In line with Design Indaba’s commitment to promoting unique, high-quality South African design, the new Design Indaba Innovation Award seeks to encourage Design Indaba Expo exhibitors to push their own creative limits to a whole new level.
The inaugural award went to Durban-based designer Andy Cartwright of Andy Cartwright Homeware for his modular product system, “Korol”.
Korol uses geodesic mathematical formulas to create star-shaped components that, when connected at their points, can form anything from tea light candleholders to lampshades and stools to enormous wall murals. The Korol system is made of 100% recycled polypropylene.
