The winners of the 2017 100% Design South Africa Awards have been announced, forming part of the show held from 9 – 13 August 2017 at the Gallagher Convention Centre in Johannesburg.
“The 100% Design Awards were conceived as a way to recognise and celebrate the best of the best in show,” says 100% Design South Africa Programme Director Cathy O’Clery. “It also serves as a way to encourage exhibitors to bring their A-game, which helps to elevate the show year after year!”
The awards were divided into eight categories, including South African Designer of the Year, which this year went to designer Gregor Jenkin, who unveiled a new collection of furniture pieces at this year’s event.
The winners of the remaining seven categories are:
Best Product Design: Gregor Jenkin for his fireplace
Best Textile Design: Design Team
Best Office Design: Raw Studios
Best Stand Design: Source IBA for the Afrotel
Best of 100% Talent: Kino
You’ll find a four-page spread focusing on Gregor and his new pieces, starting on page 132 in the latest issue of VISI (VISI 91). For more information about this year’s event, visit 100percentdesign.co.za.
