Only one more sleep.
It’s been two years since we’ve had a Saturday In Design here in Sydney and I must say, I’m quite excited. It’s a day (or this year, two) where a number furniture, fabric and design studios open their doors to the design community. Little shuttle buses ferry participants from one location to another, showrooms are buzzing with people and releasing new products and many of them have entertainment. It is such a fun day and so much to see and do.
Then I’m hoping to catch a SAAB Limo out to Electrolux to hear Alex Perry discuss the latest colour trends and concepts that translate from the runway to interior design. Tetsuya is holding cooking demonstrations on the Electrolux induction cooktops too so maybe a bite of lunch there or will I trek across town to Mico Design where masterchefs from Bills are dishing up an all day breakfast? The new Kohler bathroom range will be on display there.
Then where? Maybe the temporary Warehouse 625 which will be housing Bathe, Ilve, Interstudio, Porters Paints and Warwick Fabrics to name a few. Then I think it will be time for a rest. The Habitus Lounge in the Gelosa showroom looks just the place.
But there’s still so much more to see, I hope I fit it all in. I must get to bed early. I want to be ready for a full day of design and food and laughter. Check back next week to see what I accomplished.
