DESIGN Canberra celebrated the launch of the HOME:MADE 19 exhibition this week with DESIGN Canberra special edition champagne from Lake George Winery and sweet treats at the Canberra Centre DESIGN Bar. HOME:MADE 19 presents new furniture and homewares created by some of Australia’s most exciting designers and makers. Against the backdrop of the iconic Monaro Mall, HOME:MADE 19 provides a unique opportunity to source one-off pieces for your home.
Attendees to the launch were able to enjoy a glass of champagne while looking at the impressive works on display, including the work by Canberra-based surface designer and screen printer Estelle Briedis who attended the event. Estelle’s piece included in the exhibition was her Mesa Panel screen/room divider. This screen divides space using its height and foldable elements to create a personalised user experience, forming both an aesthetic and functional purpose. This piece aims to provide practicality and usefulness while being an attractive statement piece within an interior environment. Each screen panel uses a gravity hook system, meaning each element can be taken apart individually and reassembled or have panels added- custom to the space.
Other works on display include; the Arc Wardrobe by Adelaide-based furniture designer and maker Stephen Roy – a minimalist response to the growing trend in semi-permanent living, a selection of contemporary jewellery by Noosa Hinterland-based silversmith/jeweller Misa Gelin, a range of elegant pendant lights by Tasmanian-based designer/maker Duncan Meerding, and many more beautifully designed and crafted pieces. This impressive exhibition continues till Sunday 24 November. DESIGN Canberra would like to thank everyone who attended the event.
