Southern Guild at Design Miami 2017

Southern Guild, the dynamic and progressive South African gallery, returns to exhibit at Design Miami 2017.

Its highly curated exhibitions have redefined global perceptions of African design and escalated its value on the international market. Here’s all you need to know about Southern Guild at Design Miami 2017.

Design Miami is the global forum for design and brings together the most influential collectors, gallerists, designers, curators and critics from around the world in celebration of design culture and commerce. Southern Guild at Design Miami 2017For Design Miami 2017, Southern Guild presents a collection that celebrates a dynamic African design vernacular, layered with historical and cultural references, echoes of the natural world and political disillusion. With works by Andile Dyalvane, Dokter and Misses, John Vogel and Justine Mahoney – to name but a few – the pieces have a clarity of focus distilled to graphic silhouettes, compelling texture and the interplay of colour and form.

This body of work expresses a conviction that the voice of this continent is the most vital and relevant inspiration. Curated exhibitions, fertile collaborations and strategic partnerships have redefined perceptions of African design and established Southern Guild as a relevant and groundbreaking player in the global design arena.

At the centre of everything Southern Guild does is the design itself, which avoids trends and collapses the borders between craft and design, “First” and “Third” Worlds, designer and manufacturer. It tells the story of a new Africa in a myriad different ways, one piece at a time.
