Continuing to expand and diversify, Whatiftheworld have now added a design showroom to their books. Returning to the original Whatiftheworld Hope Street venue in Cape Town, the showroom gives customers easy access to engaging with the designs beyond the organisation's website.
The furniture, fashion, accessories and other design products on sale are courtesy of some of South Africa's most exciting young designers including Blasoen, Christopher Strong, Missibaba and the Whatiftheworld design collective - Adriaan Hugo, Liam Mooney, Lyall Sprong and Xandre Kriel. The latter also recently participated in Rooms On View by creating bespoke bench designs for the South African House room by Laureen Rossouw.
Coming up in August, the Whatiftheworld Design Showroom will be hosting Tuis Nywerheid: A Bake Sale, featuring chocolates, cakes and other sweet designer treats. In October look out for Number Three, the third of Whatiftheworld's annual events dedicated to subterranean designers. Website: www.whatiftheworld.com.
