Workshopped Opening Night – August 2017
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!
