South African creativity is boundless, and comes in many forms. It finds its way into everything from functional or decorative products to social change, sustainable impact and visual communication. Our people’s creative thinking solves healthcare problems with adaptive design, supports impoverished communities to reinvigorate cultural skills, transforms industries by using innovative technology and looks to the future with ground-breaking virtual reality.

Because of such creative diversity, we have divided the projects, products, ideas and experiences that make up 100 Beautiful Things into five themes: Designing with Compassion, Sustainable Design, Future Thinking, South African Essence and Simply Beautiful. Join us in celebrating them all.
