Milton Glaser claimed that there are three responses to a piece of design – yes, no and WOW!
Design-Made. definitely aims for the latter as.
Founded by Kobe Johns of FACTORY DESIGN DISTRICT and JP Finsbury Bespoke Joiners (left) and AUTHENTIC DESIGN ALLIANCE director Anne-Maree Sargeant, Design-Made. is a three-day celebration of design for Australia and proved that design is not meant to be something just for an alcove for the well-heeled and blessed, but makes it accessible for everyone:
Independent in nature, produced independently and informed by a careful curation, it expands on the solid foundation built by the Australia Design Australia and Factory Design District to educate the broader Australian community about the importance of supporting original design.
The event aims to stimulate “design thinking by unmasking and demystifying the design process.”
Showcasing a wide spectrum of contemporary design it promotes and builds a better understanding about the nature of of design in Australia, a desired side effect of which is to move consumers to look into the process and buy locally and sustainably.
Held over two locations in Alexandria, visitors to Design-Made. have the opportunity to directly engage and connect – be it with the emissions of exhibitors, participate in Q & A sessions, floor talks, meet main protagonists and learn from them in workshops or have their books signed.
Opportunities to indulge were plentiful, specifically the well-curated dining experiences are worth a mention and the food trucks that proffered local craft beer and organic food.
