I’m part of an exhibition organised by Desktop magazine and The Design Kids opening at No Vacancy this Thursday.
The premise: Twenty young designers are paired up with twenty Melbourne design studios. Each pair is given an A1-sized piece of wood, cut in half diagonally. The studios chose a compound word and the designer and studio respond to their part of the word on their half of the wood. The pieces are then joined together, exhibited, and put up for silent auction, with the proceeds going to a charity the studios nominate.
I was paired with Studio Round and the word we chose was “peacemaker”, with the proceeds going to AIME. The auction goes online this weekend and continues for five days. Photos and links to our piece will follow then!
