This December, Linden New Art presents Object Future III, showcasing some of Melbourne’s upcoming and celebrated designers.
November 17th, 2015
Opening December 3, the exhibition is centered on process, an aspect of design that is often over-looked. Through tracing each designer’s process over 2015 until their piece is ready to be exhibited, Object Future III illustrates the developments of initial ideas, prototypes as well as the subsequent finished product.
Designers exhibiting in Object Future III include Hugh Altschwager, Amos Enders-Moje of Mo-En Design, Kate Stokes and Haslett Grounds of Coco Flip, Hamish Munro, Rosanna Ceravolo and Anna Varendorff.
Hugh Altschwager takes inspiration from his Australian environment and Nordic heritage to design long lasting products using natural, unprocessed materials with a Northern European design aesthetic.
Designer Amos Enders-Moje, founder of Mo-En design, uses recycled glass from the hospitality industry, general and commercial waste and other sources of unwanted scrap glass to create lighting, jewellery and domestic objects that embody usability, beauty and sustainability.
Kate Stokes and Haslett Grounds, of Coco Flip, endeavour to create products and experiences that provoke thought and conversation, encouraging an escape from the everyday.
Curated by Suzannah Henty and Dale Hardiman, Object Future III is the third exhibition over three years, originally initiated in response to a lack of inclusive design exhibitions in Australia. According to Suzannah, “The heart of the project is to support designed outcomes with intellectual foundations, and to launch a platform for emerging and establishing designers, designer makers and artists to create unique work for the exhibition”.
