Gone are the days of being subjected to incorporating African décor as seen fit by overseas designers – what do they know about African style anyway? With the first Decorex exhibition in Durban giving as a sneak peek, Cape Town can expect to see African traditional and contemporary style being redesigned in the brand-new Trend Pods. Leveraging a designated place to show-off African style imagined by Africans. According to Sian Gutstadt, Portfolio Director of Decorex, the aim of the Trend pods installations is to, “draw on the organic glamour of Africa, but reinterpret it to display both an edgy now-ness of form and an ancient handling of materials.”
As 100% Design South Africa runs in collaboration with Decorex Cape Town, they will set the stage with their 100% textiles showcase and no doubt bring an army of eager fabric enthusiasts. The showcase consists of four components, such as Picture Africa that will boast a beautiful clash between the art of photography and textiles, where you’ll see a mashup of South African studio photography with a backdrop of vibrant textiles that simply jump off the canvas.
It’s no secret that Decorex Cape Town has bagged a few awards thanks to its unique exhibition, taking décor to a whole other level by bringing together the best icons and all things décor that South Africa has to offer. If this this were the Oscars, they’d get every award under the décor category. Their bold approach to exhibiting has brought about an even more infinite pool of décor ideas to source from with the new DIY theatre. Here you can learn more tricks of the trade and how pull off what you’ve learned in your own home from their interactive and insightful talks.
