MiMiC. 2019 African Designer Collection premiers in Antwerp


MiMiC. Consulting curates a collection of unique pieces from Southern Africa. Founded in 2017 by Interior Designer, Tamsin Stedall, the collection comprises lifestyle pieces with a different design ethic. The objective of the initiative is to identify exceptional design and craftsmanship from Southern Africa and promote those within Europe.

During the month of July 2019, exclusive pieces from the 2019/2020 AFRICAN DESIGNER COLLECTION by MiMiC. will be on exhibit at 55 Leopoldstraat, Antwerp, Belgium at the prestigious Keteleer Gallery | Next Door.

The 2019 African Designer Collection comprises collectible pieces from some of the most renowned and recognised contemporary designers from South Africa including David Krynauw, Ronel Jordaan, John Vogel, Norman Meyer & Abrie Von Wielligh (Meyer Von Wielligh), Laurie Wiid Van Heerden (Wiid Design) as well as Andile Dyalvane, Haldane Martin, Greg Truen & Stefan Antoni (SAOTA) for Indigenus Planters.

The collection features oversized planters, juxtaposing glass reinforced concrete, african iroko timber and cork; solid wood furniture in combination with cord, leather and luxury upholstery detailing; ceramic, wood & 100% merino wool decorative items as well as a selection of striking timber lighting.

Influenced by the cultural diversity and richness of landscape that can be found in Southern Africa, the designs emanate a sense of bold empowerment whilst portraying an appreciation of form and function.

Each piece creates an exquisite impression and can be used as a focus point or coupled with others to assume an attractive configuration within any space, be it residential, corporate or hospitality.

‘ An exquisite collection of unique pieces with a different design ethic’

‘Each year we review our collection and update it with the most recent creations from our associated designers, with a focus on natural materials, quality of workmanship, organic design and community conscious processes.
We continually search for distinct contemporary objects with a subtle African aesthetic. Each of the pieces within our collection represents our ethos for organically influenced design and exceptional craftsmanship using the highest quality natural materials. This year we will be promoting our 2019 selection as part of a series of Gallery Exhibitions throughout Europe.’ – Tamsin Stedall
