Launch Of Inaugural Melbourne Design Fair

25.02.22

The National Gallery of Victoria, in partnership with Melbourne Art Foundation will launch the inaugural Melbourne Design Fair, which will be a key event of the 2022 Melbourne Design Week program this March, reports Abode2 luxury property magazine.

Melbourne Design Fair will be the first of its kind to bring together designers, design organizations, studios, galleries and collectors together in a commercial showcase of limited edition, rare, one-of-a-kind collectable pieces by Australia’s leading designer-makers.

The fair will be exhibited across two platforms: “Present” will feature galleries, design organizations, agencies, studios - dedicated displays by design creative they represent. Participating organizations, curated by NGV, include Gallery Sally Dan-Cuthbert, Sophie Gannon Gallery, Studio Roland Snooks, Sullivan and Strumpf, Broached Commissions, Agency Projects, Christopher Boots, C. Gallery, Craft Victoria, Jam Factory, Local Design, Modern Times and Design Tasmania.

“Select” will be curated exhibition featuring works from 35 designers across Australia, hand-picked by NGV curator of contemporary design and architecture Simone LeAmon. They include Dale Hardiman, Elliot Bastianon, Jordan Fleming, Adam Goodrum, Brodie Neill, Susan Cohn, Helen Kontouris, Jon Goulder, Damien Wright and many more.

“Collectible contemporary design is cultural production reflecting our time, offering alternative points of view, commentary or insights into the design, and making of objects anchored to function and the rituals of everyday life,” LeAmon said. “Audiences will find prototypes, limited edition, limited serial production and one-of-a-kind, works on offer. Collectible design invites us to explore and contemplate Australian material culture through the convergence of ideas, materials and making, which is what makes the Melbourne Design Fair an event not to be missed.”

All works exhibited will be available for purchase. Melbourne Design Fair will also include a series of talks and conversations with the designers, as well as a film series. For more information about Melbourne Design Week, click here.
