We’ve got the wrap of The Project 2009, from showrooms around Sydney.
August 12th, 2009
The Project 2009 surprised, delighted and stimulated visitors at Saturday in Design. Creative, colorful and quirky, The Project explored the keyword, ’Sense’, drew out themes, celebrated product and inspired event guests, with an array of installations all around town.
Alternative Surfaces/Mico/Stylecraft with Whitehouse Institute of Design
Mountains of binders covered in various finishes representing each of the three companies were displayed in and in between the showrooms. This installation was sustainable – re-using old materials – and also created movement through the spaces. (Photographer: Jason Lam)
Cafe Culture / Brintons Carpets with Luchetti Krelle
A welcome distraction from the somewhat frenetic pace of the event, this Project location beckoned to visitors’ dark sides. Burlesque music, scented candles, a provocative photo opportunity, decadent wine and cheese and a tarot reader all combined to create a truly sensual experience.

At Warehouse 625, visitors could enter the great outdoors up on the second level, where Classique showcased their leisure furniture, where people took the opportunity to indulge in a much-needed sit down during the day.

Kinnarps / CSM Storage and Filing Solutions with Andrew Aloisio
Visitors to the space were intrigued by the Progressive Organic’ installation that Aloisio worked on over a period of time, which combined elements of the organic and industrial.
Maxton Fox with Spparc Architecture
The showroom theme was based on a bowerbird, an Australian native that collects brightly coloured objects, which inspired various installations and a blue colour scheme.
