Thomas Llewellyn and Daniel To and Emma Aiston have been named joint winners of 2011’s Annual Manual: A Guide to Australian Design Now.

Their designs were picked from a pool of 120 nominated entries to receive a shared exhibition in the Project Space of Object Gallery in 2012, with Object also helping to finance new work from the artists for next year’s exhibition.

Melbourne-based RMIT graduate Llewellyn’s award-winning entry Drawing Board allows 2 people to sit and exchange ideas at a shared table through drawing. Drawing becomes a tool for design and social interaction through a process of collaboration.

 

“Thomas has created a conceptual piece that sends an idea out into the world,” said jury member Dan Honey, Co-founder of Office for Good Design and Creative Producer of the State of Design Festival.

To and Aiston – better known as Daniel Emma – won for D.E., a collection of 7 desk accessories well-regarded for their simplicity and purity of form.

Jury member Kate Rhodes, Curator of RMIT’s Design Hub, Creative Director of the State of Design Festival and Co-founder of the Office for Good Design described D.E. as “a collection of refined, quiet and inspiring pieces.”

 

Annual Manual: A Guide to Australian Design Now! is on display in Object’s Main Gallery until 19 June 2011. See images from the exhibition’s opening night here.
