Innovation is ingrained in 100% Design South Africa’s identity. As Africa’s leading design trade show, the event focuses on growing, finding and showcasing new talent, foregrounding established excellence, and investigating better ways to design. As a result, the show speaks to a spirit of constant curiosity and industry best practice so that visitors – both trade guests and homeowners – can source best-of-class design from the continent and beyond.

Natural order

After its debut at Decorex Cape Town, the Botanical Office will make its way to the show in August. This award-winning display reimagines the workplace environment by transforming what’s stereotypically a purely functional space into one that fosters productivity and wellbeing. Creative director Cathy O’Clery will incorporate residential furniture, layered textures and objects of interest - created by some of SA’s biggest talents - into an office set-up that offers viewers a fresh alternative. In Jozi, the Botanical Office will feature designers and brands such as: The New Modernist, Southern Hospitality, Kino, Entrawood, Hoi P’loy and Evolution Product.
