Design Joburg



19 – 21 May 2022

South Africa’s edgiest design and décor show, in its most Afropolitan city, is back!
Together, Candice Berman Gallery and Magicode will present a booth at Design Joburg.
Together they will be translating concepts into something tangible
Candice Berman Gallery is thrilled to be presenting TWO artists this year:

Design Joburg is an undoubted highlight on the design and décor calendar and with good reason. Now in its fourth year, this full-scale show is a polished showcase of where interiors and design, fashion, architecture and sustainable design practices are in South Africa, where new talents are putting their energy and what the future holds for design as a vehicle of change and drive in Southern Africa and further afield.

As much a cerebral as a social event, Design Joburg is an opportunity to grab a glass of bubbly, mingle with local talents and fellow cognoscenti and most importantly to get up close and personal with some of the most exciting and stimulating creative endeavours happening in the décor and design arenas right now.

The three-day event is an opportunity to enjoy an intense design download at your leisure. Coordinate your visits with client and friends meet-and-greets and dip in and out to the events that appeal. Iconic Johannesburg architectural and interiors projects will be open to event-goers with a series of designer-led walk-arounds, while insightful talks spanning fashion, current design trends, the relevance of sustainability in the 21st century and understanding design in the Metaverse will provide intense food for thought for industry members and the public alike. A focus on software developments in the interior, architecture and design worlds will also be a strong focus of this year’s show, and guests can expect to be brought up to speed with a host of cutting-edge tech-focused industry developments.

An innovation from 2021, the Design Joburg Collective is now a permanent feature and must-do for the local décor world’s decision makers and devotees alike. A collection of décor-focused events hosted as a ‘fringe’ to the show, Collective returns to Kramerville and 44 Stanley (with further districts to be announced). The Collective includes Lexus drivebys and on-foot walk-arounds, industry gatherings and brand launches, studio showcases, trend talks, workshops and importantly, a chance for lovers of décor and design to gather again and immerse themselves in the world they love.
