Happening during Women’s Month in August, Decorex Joburg, 100% Design Africa and Design Joburg honour SA’s talented women in design for their exceptional creations and contribution to the industry

Coinciding with Women’s Month, the country’s leading decor and design events – Decorex Joburg, 100% Design Africa and Design Joburg – will take place from August 3–6 featuring a host of powerful female designers.

While Women’s Month celebrates the strength and accomplishments of women in the face of inequality and suppression, hosting these design events during this significant time is an opportunity to celebrate the talent of the women in our design industry. They will be putting on a vibrant display of creativity at the shows, alongside many other exhibitors.

Look out for:

The matri-architects

Matri-Archi(tecture), an association of architects, artists, planners, scholars and thinkers working to bring African women together for the development of spatial education in African cities, will be presenting their work on the development of the future of the African built environment to showgoers at their 100% Design Africa stand.

Women in the GREEN design seat 

Decorex Africa challenged local designers to create a signature chair that incorporates the five Rs — reduce, reuse, recycle, repurpose and refuse — for both Decorex Cape Town, which took place in June, and the upcoming Decorex Joburg. 

Look out for green seat creations by Andrea Kleinloog of Hesse Kleinloog, Sanri Pienaar, Hannerie Visser and others.

Future of Design Studio 

Future of Design is a fusion of physical and digital exhibits, interactive workshops, live demonstrations and presentations by top SA design authorities, who will be speaking about current and future issues facing the design industry. 

Expect insightful talks from Hannerie Visser, the owner and creative director of food-focused design and brand consultancy Studio H; Tracy Lee Lynch, the designer behind Studio Lee Lynch and creative director of Clout/SA; and Georgia Black, the founder of micro festival producers Littlegig. Catch Decorex Joburg, 100% Design Africa, and Design Joburg at the Sandton Convention Centre, sponsored by Samsung, Plascon, Sanlam Private Wealth and Lexus.
