It’s getting the late, the sun has dropped and the cool air is descending on Surry Hills but it hasn’t depleted the crowd. Living Edge Studio was packed probably because they were offering drinks from 4pm and noodle boxes.
It was a bit hard to see the items on display with so many people around but I was amazed at the intricacy of the champagne corks from Chandon. They were chairs! Each chair was made from the top of a champagne bottle – the cork, the foil, the wire that holds the cork in place and the metal tag on top of the cork. They were unique. I have no idea who did them or why but I loved them. The following night we were at friends’ place celebrating his recent promotion and I couldn’t help trying to replicate one of the chairs with the paraphernalia that came from the top of our champagne bottle. Hours of entertainment!
Well that wraps up my Saturday in Design. It was such a great day as always. Next year the event will be in Melbourne. I love Melbourne but sometimes these things are more enjoyable in your home town. To go or not to go, that is the question.
