As a longstanding supporter of South African creativity, Nando’s is once again playing its part in supporting homegrown talent. Together with Clout SA and the HUB, and as a part of the Nando’s Design Programme, an innovative and interactive pop-up is revealed this June.
This trade-focused exhibition, aptly named, ‘Right here, Right now!’, is an exciting component of the Decorex Cape Town Design Trail 2021, offering a full spectrum of local design and decor to interact with, all showcased under one roof.
In partnership with HUB, a platform that works to facilitate collaborative commercial opportunities for artisans and artists, Clout SA creative director Tracy Lee Lynch has curated an impressive selection of South African art and design to spotlight. Well-known industry names like Heath Nash and Wiid Designs have been paired up with established and budding talent like Pone Creatives and Bonga Jwambi.
See these and more at ‘Right here, Right now!’, hosted at HUB’s headquarters – Union House, 24 Commercial Street, Cape Town from 21-25 June. The first three days of the showcase are reserved for trade and media viewings by appointment only, while the last two days will be open to design learners and a limited number of members of the public.
