The Guild Group and Wallpaper* joins forces to celebrate ‘finely formed and forward-thinking’ design on 14 September by launching a WallpaperSTORE* pop-up in Cape Town – just in time for the much-anticipated opening of Zeitz MOCAA.
This exciting collaboration will be housed in the GUILD Store – part of The Guild Group’s new flagship space at the V&A Waterfront’s Silo district. The exclusive offering brings together some of the best international names in the business, including Fornasetti, Tom Dixon, Georg Jensen, Hay, L’Objet, Nousaku and Vitra, among many others, all set to be showcased alongside work by local stars such as Porky Hefer, Conrad Botes, Andile Dyalvane and Rich Mnisi.
As an adventurous design platform with a history of strong creative pairings, The Guild Group’s partnership with Wallpaper* makes complete sense. ‘We want to shift the perception of African design to one of belonging’, says Trevyn McGowan, co-founder and CEO of The Guild Group. ‘Showcasing this WallpaperSTORE* selection alongside our own offering at GUILD Store continues our mission to place Africa and its creativity in the global frame.’
The pop-up will run between mid-September and early December, with a special selection of GUILD Store products focusing on limited-edition African designs that fit the Wallpaper* aesthetic. This capsule collection will also be sold online through WallpaperSTORE* at the same time.
