Crowds of people could be seen wandering the residential backstreets of Chippendale, bee-lining their way to the precinct’s six showrooms.
August 4th, 2009
Nestled in Levey Street was Corporate Culture in collaboration with Klang Audiovisual and Haron Robson. The three fused their passion for furniture, lighting and sound to create a design wonderland. Visitors were transported into another realm as they walked through blacked-out doors and an invisible wall of subtle sound-effects.
Inside were installations featuring Corporate Culture’s newest products by designers such as Cecilie Manz, Ross Didier and more. Guests climbed a staircase of plinths, winding their way up to the RIN Café which, as its name suggested, was equipped with ‘Rin’ chairs. The chair’s designer Hiromichi Konno was on hand to discuss the design, created for Fritz Hansen and Frederick Moller.
A quick walk around the corner found you at Insitu and Planex who infused their spaces with lots of colour, cool music and fresh furniture. Meanwhile K+N City Office catered for its clients and guests with a temporary bar space and lots of desk space for relaxing, socialising and kitting out work environments.
Set on Abercrombie Street, Argent’s showroom was a vision of gleaming bathroom-ware! Most interesting was their tapware selection, arranged in a long line-up where visitors could test them out first-hand.
Last, but definitely not least!, was Maxton Fox whose showroom was an immaculate display of interior designed furniture settings, created in collaboration with Spparc Architecture. Spending the weekend in blue, the team at Maxton Fox poured ocean-blue cocktails at their cocktail event on Friday evening, while serving cupcakes, elegantly decorated in electric blue with silver baubles, on Saturday.
Definitely worth the wander downhill from Surry Hills, Chippendale and Glebe offered guests a wealth of inspiration and fresh ideas of living.
