We travel the world, year in and year out, looking for brands and designs that inspire a sense of purpose within us. From Paris’s Maison & Objet to the Euroluce show in Milan, we have become somewhat seasoned design-fair-attendees. However, no matter how eccentric and exotic these international shows may be, there is nothing quite like attending and displaying at one in your very own city. South Africa’s premier event showcasing the leaders in décor and design, Design Joburg, gets underway this weekend.
The team behind Design Joburg are always finding the perfect balance between long standing favourites that highlight the best in the industry and new innovative brands giving insight into the new direction design is taking in South Africa. For this very reason, Design Joburg brings together architects, designers, specifiers, developers, as well as multinational companies looking to source directly for their latest projects.
Each year Design Joburg sees thousands flocking to the glamorous Sandton Convention Centre. Bringing together the very best decor brands and personalities from around the country and worldwide- this is a must-see for homeowners and trendsetters. Whether it’s the young couple trying to find inspiration for their new home or seasoned attendees, popping into snoop around and see what’s happening, Design Joburg’s primary purpose is to offer South Africans an inspiring high-end showcase of local and international design.
DARK– a brand where design and decor meet fashion and lifestyle will be displaying their latest collection. Consisting of local and international brands, Dark is inspired by their young, stylish and passionate clientele. Offering designs that are unique yet won’t break the bank, DARK has already become a favourite. We all want the glitzy magazine-spread-apartment without having to sell our kidneys, and this is what DARK offers. DARK wants to educate the audience that style does not necessarily mean expensive, and expensive does not necessarily imply style. So expect a stand that incorporates pieces from all over the world. Designs from Amsterdam will be on display alongside pieces from Hong Kong and South Africa. DARK is the brand that will change the way the younger generations look at the importance of design.
Not only will dark have a stand, but across from their position will be their retail space where you can buy everything and anything your heart desires. Be sure to come with a slightly fat wallet! We look forward to meeting you, sharing a drink or two and possibly collaborating in the future.
