It’s been no secret that we have been working with the University of Pretoria on various projects over the past years. What you maybe do not know is that we don’t only supply furniture but exhibition walls as well.
Back in 2017 Mathews and Associates Architects approached Raw Studios to develop an exhibition system for the exciting new Javett Art Centre at the University of Pretoria. The brief was music to our ears and a chance to challenge ourselves. In the end, we in collaboration with Journeyman Collective designed and manufactured a walling system, which is suitable for the exquisite Art Centre but also true to our values. Wallspace™ is a sleek and minimalistic modular wall that is easy to use, move, adapt and a simple solution for most exhibitions and even office spaces.
The collaboration with Javett and the development of Wallspace™ left us feeling inspired, we mean, our white backdrop walls are being used to showcase some of South Africa’s most talented artists. The richness of the artworks’ colours contrasting with the white walls captures your imagination and takes you to a different world, outside of the busy Jacaranda City.
The Javett Art Centre is a tranquil space and a perfect destination to add to your to-do list if you are staying at home this holiday. Get some peace of mind and enrich your holiday with some of the best of local art and culture.
