13 Days to go…

The Design Indaba Conference, now in its nineth year in Cape Town, was recently judged the best conference in the world and this year’s speaker line-up offers some of the hottest design and creative minds on the globe.

To make the event more accessible to students and other young creative minds aged under 25 years, we have introduced the YOUNG DESIGNERS SIMULCAST - a live broadcast from the main stage to a second auditorium seating up to 600 people. This will cost only R750 for three days compared to normal rates.

Design Indaba Conference (22-24 February 2006)

There’ll be inspiring and sometimes controversial input from numerous creative mavericks and prime movers, like Tom Dixon, who made his name with the "S" chair while moulding his reputation at Italian furniture designers Cappellini. He became head of international design at UK furniture retailer Habitat in 1999, and then set up his own company focusing on new applications for traditional materials.

Shigeru Uchida is known for interior works, furniture and urban planning in Japan and abroad. Some of his works are held in New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art and the San Francisco Museum of Art. He's currently a guest professor at Tokyo Zokei University.
