The Department of Trade, Industry and Competition (the dtic) is running a furniture design competition that provides an opportunity for new designers to establish themselves.

Dtic’s furniture design competition gains traction

The furniture design sector is one which young designers from less affluent areas could not always easily enter. Winning this competition could open a whole new world for young, upcoming creatives.

According to a press release by the dtic, South Africa needs to produce designers who are proactive problem-solvers and create appropriate solutions that take cognisance of social, cultural, environmental, and economic factors. “We need to use our skills as critical thinkers to inspire others and highlight the value of design as an economical nation builder and agent of change. When we achieve this, we unlock the true innovative and entrepreneurial potential of all South Africans,” says the dtic.
