Gregor Jenkin presents a broad spectrum of work, at once nostalgic and highly contemporary, offering a snapshot of his studio as it is today.

Gregor Jenkin is widely lauded as one of South Africa’s foremost designers. A self-proclaimed ‘maker of things’, his interest in engineering, intervention and re-imagining has shaped unique and storied pieces and a pared-down vernacular that is at once nostalgic and highly contemporary. The simplicity, beauty and range of his work is the result of a thoughtful, steadfastly lo-tech process that is part engineering, part sculpture.

His solo show at Southern Guild presents a broad spectrum of work that provides visitors with a snapshot of his studio as it is today. New work inspired by the incidental shapes of heritage steel salvaged from Cape Town’s V&A Waterfront’s Silo District is shown alongside well-known furniture and subtly adjusted Jenkin classics.

Gregor was the first African designer to feature at Design Miami and has pieces in the permanent collection of the Philadelphia Museum of Modern Art.
