Yinjispace collaborates with South African Designers to present a Design Business tour in Cape Town

In October 2023, ARRCC, SAOTA and OKHA hosted renowned Chinese design Platform, Yinjispace, on an exclusive educational business tour in Cape Town, South Africa. The tour group consisted of prominent Chinese property developers, architects, and interior designers who enjoyed a series of comprehensive masterclasses, covering various facets of design, including architecture, interior design, furniture and art.

The masterclasses were led by all sister companies: SAOTA, an international architecture studio, ARRCC, interior design studio, and OKHA, a luxury furniture and design studio. These industry giants opened their studios to share their invaluable insights and expertise, followed by tours of their completed projects nestled within and around Cape Town.

Yinjispace, in collaboration with these three studios, aims to shine a spotlight on Cape Town as a global design capital, positioning it at the forefront of the international design scene. In addition, Yinjispace has fostered partnerships with local designers and artists, including Southern Guild, Tiaan Meyer from Meyer & Associates, Zizipho Poswa, Andile Dyalvane, Stanislaw Trzebinski, and Porky Hefer, to enrich the tour with diverse creative perspectives and talents.

This event represents a milestone as it marks the first of its kind held by the private sector in the post-pandemic era. It has already gained substantial support and endorsement from key stakeholders, including the Cape Town municipal government, the Western Cape government, the Department of Trade and Industry, and the Department of Home Affairs.

By bringing together designers and creative minds from different corners of the world, Yinjispace is paving the way for cross-cultural collaboration, and greater tourism, ultimately promoting the exchange of ideas, artistry, and innovation between South Africa and China.
