The Space, with our collective heart, works hard to support local design. Know that it is not just a handful of local designers you’re supporting when you shop our ranges – but also the good people who work for them. And their families. The knock-on effect of buying local filters into communities around SA and helps to build the strong, beautiful, more equitable South Africa of tomorrow.
In 2000, THE SPACE launched as a stand-alone Durban store with a simple quest: to partner with and showcase the work of like-minded, established designers, and to give a high-visibility platform to promising young designers wherever they came from; giving them a chance to break into the business and make a living out of their passion; even better, to thrive. Eight stores later – plus three SPACE MAN stores – we continue to open up more shop floor for local designers whose work belongs on the main stage.
