Cape Town’s excellent Design Indaba conference returns at the end of February, bringing a selection of cutting edge speakers from across the fields of product design, graphics, architecture and more to South Africa’s sunny shores.
This year’s conference takes place from February 29 until March 2, and will then be followed by the Design Indaba Expo, presenting the very best of South African product design, from March 2-4.
The conference always promises to be one of the highlights on the design circuit. This year the organisers are being coy about their full speaker line-up, only releasing names on a week-by-week basis. Those confirmed so far include Dutch furniture designer Piet Hein Eek; London-based Clive van Heerden, director of Design-Led Innovation at Philips Design; US designer and social activist John Bielenberg; German scent expert Sissel Tolaas; and interactive artists/designers United Visual Artists, from the UK. More speakers will be announced over the coming weeks.
