Quality, originality, luxury and accessibility are some of the essential ingredients of truly covetable design. It also happens to be the obvious features of the treasure trove of designer products that can be found at the new Pop Shop.
Inspired by Design Indaba, Pop Shop is a temporary store showcasing some of the finest locally produced designer wares, from ceramics, craft and furniture to fashion, jewellery and accessories. Though located along the so-called “Millionaire’s Mile” at the V&A Waterfront in Cape Town, the Pop Shop is unlike any of its neighbours in this space. A celebration of the diversity and inspiration of design that challenges aesthetic stereotypes, Pop Shop presents a product selection that is not only gorgeous, but also affordable, functional and oh-so local is lekker.
