CBI, CCDI and SEDA launch ‘Development by Design’
At 100% Design in Johannesburg from August 6-10,´Development by Design', a joint project by CBI, CCDI and SEDA, is presenting the exhibition SPHERE, showcasing 16 South African companies.
SPHERE brings together the best in South African design. A curated selection of products that stand out because of their sculptural qualities, form and scale. Made of materials with texture, touched by the hand of the maker. Natural and sustainable materials have been used to create these statement pieces for the interior.
The ´Development by Design´ project enables small and medium businesses in South Africa to develop and grow. Nearly 30 entrepreneurs are participating in this project, taking their design studio, workshop or manufacturing company to the next level, and onwards to the export market. The project is an initiative of The Dutch Centre for the Promotion of Imports from Developing Countries (CBI), and their local partners, the CCDI and SEDA. Together, these business support organisations promote South African entrepreneurs at both local and international trade fairs.
SPHERE by Development by Design can be found in Hall 1 Stand F21 at 100% Design from 6 – 10 August 2015 at Gallagher Convention Centre, Johannesburg. 100% Design South Africa is a high-end curated showcase of the most inspirational designs and designers.
