A new group show of new work at Southern Guild will present experimental pieces by a diverse group of designers. Looking outside of their core stable of designers for this show, and worked closely with each one to channel their practice in new directions – pushing ceramicists to work in bronze, surface designers to go sculptural, and fine artists to make furniture. The challenge is aimed at fitting a decade of ground pushing work and the extensive marketing work of outstanding African work to the world.

Extra Ordinary features both emerging and established designers outside of Southern Guild’s core stable. They include fashion designer Rich Mnisi, ceramic artists Zizipho Poswa and Madoda Fani, sculptors Daniella Mooney and Stanislaw Trzebinski, and newcomers such as 3D illustrator Ferdi B. Dick.

The exhibition includes furniture, lighting, sculpture and jewellery.

Extra Ordinary runs from 14 February to 14 April 2018.
