After missing out on last years Sydney Indesign event due to a busy work schedule, the team was eager to ensure they did not miss out on what 2014 had to offer. With the Melbourne leg set to be held from the 22nd – 23rd of August, the UNO team decided to set out Friday afternoon to soak up the sun and see what the Melbourne design landscape had to offer.
A little about Melbourne Indesign:
Melbourne Indesign is an annual event which has been centered across the Asia Pacific for over a decade. In every city (Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Singapore and Hong Kong), Indesign is distinguished by a coming together of boutique commercial design houses, international and regional, and leading creative figures from the architecture and design industry.
It was inspired by the idea that a design event should itself be highly designed – immersive, curated and experiential. This led to Indesign’s unique non-traditional format, eschewing the regimented tradeshow hall to unite multiple locations across the design precincts of a city.
Showrooms and pop-up spaces are able to entertain people in the full spotlight of their own space, which is transformed for the event by conceptual installations, as well as hosting topical industry seminars, international guests, workshops, demonstrations and entertainment.
Here’s but a snap shot of our experience from the days events…
It started with lunch…
And a few beers…
We checked out some of the displays.
And had some fun, trying our hand at winning a bottle of champaign.
No champaign but the runner up prize of candy was a good alternative.
Checking out the Reece display designed by our Space team.
Industrial guys putting their skills to work…
Some more awesome displays.
Well done Melbourne. Looking forward to next year.
