About

"Mud Dauper" is a sleeping pod, woven from Kooboo cane and lined with a leather cushion. It is based on Porky Hefer's iconic human-sized nests, that are a result of his in-depth study into the weaver bird’s nest-building skills, made relevant for a human audience. Making use of traditional techniques and crafts that focus on the hand rather than machinery, Porky’s work ensures that age-old skills are preserved and kept relevant in a modern age. He has had numerous solo presentations of his work, including at New York gallery R & Company, the inaugural London Design Biennale and this year’s Design Miami/Basel, where Southern Guild and SFA Advisory co-presented his acclaimed project Endangered to benefit the Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation.

About The Maker

Southern Guild

View Profile
Southern Guild has spearheaded the high-end design category in Africa, propelling its artist-designers to make spirited, challenging and complex work. Its highly curated exhibitions have redefined global perceptions of African design and escalated its value on the international market. Since being founded in 2008 as the sole gallery representing locally made limited-edition design, Southern Guild has birthed a new category for artists and designers in South Africa. In 2011 it became the first African gallery to present at Design Miami, and in 2015 it was the first to be featured at Christie’s London’s annual design auction. The gallery shows regularly at Design Miami in Basel and the US, at Design Days Dubai and the Collective Design Fair in New York, resulting in sales to leading architects, top collectors and respected museums. It has had work from its collections included in Vitra Design Museum’s “Making Africa” exhibition and “Beauty–Cooper Hewitt Design Triennial” at the Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum. Against the backdrop of a design industry that is still fairly young, Southern Guild gives designers a platform to reimagine what is possible. Founders Trevyn and Julian McGowan are embedded in the South African cultural landscape and play integral roles in guiding, advising and mentoring designers.
