100 percent Design South Africa

100 percent Design South Africa from 5 to 9 August 2016 at Gallagher Convention Centre. Expect to see exciting new work and ranges from a stellar exhibitor list of top local and global brands, from classic and contemporary furniture to ceramics, textiles and more… all of which set the style pace for the year to come.


Now in its third annual rendition, the much acclaimed 100% Design South Africa is the country’s only international and local design show. The superbly curated feature displays – a standout element of the show – and the outstanding quality of the exhibition stands combine to attract design trade professionals and members of the public alike.

One of South Africa’s most successful design exports takes centre stage as the Featured Design House for 2016. Dokter and Misses’s Afro-modern product and furniture designs will be on show in a dedicated exhibition space. As will those of Tonic Design… this sophisticated studio of Slow Lounge fame is the designer choice for the annual hospitality interior display, 100% Hotel. Similarly, one of South Africa’s leading interior design firms, Inhouse Brand Architects, will present a concept design for the office of the future in the 100% Office space.

100 Beautiful Things, a show favourite, singles out 100 South African product designs. These beautiful products are carefully selected and then artfully displayed by 100% Design South Africa Programme Director, Cathy O’Clery. Emerging talent will also be brought to the fore in a dedicated pavilion, 100% Talent, which gives our future design luminaries a platform. 100% Café is the vibrant meet-and-eat gathering space at the heart of the show and will be decked out in style by Jacket Interiors. 

Four all-new attractions will be presented in Joburg for the first time: 100% Concrete, 100% Supermarket, Picture Africa and Talking Textiles. 100% Concrete, partnered with the PPC Imaginarium, will demonstrate the use of concrete in interiors, as well as drive entries to the country’s richest art and design competition.

Added to the scintillating array of curated features are top-notch exhibitors such as Design Team, Meyer von Wielligh, willowlamp, Mungo, Joe Paine, David Bellamy, Leonardo and scores more… An added attraction is the significant number of designers from Swaziland, Cape Town and Durban who’ll be present. Egg Design, Arkivio, Goodwood and Notation hail from KwaZulu-Natal; while Douglas & Co, Hoi P’loy, Jasper Eales and many others will travel to the show from the Mother City, giving Gautengers access to wares that are otherwise hard to attain.

100% Design South Africa takes place alongside Decorex Joburg, but is located in its own hall. As a bonus for visitors, one ticket covers entrance to both shows. A hit of design inspiration not to be missed! For more information visit: www.100percentdesign.co.za
