Umcebo Design has been informed that its submission has been shortlisted for possible inclusion in the Official Programme for World Design Capital Cape Town 2014. The final selection wil be made in November, 2013.

“Our submission is on the theme Bridging Divides and centres around community workshops using recycled material to create a collection of chandeliers based on the propotype design (pictured),” says Robin Opperman, Creative Director of Umcebo Design.

The chandeliers will form part of prominent public spaces in Cape Town during the 2013 World Design Capital period and will hopefully be involved in other events.
