Design Joburg 2018 Hero 1800x800.jpg

KOHLER presents a fresh approach at Design Joburg

As Design Joburg, featuring Rooms on View, hots up as the exhibition showcasing the best décor and design from the African continent, KOHLER are thrilled to present an extraordinary exhibit imagined and curated by 3 leading lights of local design.


Kelly Adami of Copperleaf, Nelson Kubheka of Ommni Design and Sumayya Vally and Sarah de Villiers from Counterspace will transform 50m2 of the Sandton Convention centre into the go-to destination for the latest in bathroom inspiration.


As Kohler celebrates 145 years in the industry, each design studio will be incorporating the very latest Kohler sanware and taps into their feature. This will be a triple celebration of all that is Kohler in Africa with each presenting their personal interpretation of what and why they are drawn to Kohler’s bold and iconic design ethos.

The Counterspace duo, known for their creative exhibition and art installations, are planning a literal kaleidoscopic installation, working conceptually with the shapes and forms of basins in Kohler’s Artist Editions collection.

Copperleaf Studio’s Kelly Adami is aiming for a softer, more feminine approach in her creation of a luxe powder room with custom wall mural within a distinctive Art Deco inspired space.

Nelson Kubheka’s feature will very much be influenced by the rich minerals found in Africa like gold, copper and iron ore, creating an celebratory African experience including wallpaper inspired by bogolan motifs found in mud cloth.    


Visitors to the show will also be able to take in a showcase of designs from the finalists in the Dream in Kohler design competition.


Design Joburg, featuring Rooms on View takes place at the Sandton Convention Centre From 25 to 27 May 2018.
