Tomorrow’s talent power onto Sydney’s design scene.
January 6th, 2010
The best student work of the 2009 Higher School Certificate in Design and Technology as selected by the Powerhouse museum, are currently on show at the Sydney space.
The exhibition of works of these young budding talents showcase a diverse range of inspirations, from fashion and furniture to recreational, musical and safety equipment.
“This year’s exhibition showcases a diverse range of innovative and exciting projects. The high level of talent from young design students in New South Wales is remarkable” said Erika Dicker, Curator of Product Design at the Powerhouse Museum.
Creative but functional designs were favoured by the students, who came up with a folding kayak which converts to a shelter, a floating feeder for orphaned whale calves and an already award-winning electronic signalling system for motor bike riders. ’¨’¨
Other highlights of this year’s exhibition were puzzles designed especially for children with cerebral palsy, a set of flat-pack decorative lamps, and also a gown inspired by the Snowy Mountains made from recycled materials.
DesignTECH is showing at the Powerhouse Museum until 18 April 2010. ’¨
