99 Juta, a new design building

New Braamfontein development, 99 Juta, is the dream concept of Consolidated Urban, Play Braamfontein and Dokter and Misses.

Dokter and Misses are behind the interiors and fittings and with a showroom occupying one half of the brand new South African design centered building’s first floor - and architect firm Local Studio behind the refurbishment. That’s the best of design and concept under one roof.

99 will now be the new home to local product designers Joe Paine, Mash.T Design Studio, Monique Vee and The Urbanative. And alongside these permanent fixtures, a programme of design-centric pop-ups will run.

If you stop by you’d catch a glimpse of the current featured work of woodmasters Houtlander, Common Threads, a textile exhibition curated by The Ninevites, and ceramic showcase titled 99½ Vases. It’s all a space of wonder for those that love to see the growth of design and space concepts.

Meet the tenants:

Doker and Misses This product and furniture design duo has been operating out of Johannesburg since 2007. They are known for their imaginative and weird design language that blends graphic and sculptural forms. In addition to their new showroom the latest run of Moonjellies will be showcased on 99’s top floor. Moonjelly 2.0 is a set of ethereal lights that blur the line between sculpture and function that include both standing and hanging variations. Their Dali-esque glass shades are blown from recycled glass by Swazi expert blowers at Ngwenya Glass.

Apartment 2B Apartment 2B is a collective shared furniture, homeware accessories and art showroom. The product design element of this collective includes Mpho Vackier of ”TheUrbanative”, Thabisa Mjo of “Mash.T Design Studio” and Monique Van Zyl of “Monique Vee”. Apartment 2B is fanatical about home grown design that tells a story whilst linking to the contemporary client. They also boldly explore developing perspectives of current African Design.

Joe Paine Joe Paine is a product and furniture designer from Johannesburg aiming to produce original products that are both interesting visually and conceptually, as they are to use. Born from processes found within the industrial vernacular of Johannesburg and of its spirit, the products can be both hard-edged and delicate in one breath.
