Your hot guide to Decorex Cape Town

Your hot guide to Decorex Cape Town
Decorex Cape Town

With so much to see and all of it unmissable, we asked Decorex Africa’s Executive Creative Director Bielle Bellingham where to begin when planning a trip to Decorex Cape Town, running from 6-9 June at the CTICC. She’s shared her tips for what’s new and now below, but her best advice is to come back again and again to take in everything – especially because there are different live talks and demos each day.

This year’s event, together with show partners Plascon, Samsung, Lexus and the City of Cape Town, is set to be a knockout. A day ticket gives you access to a slew of exciting installations and features alongside displays by more than 230 of the most dynamic and creative companies on the continent. For architecture and interior design professionals, free online pre-registration grants a four-day multi-pass.

Download the dedicated new Decorex app from the App Store or Google Play Store to help you plan your Decorex experience, making it smoother and more efficient. For now, here’s Bellingham’s quick inside track:

 

3D-printing for the nation

In a bid to democratise 3D-printing, an extra-large industrial 3-D printer from Amnova will be extruding objects right before your eyes. Embrace the vision for the nation by listening to Amnova’s Future Talk.

 

Build it and they will come

Come and watch a sustainable, low-cost house being built live at the show over the course of four days. It’ll be made entirely from sandbags. That’s UBU for you!

 

Waste not

Sit on new wonders created entirely from trash and conceived by Circular Squared’s genius designer Heath Nash while you listen to the daily schedule of thought makers gracing the Future Talks stage in the Future of Design area.

 

Parking off

A new parklet designed by Urban Think Tank will be unveiled at the show. Come and celebrate its debut before it moves afterwards to a new home in the Mother City.

 

Max out on MaXhosa

Global darling and iconic SA decor and fashion brand MaXhosa Africa showcases a fresh new line in a dedicated display. Look forward to the launch of its outdoor furniture collection, which is bound to be as dynamic as its vibrant fashion and homeware. As an added bonus, MaXhosa is mounting a lounge concept for the show’s VIP guests that members of the public will be able to view.

100% Hospitality

There are hotels and then there are multi-starred monuments to great hospitality that you’ll never want to leave. For 100% Hospitality, Belgotex will create a spectacular hotel-inspired scheme. To bring this to life, the floor coverings brand will collaborate with HesseKleinloog.

Dynamic design duo

The stand-out talents of celebrated interior design duo Andrea Kleinloog and Megan Hesse will be revealed at their Anatomy Design stand, at 100% Hospitality by Belgotex X HesseKleinloog, and Megan’s trends presentation on the Future Talks stage.

Africanismo

Local concept store Merchants on Long will mount an African-themed exhibition that promotes the best of what our continent has to offer.

Collabs for the ages

Designers and brands from across the country such as Okhre Collective, JH Interiors, Anna Correira, Mezzanine, Artep Studio, Hocus Interiors and MINK Studio bring their visions to life in inspired collaborative exhibitions: the Decorex House by Private Property, Lexus Designer Pods, and Plascon Vibrant Harmony Designer Pods.

Emojis as design #inspo

Witness how emojis can form the foundation of a design concept at the Emoji Room Sets. Studio H will collaborate with Woolworths to create a response to the apple emoji, Popstrukt will reference the sweet/candy emoji, and Lalegno teams up with Rumour Has It interior brand architecture and RHi Curate to put the feather and hut emojis in a new light.
