V&A Waterfront

V&A Waterfront

Platform was commissioned by the V&A Waterfront to design and curate a fresh festive-season experience that would be relevant to a contemporary South Africa. Aligning with the Waterfront’s ambit to be a sustainable, environmentally conscious business that supports local designers and makes a positive economic impact on local enterprises, we called on South African makers and designers to create large-scale installations using recycled and up-cycled materials, bringing awareness to the vitality of the planet while celebrating African handcraft. 

The attention-grabbing campaign made a lasting impact: it highlighted the importance of producing a relevant, inclusive African narrative, and afforded new income opportunities for the communities of makers involved.
