Highveld Mall: Traditional beadwork patterns reflected in colored glass

Not only does the glass entrance of the Highveld Mall provide a unique and beautiful attraction, it also represents the colors and patterns used in traditional beadwork of the indigenous people of the Witbank area. The warm hues add depth and character to the shopping center, while the transparency of the glass gives the space light and sparkle. Finally, the Vanceva® True Blue color provides a vibrant pop of color against its warm background, making this building a truly unique and special landmark to the town.
