Who are the architects, designers and creatives that – for now more than ten years of Habitus – have caught our attention, and held it? That is a question that the latest issue of Habitus, the Trailblazers issue, aims to answer.
On Thursday 6 December we celebrated the release of issue #42 alongside Vitra Design Museum’s Miniatures Exhibition hosted by Living Edge.
For the first time on Australian shores the Miniatures Exhibition is comprised of 100, iconic Vitra chair designs released between 1850 and 1990. At a scale of 1:6 and made by the same Vitra craftsmen that make the life-size pieces, this exhibition has travelled the world igniting the hearts of die-hard design enthusiasts. It’s a testament to the legendary Swiss company’s ability to push the boundaries of creativity and design to reach new heights.
Which is exactly what we strived to achieve within the Trailblazers issue.
We looked to communicate projects and people that embodied a unique approach to architecture and design as well as honest and responsive qualities. It was no small feat to collate and consolidate the outstanding, thought-provoking, and innovative work coming out of the Indo Pacific.
Drinks were in order.
We’d like to thank everyone who contributed to this issue, which extends from the writers, photographers, designers and our new Associate Art Director, Betty Wong, to the architects and Design Hunters who feature within, to our clients and avid supporters.
We’d like to extend a special thanks to the team at Living Edge for hosting the launch party; for sharing with the Habitus entourage the Vitra Design Museum’s Miniatures Exhibition; and of course for their continued support over the years.
