Clout is bringing South African design to VDF x Ventura Projects in its launch of a furniture collection by emerging designer Khosi Leteba.
Project title: South African Designers prepare for Milan 2021
Clout is an initiative and online marketplace established by Nando’s in 2015, which exists to support and showcase designers from South Africa.
In 2019 it hosted Clout Industry Days at 100% Design South Africa, during which local designers were invited share their designs with industry experts for a chance to fabricate them.
As part of VDF x Ventura Projects, Clout will exhibit the winning furniture collection from the event by Khosi Leteba, which has now been brought to life in collaboration with Wiid Design Studio. Named Bodulo, the collection celebrates different elements of the Basotho lifestyle.
Clout’s showcase also spotlights the other winning concepts from the event, alongside works by the designers from Nando’s Hot Young Designer Talent Search.
Virtual Design Festival is the world’s first online design festival, taking place from 15 April to 30 June 2020.
Ventura Projects are exhibitions curated by Utrecht- and Milan-based Organisation in Design that cover the latest developments in contemporary design.
As part of VDF, Ventura Projects is presenting the work of 88 international designers, academies and brands. See work from all the VDF x Ventura Projects participants at dezeen.com/vdf/ventura-projects.
