• MBOISA 2016

    How do you perceive beauty? Challenging notions of beauty in design, MBOISA is Design Indaba's annual endeavour to name the Most Beautiful Object in South Africa.

Each year Design Indaba initiates a search for the Most Beautiful Object in South Africa. This year the exhibition of 10 objects, nominated by a select panel of curators, will tour three cities: Johannesburg, Durban and Cape Town. The travelling exhibition will culminate in the announcement of the winner of MBOISA 2016 at Design Indaba Festival in Cape Town.
