One week on from Saturday in Design 2011, the buzz of the event has only just settled. A large cohort of Adelaidian's made their way to Sydney, thanks to the generosity of Interface Flor. From dawn till dusk, designers could be spotted a mile away sporting bright coral lanyards. Filling the streets of Darlinghurst, Surry Hills, Alexandria, Redfern and Chippendale, showrooms burst open with an array of products and installations. Food was constantly on rotation and the drinks continued to flow as designers explored themed realms of furniture, sitting amoungst pop colours and new textures. Highlights included Jardan, Stylecraft (and the Stylecraft afterparty), Zenith, Artisan Workshop, Interface Flor, Corporate Culture, Hub Furniture, Schiavello and Spence + Lyda. Oh and who could forget the bags from Tongue + Groove!
See you next year in Melbourne!
The refurbishment of the Mansfield Park Hotel, was recently featured in the June/July 2011 issue of 'Hotel SA' magazine. Enoki worked in collaboration with Samantha Agostino on the planning for the extension, resulting in a complete facelift to the existing building. Credit is due to the entire team; in particular the Matthews Group and HT Constructions. The interior features original pieces by Agostino + Brown; check out their website for the entire hand crafted range.
On the night of Sunday 24th July, a Lollipop, Dog, Fire and Drum Kit were rolled away; Cumulus' floated back into boxes; and a couple of Zig Zags made their way back into containers. Design:Made:Trade was at an end for another year, leaving behind a legacy of creative new products, unleashed upon designers, architects, artists and design lovers alike. New friendships were formed with Design by Them, Xavier + Me, Write to Me Stationary, Designed in Brunswick, The Mod Collective, Under There and Jo Melrose Design. Fellow South Australian's Daniel + Emma provided a spot for a browse and read, whilst the Jam Factory proved yet again what talent they cultivate. All in all it was a highly successful weekend, from which positive responses and compliments left Cumulus' beaming.
