Woodbender in action at Open Design Cape Town

7 September, 2015

Open Design Cape Town Festival is a 12-day city-wide festival that celebrates the values and impact of design and innovation as key drivers of economic, environmental and social development.

The Open Design Cape Town Festival is positioned as the leading showcase of how human-centred design can improve living conditions, build human capital and drive job creation. Open Design has been running for two years and has expanded from one room in the Cape Town City Hall to incorporating the entire venue as well as the Watershed at the Waterfront.

Woodbender took the opportunity to participate in and support Open Design Cape Town this year by means of furniture sponsorship at both venues. We participated in the following way:

• We sponsored a mix of chairs, bar stools, tables and children’s furniture in the café at Town Hall.
• We sponsored chairs in the cinema space at the Watershed.
• We sponsored a mixture of chairs, bar stools, tables and children’s furniture in the Jubilee Hall at the Watershed.
• We exhibited our “people and process” images.
• We exhibited our Chelsea Showwood and Footstool at the iconic furniture design display at the Watershed.
