In the middle of Melbourne’s winter, Saturday Indesign got designers and enthusiasts alike out in droves to see the latest releases from the best suppliers. One showroom partnership, in particular, had something special up for grabs – and now a winner has been chosen…
September 13th, 2019
Saturday Indesign returned to Melbourne after a two-year hiatus in June. Drawing out crowds of people who flocked to the various showrooms, Saturday Indesign satiated many people’s appetite for design.
This was certainly true for Cosentino and Gaggenau – who welcomed guests all day to the intimate and elegant Gaggenau showroom in South Melbourne. With a full-day of festivities planned out, including a fine selection of food and drinks for guests to take comfort in, the South Melbourne space was a hub for visitors. Not only was a completely immersive experience created within the ambient and welcoming showroom, but the designer behind the recently opened project – Dan Cox from Carr – presented a special behind-the-scenes rundown to the guests. Dan explained the design thinking and materiality that went into designing the new Gaggenau showroom and how it all came together to create such a sumptuous, and award-winning home for a historic brand.
With creativity a core element in the designer’s toolkit, Cosentino and Gaggenau ensured everybody had a platform for expression throughout the day. And there was an incredible prize on the cards for one lucky winner – a trip to Salone del Mobile, Milan in 2020!
The competition asked guests during Saturday Indesign to design a new Dekton by Cosentino surface. Decked out with iPads and a glass of bubbles or wine, over a hundred entries were submitted on the day. But, as they say, there can be only one winner.
Cosentino and Gaggenau are excited to announce that the winner of the Saturday Indesign Milan trip in 2020 has been awarded to Beth Xotta-Dickson!

While good design should last a lifetime, Cult Design’s sustainability initiative offers preloved authentic design pieces a chance for a whole new existence. We sit down with Richard Munao to talk about how Cultivated came to be, what we can learn from the Danish – and why buying once but buying well is one of the best strategies for sustainable living.
