The winners of 2011’s Annual Manual: A Guide to Australian Design Now were announced at Sydney’s Object: Australian Centre for Craft and Design on Friday 8 April.
April 27th, 2011
Thomas Llewellyn and Daniel To and Emma Aiston have been named joint winners of 2011’s Annual Manual: A Guide to Australian Design Now.
Their designs were picked from a pool of 120 nominated entries to receive a shared exhibition in the Project Space of Object Gallery in 2012, with Object also helping to finance new work from the artists for next year’s exhibition.
Melbourne-based RMIT graduate Llewellyn’s award-winning entry Drawing Board allows 2 people to sit and exchange ideas at a shared table through drawing. Drawing becomes a tool for design and social interaction through a process of collaboration.
“Thomas has created a conceptual piece that sends an idea out into the world,” said jury member Dan Honey, Co-founder of Office for Good Design and Creative Producer of the State of Design Festival.
To and Aiston – better known as Daniel Emma – won for D.E., a collection of 7 desk accessories well-regarded for their simplicity and purity of form.
Jury member Kate Rhodes, Curator of RMIT’s Design Hub, Creative Director of the State of Design Festival and Co-founder of the Office for Good Design described D.E. as “a collection of refined, quiet and inspiring pieces.”
Annual Manual: A Guide to Australian Design Now! is on display in Object’s Main Gallery until 19 June 2011. See images from the exhibition’s opening night here.
