Equip yourself for the decades to follow - Decorex Cape Town doesn’t merely sit at the cutting edge of the now, it presents the future!

At this year’s show, Decorex Cape Town and Audi present the idea of a futuristic vehicle garage, which encapsulates an environment of luxury and modern interior design, conceptualised by international award-winning designer, Donald Nxumalo. And if that doesn’t electrify your interest, there’s a conceptual culinary exhibition by Studio H, live DJs playing at the Best Bar in the City, multiple foodie pop-ups within the country’s most significant pop-up of all, and a cooking theatre where star chefs show the flavour power of their menus to come. It’s not merely at the forefront, it’s the next wave.

If you’ve started to think: “This doesn’t sound like Decorex Cape Town!” then you’re beginning to understand the extent to which Decorex Africa has been reimagined! All this striking newness is combined with the decor and design solutions of tomorrow. Don’t just envision a living and entirely shoppable apartment, come and experience it at the show. It’ll be there, alongside key features showing what’s next, a Summit of African changemakers, and so, so, so much more, that you’re likely to need a few days to take it all in. Decorex Cape Town doesn’t sit at the cutting edge of the now, it presents the future. Equip yourself for the decades to follow!

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 Seamless Flooring, 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.
