At the recent Decorex Cape Town showcase, held from 16 to 19 June 2022, Clout/SA was invited to curate an exhibition of past and current designs by the various finalists and winners of the Nando’s Hot Young Designer (HYD) competition since its inception in 2016. The result was a bold and eclectic exhibition that featured a variety of furniture, lighting, and pattern designs. Many of these pieces were brought to life through various collaborations between emerging designers, established designers and makers, all initiated by Clout/SA.
