Design Joburg, featuring Rooms on View 2018 leaves inspired visitors overawed by the record standard set in the local décor and design exhibition space.
For its second year running, Media 10’s Design Joburg, featuring Rooms on View was an all-round success setting records for outstanding standards in the level of exhibits. Held in the city’s centrally located Sandton Convention Centre, the show saw 10 000 visitors through its doors over the three day period.
As a signature initiative of Design Joburg, our CoLabs were once again a great draw card that brought the masses to the show, resulting in much social media hype.
Fired Earth’s partnership with the show’s CoLab features saw the creation of about a dozen new paint colours in collaboration with the participating designers that impressed visitors with its spectrum of usable colours.
Some of the show’s highlights this year included a pop up restaurant by Marble, the Architect's Gallery, Interior Architect's Gallery, the new Retail Corridor, a bonus for those who wanted to purchase some of the fantastic design items at the show and Front Row, an exhibition that threw light onto some of the top new local and international designs in seating and side tables. The Hendricks Gin Bar presented yet another bar option for discerning visitors, fusing Ardmore’s wild, animal-centric designs with the herbal infused notes of Hendrick’s Gin.
So impressive were some of the Rooms on View stands at the show that they too pulled droves of cell phone snapping visitors.
With the standard of design increasing and the pull to Design Joburg becoming an unstoppable force visitors and potential exhibitors are keenly awaiting 2019’s offering.
