Object welcomes 5 NSW ’thought leaders’ in their latest exhibition.
January 27th, 2010
Sydney’s Object Gallery will be transformed “into a laboratory of ideas” with their latest exhibition STATE. RESPOND. Exploring sustainable design.
The exhibition will see 5 New South Wales design studios respond in innovative ways to the issue of sustainability in contemporary design practice – from the role design now plays in creating change as well as looking retrospectively at how design has impacted the issues we face today.
The exhibition will bring together furniture design studio Schamburg+Alvisse (Indesign Luminaries in 2009); strategic design agency Digital Eskimo; graphic design agency one8one7 (award-winning designers of the new Indesign Magazine); textile design business Bird Textile; and sustainably-focused architecture firm Laboratory for Visionary Architecture (LAVA).
All the designers involved are known for their progressive views on the environment and progressive practices – as Marc Schamburg puts it: “Design can transform objects of matter into objects that matter.”’¨’¨
“At a time when designers are beginning to be recognised as change-makers not stuff-creators, STATE. RESPOND. is a poignant exhibition that will transform Object Gallery into a laboratory of ideas,” say the organisers.
You can visit STATE. RESPOND. Exploring sustainable design 6 February – 28 March at the Object Gallery – 417 Bourke St, Surry Hills – or you can engage online with an interactive microsite for the exhibition, coming soon on the Object website.
