Southern Guild was established in 2008 to provide a platform for collectable, limited-edition South African design, showcasing work by the most recognized names in the country and cultivating the careers of emerging contemporary designers.
South African design is artisanal, hand-made and cerebral and our designers work in a very personal, exploratory way, with deep cultural relevance and little interest in passing trends. Southern Guild encourages collaboration and discourse, which aims to stimulate and provoke the local design industry and has become a benchmark for quality and originality. The gallery cohesively and comprehensively showcases the most important contemporary design from South Africa, at the best fairs around the world, with the ongoing support of ArcelorMittal South Africa.
The Department of Trade and Industry has a mission to support and facilitate the development of sustainable enterprises and to promote investment, competitiveness and export opportunities through effective and accessible programmes.
“A dynamic industrial, globally competitive South African economy, characterized by inclusive growth and development, decent employment and equity, built on the full potential of all citizens”.
