Following the success of Leon at CCXIX’s 12 Rooms Exhibition, we’ve teamed up with St Leger & Viney to launch 12 IZITULO.

 We’re challenging student and emerging designers to come up with an original chair design… anything from easy chairs and barstools to dining and occasional seating.

 20 designs will be chosen by our esteemed panel of judges and following an interview process, 12 finalists will then be chosen. These 12 finalists will see their designs come to life and be part of an exhibition at the Leon at CCXIX showroom in Woodstock.

 Our judges will then choose the winning design, as well as our second and third placed winners, who will be announced at a glittering event in September.

 Our panel of judges include Leon at CCXIX Creative Directors Pim Verdoorn and Ilaria Guidi, St Leger & Viney Marketing and Product Manager Peter Gordon and interior designer Donald Nxumalo.

 Chair designs should incorporate one or more of the following materials: woven, timber, fabric, metal, fibre-glass, wool, leather and hides.

 DEADLINE for entries is 16 June 2017 and entry forms are downloadable here or by calling 021 447 1304.
