• Most Beautiful Object in South Africa 2018

    Join the search for South Africa's Most Beautiful Object in Design Indaba's annual competition and exhibition that challenges aesthetic sensibilities, asking - What is beauty?

Each year the country engages with the question of what constitutes beauty. While some may consider beauty an aspect of taste and others know it on sight, beauty becomes far more profound than a visual sensation when design attributes such as social significance, economic impact, usability, sustainability and even humour are thrown into the mix.
