One of the unique features of the 100% Design South Africa Preview Pavilion in Cape Town will be the showing of 100 Beautiful Things in celebration of World Design Capital's theme of Beautiful Spaces/Beautiful Things. All the objects chosen by 100% Design South Africa curator, Cathy O'Clery are designed, made and are in production in 2014 in South Africa.

Expect to see many of South Africa's well known designers and crafters as well as items in everyday use.

"From the workshops of the high-end studios to the crafters sitting on the pavements South Africans' creativity never ceases to astound me. Whether it is exquisitely crafted or a reflection of pop culture there is an extraordinary ability to make beauty in this country. 100 Beautiful Things highlights just some of what is out there now from humble organic paper mache to super complicated 3D printing," explains curator Cathy O'Clery.
