State of Design 2009

In a fair and just world we would be heading off to Australia in a couple of weeks for State of Design in Melbourne, “Victoria’s Design Festival”

But it’s not a fair and just world and so were not.

And so the launch of the official programme today hit us especially hard.

In addition to an interesting looking official trade fair Furnitex and a sort of “speed dating” show for youngsters Design:Made:Trade with some very good designers, the fringe programme is larger, wider and a lot more interesting than much of that on offer in the northern hemisphere.

In addition to a wonderful selection of shows and discussions there is a very interesting sounding graffiti season from the Australian Centre for the Moving Image. And a Paper Plane Academy. Lovely

We will do our best to provide some sort of coverage from State of Design 2009.
And in 2010 we will be there.
