The Collection is displayed on the 2nd level of the partially restored 37 Main Road, Green Point at the Cape Creatives venue.There is a delicious tension between the Beautiful Objects, in their pristine display-furniture, and the gritty interior of the house, which is missing carpets, ceiling boards and paint on the walls.
The Exhibition Collection launched at Design Indaba Expo in February this year and will show at a variety of prestigious venues and exhibitions. It is divided into the New Notions section, which features handmade objects fresh and new, and The Collection, representing the best of Western Cape craft in a variety of media and expressions. The items may be bought now, and collected in December, or the designers can be contacted for customised orders.
This is the second curated CCDI Exhibition Collection – the first Collection was launched in 2009, in response to a stream of requests for quality craft items to display in prominent settings. Many of the items are one-offs and the showcase supports the goal of the CCDI to ensure regular exposure of fine Western Cape craft and design products.
