Southern Guild

Cape Town

"South African design is artisanal, handmade and cerebral and our designers work in a very personal, exploratory way, with deep cultural relevance and little interest in passing trends."
- Trevyn McGowan

Southern Guild was founded in 2008 by Trevyn and Julian McGowan. Created as a forum for South African designers to challenge and support each other, it has grown a reputation for innovation, excellence and a truly fresh perspective.

The gallery cohesively and comprehensively showcases the most important contemporary design from Africa, at the leading limited edition design fairs around the world.

With the launch of their first permanent gallery in Woodstock, Cape Town, and collaborative exhibitions internationally, Southern Guild is continuing to provoke the most exciting collectible design the continent has to offer.
