Designers and exhibitors are putting the finishing touches on their designs for The Project in the lead-up to Brisbane Indesign.
May 10th, 2012
Our exhibitors and designers have been busy getting creative about the idea of Common Thread, what it means to them and how they can interpret it spatially and visually.
The Project is always a major drawcard at Saturday in Design events as designers let their imaginations run wild and exhibitors showcase their products in ways they’ve never been seen before.
This year at Brisbane Indesign looks set to be no different, with an impressive lineup of collaborations.
Café Culture + QUT 3rd Year Interior Design Students – a concept based around nature as a powerful energy uniting design and manufacturing.
Chairbiz + Various Artists – 10 artists will interpret the Common Thread theme in a live painting session at the Chairbiz showroom.
Cosh Living + Bosanquet Foley Architects + QUT 3rd Year Interior Design Projects – (see image at top) transforming paper into three different resolutions, using traditional craft forms to reflect hero pieces of furniture throughout the showroom.
Indesign Group + Fireworks Gallery + PDT + QUT 3rd Year Interior Design Students – finding a Common Thread of inspiration between magazines and the output of design professionals; blurring the boundaries between the two.
Inspiration Office + Woodhead + QUT 3rd Year Interior Design Students – exploring the notion of an interconnected and interdependent Brisbane design community, supported by Quadric. The elements of Fortitude Valley will be represented in a unique structure that will appear to grow throughout the day.
Living Edge + Bolon for TAG + Woods Bagot + QUT 3rd Year Interior Design Students – creating a ’choose your own adventure’-style journey through the showroom, encouraging interactivity and literally bringing the theme to life.
Mafi + HASSELL + QUT Students – an ever-evolving installation that combines repetition, balance and harmony for a unique visual experience.
Zenith + Various Designers – a large scale concept puzzle called SPWY will challenge teams to see how quickly teams of 3 can assemble the SPWY into a star-shape.
