Design Joburg Collective Summer Edition 2021

Thursday Oct 28 - Sunday Oct 31    
Showcasing leading African design brands, the annual Design Joburg is Africa's premium décor and design exhibition. In June 2021 a new iteration of the event, the Design Joburg Collective (DJC), was launched taking over the streets and showrooms of Joburg's design district Kramerville. After a successful debut, the Design Joburg Collective is back for summer with an even bigger event, spread over three neighbourhoods and four days.

The summer edition of Design Joburg Collective takes place from October 28 to 31 across three leading design districts; Kramerville, 44 Stanley and Victoria Yards, presenting a free design showcase extravaganza, complemented by great food and drinks, live music and an array of pop-up activations.

Mixing indoor and outdoor attractions, there's a festival-like atmosphere with live street art and food trucks, dozens of showroom exhibitions and a programme of free design talks by local industry leaders. At the summer edition of DJC the pop-ups promise to be bigger than ever with dedicated pavilions set up for specially curated design experiences.
