We recently visited the Melbourne Now exhibition.
The exhibition is running concurrently at the Ian Potter Centre, NGV Australia and NGV International.
It’s a huge display that showcases the latest in art, architecture, design, culture and performance, across the creative landscape of Melbourne.
It’s so large that we spent 2 hours at the Ian Potter Centre and only managed to see two thirds of what they had on offer.
What both surprised and delighted me was the Design Wall that made up the Melbourne Design Now presentation of the exhibition.
There are nearly 700 items on display, by 21 Melbourne design studios, covering the disciplines of industrial, product, furniture and object design.
It’s great to see that we can still design and make products in Melbourne but sad to see that there were only 40 actual designs.
The 700 items were made up by duplicating the 40 designs.
