New Features

Guided by the key insights on the design industry, informed in turn by our research, each new feature of Decorex Africa addresses a particular need, desire, gap, or opportunity.

100% Weave in collaboration with House and Leisure

Supported by local textile houses, this exhibit will explore weaving in all its facets, from traditional hand-weaving of baskets and crafts to industrial fabric production of the textile industry that services fashion, interior design and industry. 

Exhibitors in this space will have the opportunity to see their insights, approaches and innovations threaded into the history of woven design practice. 

100% Transparency in collaboration with Conde Nast House & Garden

Transparency in design means purpose-led design that draws a clear line between insight and execution while not obfuscating design challenges, processes and materials. In our Radical Transparency exhibition, we address this approach from all angles through a conversation around both literal and figurative transparency in design. The exhibit will be curated with transparent designs from a range of brands, from small independents to large industrial players, with the intention of showing the power of transparency to build brand affinity and trust.

100% Chair

Take a seat and let’s examine the indispensable chair: an object of design that serves as a base for deeper design-related debate than you might imagine.

Our 100% Chair exhibit looks at the evolution of this often simple, always ubiquitous design staple in relation to concepts of ‘Good Design’, the zeitgeist of design, cultural influences and innovation.

Hot Young Designers brought to you by Clout SA

Njano by moea design

Design a restaurant space which takes a minimalistic approach to a traditionally maximalist African craſt. Use beads and beadwork as the driving motif for form, repetition and collective structure. 

The Best Bar In The City

As a catalyst for connection and networking, Decorex Africa aims to facilitate the interactions which lead to extraordinary ideas and innovative design. Where better to do that than at the most exciting bar in each city? 

After years absent of in-person interaction, we want to create a space which allows for collaboration and leads to better, brighter ideas. Meet fellow designers, vendors and sponsors from the industry and expand your imagination.

Designer Spotlight by Frans Alexander

Each year Decorex Africa shines the spotlight on a highly acclaimed designer or design studio to participate in the exhibition as Feature Designer of the Year. This honor is bestowed on a designer or design studio in recognition of their consistent quality creative output, originality and sustained access as they take center stage as the Designer Spotlight. 

The Garage of the Future – Progressed by Audi

Let’s embrace a proactive attitude towards the future. You’re headed home in your fully electric vehicle, and as you pull up to your garage, you are welcomed by a cladded tunnel formed in engineered materials by Cosentino. You drive in over Quartz Carpet, park, and plug in your vehicle to charge, to be greeted by soundwaves of 4th Industrial Revolution T-pop.

The garage is not just a haven for your car anymore. It will become a vehicle showcase and experience space, replete with designer seating – in this case a lounging area by Donald Nxumalo Interior Design – that makes for heaven for modern metalheads.

For the show, leading automotive design of the future is also included, and the new Audi RS e-tron GT will be on display. It’s the future of electric mobility with a focus on design, performance, digitalisation and sustainability.
