Most Beautiful Object in South Africa 2016 Finalists!

MBOISA 2016

It’s our great pleasure to present the much-anticipated Most Beautiful Object in South Africa (MBOISA) 2016 finalists. Featuring a mixed bag of finalists including film, fashion and photography, the MBOISA finalists were nominated by a variety of South African design journalists and cultural commentators. Beauty is so subjective and sometimes the chosen objects can seem so arbitrary and unconventional. Fortunately, a short video was made of each finalist to better explain why the object has been nominated and what makes it beautiful.

“Every year Design Indaba invites the public to engage with the question of what constitutes beauty through the MBOISA award. More than just an object of visual delight, MBOISA encourage a wider definition of beauty – one that encapsulates attributes such as social significance, economic impact, usability, sustainability and even humour.” – Design Indaba

Interestingly, this year, MBOISA will be a travelling exhibition.  The Most Beautiful objects will be venturing to every part of the nation beginning at Rosebank Mall in Johannesburg, then Gateway Mall in Durban, and ending at the V&A Waterfront in Cape Town. The general population can vote in favour of the piece they feel signifies South Africa “beauty” best – that is, in whatever way you choose to interpret the concept of beauty.

Voting closes 19 February at noon. You can vote online or by SMS – see links below.
