Once again a few students jumped on the train to head down to Sydney Indesign.
Racing around on the free buses to where the showrooms were scattered throughout Alexandria, Surry Hills, Chippendale and other surrounding suburbs. They opened their doors for an exciting program of product launches, guest speakers, collaborations and parties.
The showrooms displayed the most beautiful array of textures and colours where we were able to talk all things design with the staff and other budding designers.
A few of our highlights were….
Furniture and homeware haven, Planet, celebrated individuality, texture and beautiful materials by hosting noted potter Kris Coad, demonstrating hand-throwing porcelain techniques as a catalyst to discuss the process of design. We also were able to make fabric badges from vintage Japanese fabrics, which we proudly wore all day.
The Reece showroom was transformed into a Swiss Alps paradise, this is where some of us had a memorable experience meeting (and had a photo taken) with the amazing Shayna Blaze and Darren Palmer.
The Galleria hosted installations of breathtaking innovation and technical sophistication from numerous design studios. Here we took part in entering competitions such as designing a tile pattern for Surface Gallery.
At Inlite, we were overwhelmed by the sizable creations of Christopher Boots. Accompanying the product was the new-look creative campaign, a titillating series of provocative photography inspired by ancient, mystical gods and goddesses. Here Arna found her new home in an amazing inflatable gold room featuring more oversized lighting.
Unfortunately we weren’t able to be apart of whole 3 days and visit everyone but the day was filled with so much fun, food, wine and inspiration.
