Cape Town was the World Design Capital for 2014. It wasn’t an obvious choice – this is not an overt product design city. Walking her streets will not grab you with conspicuous design brilliance. But looking between the lines, in the space between the products and the famous Table topped mountain, is a design space that is extraordinary, where citizens are reshaping the design of the city, where designers are creating not just great product, but great solutions, and where design is transformative, not just pretty.
This tour explores this core themes through a range of engagements with designers, from fashion through industrial through urban.
