Dorte recently attended the VIP Opening Night of Workshopped 17 at the Supa Centa Moore Park Sydney. Now in its 17th year, Workshopped provides local designers with a platform to present their designs to both local and international markets.
This year there were 55 designs including furniture, lighting and homeware designs. The theme for this year’s exhibition was "Does your design demand attention and is fit for purpose?" One entry that stood out was the AM24 chair designed by Robin Keussen. This dining style chair marries the warmth of felted textile upholstery with the strength of Tasmanian Oak legs. The joinery details are well considered and the brass spacers add a touch of elegance. A unique internal frame and webbing structure means that there is no upper backrest edge making the chair really comfortable to sit in. This is one chair that we hope makes it from prototype to production and into the market place!
The Workshopped exhibition is on until 27th August so be sure to check it out!
Scintilla in Workshopped 2015 Exhibition August 2015 – Scintilla was very excited to be a finalist in this year's Workshopped Design competition with our entry "Orbit". The Orbit wall clock is a commentary on our obsession with time. It aims to put the passage of time back into perspective by alluding to the enormity of time on geological timescales – moons orbiting a planet, planets orbiting a sun. The front face of the clock forms the minute hand and the passing hours are marked by a chrome sphere orbiting the face. Opening night of the exhibition was Wednesday 5th August at Moore Park Supa Centa, Sydney. The evening was buzzing with excitement as all the finalist entries were revealed to the public. The exhibition runs until August 23rd as part of the Sydney Design festival so be sure to go and have a look.
