Available now for online readers, the 82nd issue of Indesign largely focuses on hospitable design, it’s trends and it’s importance.
October 14th, 2020
Hospitality is very much entrenched within our daily lives. The cafe, restaurant and bar are not just places to satisfy cravings, but to have social gatherings, to enlighten oneself and to dabble in the delights provided by a particular venue. Written and published within the COVID-19 pandemic, Indesign 82 focuses on these places of meeting and human interaction that was so sorely missed throughout the lockdown period.
In this issue we examine what hospitable design means and how it has become a part of all that we do. The 2020 INDE.Awards winners are put on show within the early pages, deservedly showcased for their efforts as the most talented and creative Asia-Pacific designers of the past 12 months. We also talk with Design Luminary Penelope Forlano, profile Ross Didier and present reviews from Bates Smart, ClarkeHopkinsClarke and Woods Bagot.
The Ocean Grove Surf Life Saving Club, restored by Wood Marsh, is living proof of community pride manufactured into a low budget, high quality project. We explore the design, its materials, and its standing in the community. University of New South Wales’ The Lounge, a space specifically for the university’s staff, is a high end hospitality establishment that also doubles as a place for staff members to unwind.
With the acquired understanding that clients and customers must feel at home in order to be smitten with an appliance, Winning Appliances’ Richmond Showroom – designed by Cera Stribley – incorporates the best in commercial and residential design to produce a room that adequately depicts the appliances in their natural habitat, with the backdrop of a kitchen and a warm atmosphere ensuring for a showroom that’s more of a room than for show.
All these stories, profiles, projects and reviews are fully fledged inside Indesign issue 82, the hospitable design edition. Sit yourself on a chair at home, a cafe or any other hospitality venue, and it fits just about anywhere.
