Xigera is so proud to showcase the world’s largest collection of Southern African art and design, in collaboration with Cape Town’s acclaimed Southern Guild Gallery.

Our ‘living gallery’ of bespoke works has been commissioned exclusively for the property by Africa’s hottest young artists, including Adam Birch, Madoda Fani, Porky Hefer, Otto du Plessis, Stanislaw Trzebinski and many more.

The lodge’s design has been conceptualised by Toni Tollman, Philip Fourie and Anton de Kock, who have collaborated with Southern Guild in a game-changing design partnership. Based in Cape Town, Southern Guild commissions, produces and exhibits contemporary collectable design by the most compelling talents in South Africa. 

Our collection showcases the very best of modern African design and talent, reflecting a new found confidence and appreciation for African design around the world. The design team has challenged these extraordinary artists to go beyond their natural comfort zones. 

The bespoke assemblage of pieces has taken 18 months to produce and we are delighted to share a first glimpse of these exceptional pieces...
