144 Hours of Design exhibits the furniture of students graduating in Furniture Design and Technology from Melbourne’s RMIT.
October 28th, 2011
A new student exhibition, running from 8 to 12 November, showcases the work of the talented soon-to-be graduates of the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology (RMIT).
Maeva, Chris Shaw
Each student, whether part time or full time, has studied the vast field of furniture design. The designers bring their mix of backgrounds to the studio: engineers, architects, diesel mechanics, graphic designers and school leavers all contributing their own skills and knowledge to the group. From material studies to construction and design, each student has progressed and developed their own individual style.
Foggara, Felicity Dessewffy
Future aspirations vary, with some students going on with further studies and others seeking work in the field.
The furniture produced is of a very high standard, demonstrating attention to detail and creativity through many challenging design briefs. Some pieces have already received accolades in the Fringe Furniture Festival and the Clarence Prize.
The running theme for both design briefs is the notion of meeting head-on with the problems of today: sustainability and innovation. The beautifully designed and well-crafted pieces are only a glimpse of what is to come from this collection of furniture makers.
