Design Joburg, featuring Rooms on View, is thrilled to announce the Architect’s Gallery. This highly considered feature will be curated by eminent Joburg architect, designer and artist Shaun Gaylard of Blank Ink. The Architect’s Gallery will showcase some of SA’s finest architectural projects from a selection of leading architectural minds.
“Architecture and objets d’art form not only the background of our lives but, if designed well, intrinsically form part of the emotional and aesthetic experience of our spaces,” says Gaylard, who will be using this thinking to inform his execution of this central feature at the show.
Visitors can expect to be immersed in groundbreaking architectural projects that include both commercial and residential, presented in a printed format, as well as some displays of 3-D models. This will all be arranged in a considered yet minimalist gallery-type exhibit that will give some special insights into each project.
Shaun Gaylard’s vision for the display includes a bespoke carpet created using an urban plan drawing by architectural firm StudioMAS and crafted by Belgotex. Bespoke furniture for the feature will be courtesy of Pretoria based multi-disciplinary design studio Luvarre. The displays will be enhanced using lighting by Streamlight whilst the bespoke printing for the feature is by Silvertone International.
The list of architectural studios exhibiting are:
- Boogertman & Partners
- Osmond Lange
- Silvio Rech and Lesley Carstens
- W Design Architecture Studio
Design Joburg takes place at the Sandton Convention Centre, from 25 – 27 May 2018.
