A curated marketplace for the most refined and forward thinking design, WallpaperSTORE* will host a pop-up in Cape Town in September, just in time for the opening of Zeitz MOCAA. Visitors to the museum and design devotees can purchase a commemorative token from the highly curated selection of covetable collectables.

In this collaboration with The Guild Group, the WallpaperSTORE* pop-up will be housed at GUILD in the group’s new flagship space at the V&A Waterfront’s Silo district. Expect some of the best names in the business: including, but not limited to Fornasetti, Artek, Bitossi, Tom Dixon, Georg Jensen, Hay, L’Objet, Nousaku and Vitra.

‘We want to shift the perception of African design to one of belonging. Showcasing this WallpaperSTORE* selection, alongside our own offering at GUILD Store, continues our mission to place Africa and its creativity in the global frame.’ – Trevyn McGowan, co-founder and CEO of The Guild Group

The GUILD Store, curated by Tammy Tinker, is a bold and exciting design platform with a strong emphasis on collaboration. The product mix includes the GUILD collab collection, which features work by African stars like Porky Hefer, Conrad Botes, Andile Dylvane, Rich Mnisi and Buki Akib, alongside exclusive products from the likes of renowned ceramist Clementina van der Walt, design books, custom Converse sneakers by local artist Dada Khanyisa and a selection of international lust-haves from local stores Maison Mara and Bastille.

WallpaperSTORE* is the world’s first curated design store; a fitting, and complimentary match to The Guild Group’s local and international design focus.

The WallpaperSTORE* pop-up will be open between mid-September and early December, with a special selection of GUILD Store products focusing on exclusive African designs that fit the Wallpaper* aesthetic. This African ‘Capsule Collection’ will also be sold online, internationally, by WallpaperSTORE* at the same time. Visit store.wallpaper.com for a peek inside its creative wares.
