Our furniture design competition, in its 5th year, has evolved from a Western Cape Initiative to a National Competition under the new brand name "JigSaw". As the name suggests, it denotes the working together and synchronization of cross cultural design talents in SA with the aim to nurture and promote South African design talents and match them with the right manufacturers and target market, in order to invigorate the local furniture industry.
