streamlight partnered with Roche Bobois, Studio A and the Architect’s Gallery to showcase the variety and versatility of their lighting options on offer.
