100% Design South Africa wows with top-notch local talent
The always-anticipated 100% Design South Africa show, presented together with Decorex Joburg, has come around again. Running all weekend at Gallagher Convention Centre in Midrand, it’s a vibrant showcase of the country’s creativity and manufacturing prowess and brilliantly illustrates the depth of talent in our design industry. As the premier design trade show on the continent it consistently brings together designers to launch new products and collaborate on new projects, catalyzing further the industry’s growth and development.
Some highlights to look forward to this weekend are:
