Design Indaba 2012 Expo in Photos


The Design Indaba Expo 2012 had the Cape Town International Convention Centre teeming with creatives, design lovers and innovative thinkers from Friday 2 to Sunday 4 March, 2012.

This year’s exhibition featured a variety of local, forward-thinking stall-holders at stands that carried the A Better Future Through Design theme. From the impressive 2014 World Design Capital display by Cape Town Partnership (a revolutionary exhibit composed entirely of 16 800 pencils), to the talents of Cape Town College of Fashion Design students, and an interactive holographic in the centre of the exhibition hall, a futuristic feel prevailed.

Cape Town Tourism’s Capture Your Unexpected Cape Town sticker mural, featuring some of the city’s most valuable undiscovered gems, attracted plenty of visitors, who were further encouraged to participate by the opportunity to win a Nikon 500 Coolpix camera.

Here are a few  images of Cape Town’s premier creative event:

From fashion to jewellery and abstract art, the 2012 Design Indaba Expo brought its theme, Design for a better future, to life.

The 2012 Design Indaba Expo featured only home-grown talents with a strong sense of design for a better future.
