Theme and Sponsor announced for installation series, held by Melbourne Indesign (formerly Saturday in Design).



March 19th, 2014

This year, the crowd-pulling installation series The Project, that has featured at Indesign: The Event (formerly Saturday in Design) since 2008, will reach all new heights with Major Sponsor Dulux now on board.

Coco Republic + Smeg + Futurespace, 2013

This is the first time Melbourne Indesign: The Event has brought a partner on board for The Project, which has been one of the most popular features of every Indesign event, attracting thousands of industry visitors in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Singapore and Hong Kong.

Dulux’s support will take this much-loved installation series to a new level. The Project installations at Melbourne Indesign 2014 will have a slew of new resources, as well as more publicity and exposure than ever before, dedicated ‘The Project’ street signage and even a small supply of creative materials.

Signature Floor Concepts + HBO+EMTB, 2012 

One of the most exciting developments is that for the first time ever, there will be live, mobile voting for the People’s Choice Award! The Project always shows what talented, ambitious creatives are able to achieve with a freewheeling brief, and at Melbourne Indesign 2014, visitors will be able to vote for their favourite installations on the day, as they go.

‘Inception’ is the unifying theme chosen by Dulux and Melbourne Indesign for The Project 2014:  “From false starts and crumpled paper to accolades and applause. Sometimes a day’s work is fruitless daydreams and, sometimes, it is the INCEPTION.”

Space + Hassell + Condensed, 2012

The Project theme has always inspired a very diverse set of interpretations and mediums – interactive, temporal, projections, special builds, visual illusions, utilising a certain product, dramatizing a space. This year, however, there will be a small visual cue uniting all the installations.

Dulux is providing sample pots of colour from a new paint palette they will launch at Melbourne Indesign, and the creatives will be able to incorporate these in any way they choose. We’re looking forward to seeing how this small visual link unites what is sure to be a wildly imaginative range of Inception-themed installations.

The Project is the result of collaborations between Indesign: The Event Exhibitors (high-end suppliers to the architecture and design industry) with artists, designers, architects, studios and other diverse creative teams.
