100% Hospitality

Visions of the future of hospitality will come to life at 100% Hospitality by Belgotex. The leading flooring manufacturer has partnered with Decorex Africa and invited Megan Hesse and Andrea Kleinloog of HK Studio – the renowned international interior design studio behind the Kruger Shalati Bridge House, Ardmore stores, the Durban Girls’ College Library and multiple Singita hospitality projects – and furniture brand Anatomy Design to design unique spaces that highlight hybrid and forward-looking approaches to hospitality design.

House installation

For the first time, The Decorex House brought to you by Private Property, will display high quality construction elements and the latest technology in a conceptual house installation.

More than just capturing the personality of the cars, Lexus invited the designers of the Lexus Designer Pods to test drive Lexus vehicles to draw inspiration and to base their distinctive concept space on one of the five ‘Making Luxury Personal’ pillars: Authentic, Refined, Engaging, Imaginative, and Omotenashi (a Japanese expression describing concepts of hospitality as well as mindfulness).
