With the Johannesburg installation of Decorex taking place from the 8th – 12th August 2018, title sponsors, Plascon, have a little surprise in store for their award-winning stand. This time the paint purveyors will be featuring a beautiful cabinet designed by Afri-modern furniture designer, Sifiso Shange.
Sifiso will exhibit a piece from his Mina Nawe collection which celebrates the unity of love. Though unmistakably contemporary like all Sifiso’s pieces, the Mina Nawe cabinet is the perfect combination of modern African design and colour. Plascon Brand Ambassador and Colour Specialist, Claire Bond says, “We are thrilled to collaborate with a talented designer like Sifiso and believe his beautiful Mina Nawe cabinet is a wonderful addition to our Decorex Jo’burg stand.
Designed by leading Cape Town business curators and brand builders, Platform Creative Agency, the Plascon stand has been applauded for its soft, feminine curves where colour takes the stage to create a joyful experience. The Jo’burg installation will feature a soft melange of blues and greens like Monsoon Lagoon (G5-E1-1), Julianne Jade (G5-E2-1) and Mellow Blue (B4-C2-2) . Claire says, “We want our visitors to feel the emotional and physical release on their mind and body. Blues and greens offer serenity whilst the smatterings of earthy mushrooms like You’re My Sweetie (O4-C2-2) offer stability. These delectable shades are mature yet flirty and nostalgic. Coupled with the open space design and rounded walls – the colour selection adds beautifully to the suggestions of elegant living spaces.”
The extremely popular ‘So Me’ competition which was rolled out at Decorex Durban and Cape Town will also feature at the Jo’burg exhibition. As with all things Plascon, the competition places the individual at the heart of the painting and colour process by offering guests the chance to survey a series of rooms, choose their favourite looks through dedicated iPads. One of five finalists will win two 20 litre tins of paint in one of Plascon’s most loved brands.
The Plascon team will also be doing tester pots and offering one-on-one colour expert sessions for those looking for on-trend advice and inspiration. Claire says, “We urge all colour, paint and design devotees to come and visit us for some inspiration and perhaps even a little life-changing colour therapy.”
