The Australian Timber Design Awards are in its 11th year, and the entrants this year do not disappoint. Designers from around the nation have submitted a wide range of outstanding timber creations for judging by a panel of experts. You have a chance to vote for your favourite creation too in the Peoples Choice Awards.
SRD Change is a unique exhibition of graduate sustainable design that often directly challenges conventional expectations. Exhibits are selected from a diverse range of design areas from all of Sydney’s top Universities. They feature innovative visual and 3D works, multimedia and even high fashion garments.
June 1, 2010 to June 30, 2010
Throughout the month of June, Gazebo Wine Garden will be showcasing a unique exhibition, with all proceeds going straight to the Ted Noffs Foundation. This is an exhibition with a difference, as what’s being shown is chairs! Seven of Sydney’s creative people have been asked to customise an Eames chair however they see fit. Contributors include Sibella Court, Mary Shackman, Daimon Downey, Arnie Arnold, Ben Frost, Brett Chan, and Sarrita King.
The chairs will be auctioned off at the end of June, but up until then will be available for viewing at Gazebo.
July 15, 2010 to July 18, 2010
This year’s competition will showcase a diverse range of eco-friendly pieces, with up-cycling – emerging as a strong trend. 15 pieces made entirely from recycled materials will be included in the exhibition, including a lounge made from a 44 gallon drum, an Ottoman made from cricket ball off-cuts and a coffee table made from magazines.
Whether you’re a graphic designer, filmmaker, street artist, musician, fashion designer, illustrator – you can apply to RYD2010 for the chance to head overseas and work with some of the UK’s finest.
