100% Design: H&G’s Top 5

After launching in August 2014, 100% Design South Africa has become known as a high-end, curated showcase of the most inspirational designs and designers. Taking place alongside Decorex Joburg, 100% Design South Africa occurred from the 5th to the 9th of August this year at Gallagher Estate in Johannesburg. We’ve compiled our selection of top five stands from this year’s showcase.
