Designers and exhibitors are putting the finishing touches on their designs for The Project in the lead-up to Brisbane Indesign.
May 10th, 2012
After months of brainstorming, discussion, sketches and mock-ups, it’s almost time for the much-anticipated installations for The Project as part of Brisbane Indesign to be unveiled.
Our exhibitors and designers have been busy getting creative about the idea of Common Thread, what it means to them and how they can interpret it spatially and visually.
The Project is always a major drawcard at Saturday in Design events as designers let their imaginations run wild and exhibitors showcase their products in ways they’ve never been seen before.
This year at Brisbane Indesign looks set to be no different, with an impressive lineup of collaborations.
Argent + QUT 3rd Year Interior Design Students – interpreting luxury in an open bathroom design creating a relaxing, soothing environment in an unconventional manner.
Café Culture + QUT 3rd Year Interior Design Students – a concept based around nature as a powerful energy uniting design and manufacturing.
Chairbiz + Various Artists – 10 artists will interpret the Common Thread theme in a live painting session at the Chairbiz showroom.
Coco Republic + Smeg + HASSELL – The Gallery Project, exploring art in design with the Smeg and Oly San Francisco collections.
