Southern Guild makes its Design Miami/ Basel debut with a collection of the most interesting collectible design being produced in the country. A group of 10 designers, sponsored by the South African Department of Trade and Industry (dti), will travel with the gallery to attend the fair, introducing the international market of collectors, media and fair visitors to the dynamism and depth of South Africa’s rich craftsmanship.

The collection brings together the work of 17 leading designers and artists, including Gregor Jenkin and William Kentridge, Dylan Lewis, Porky Hefer, Bronze Age, Conrad Botes, Brett Murray, Dokter and Misses, and Michaella Janse van Vuuren.

The dynamic range of pieces include a hanging leather pod that continues Porky Hefer’s exploration of human-scale bird’s nests; a hand-painted solid wooden cabinet by young studio Dokter and Misses, referencing Burkina Faso mud dwellings and investigating a contemporary African aesthetic; an abstract console by celebrated artist Dylan Lewis, inspired by South Africa’s monumental landscape; and a selection of pieces from the ongoing collaboration between Gregor Jenkin and William Kentridge, motivated by the torn paper works of this world-renowned artist.
