Au­gust is when the busi­ness of de­sign gets se­ri­ous on local soil, with the re­turn of 100% De­sign South Africa from 8-12 Au­gust. Now in its fifth year, this bench­mark of in­dus­try ex­cel­lence is renowned for its ex­cep­tional se­lec­tion process and fine-tuned cu­ra­tion, re­sult­ing in a show that al­ways de­liv­ers heaps of in­spi­ra­tion as well as leads on all the names to be watch­ing. Tak­ing place as usual in tan­dem with Decorex Jo’burg at the Gallagher Con­ven­tion Cen­tre, 100% De­sign South Africa of­fers a great line-up. Show cu­ra­tor Cathy O’Clery, a highly re­garded de­sign con­sul­tant, will be pre­sent­ing an ac­com­plished se­lec­tion of wooden fur­ni­ture and ac­ces­sories in her ex­hi­bi­tion De­sign­ing in Wood. As ever, emerg­ing ta­lent is in the spot­light, from the Young Gaut­eng sec­tion high­light­ing up­com­ing de­sign­ers from the re­gion to 100% Ta­lent, where fu­ture in­dus­try stars are likely to be dis­cov­ered. Among these and other fea­ture dis­plays – cov­er­ing wall­pa­per and fab­ric to of­fice fur­ni­ture – are more than 130 in­di­vid­ual ex­hi­bi­tion stands and pavil­ions. And to re­fresh amid the vis­ual over­load, there’s the 100% De­sign Café cre­ated in col­lab­o­ra­tion with fur­ni­ture de­sign­ers Hout­lander.
