With a host of seats on various boards and degrees under her belt ranging from Interior Architecture and African Art History to Property Development, it’d be fair to call Potlako Gasennelwe the best kind of overachiever. Her brand PG Interiors has 24 years behind it and has completed work in a broad range of spaces, scooping numerous awards in return. Potlako believes in design with integrity and never settling for average. Some of her most notable projects include Tsogo Sun, Serena Hotel Kigali, MTN Head Office 14 Avenue and Shambala Resort - Mandela’s Private Retreat among others. “We understand the commercial value of a brand and consider ourselves creators, nurturers and custodians,” she says of her approach. Besides being one of this year’s CoLab designers she is also designing the #DJ20 restaurant for Chef Wandile Mabaso.
