Shifting the showroom experience through collaboration

Collaborations are exciting and inspiring. Seeing two (or more) minds band together to create something new and unexpected makes us look on in awe, sparking the creative parts in all of us. This year, at Melbourne Indesign The Project was embraced with wholehearted enthusiasm. Entering a showroom meant being overwhelmed with surprise, excitement, joy and the urge to Instagram – right away! And the common element among all involved was collaborative engagement.

7 favourite pieces from Melbourne Indesign

Melbourne Indesign was not only for professional designers, but for those of us who simply have a passion for design. With dozens of residential brands exhibiting and launching new product there was much to lust over.

LiveLife talk at Melbourne Indesign

Along with our talented panellists – Quino Holland (Fieldwork), Jeremy McLeod (Breathe) and Prani Hodges (Six Degrees), we discussed the good, the bad and the beautiful when it comes to multi-residential housing. It was great to hear the respect shared among the practices and the fact that their projects are together driving a move towards a better kind of communal living.

A warm thank you again to our panellists, John Wardle Architects for hosting us, and everyone who came along. Hope you enjoyed it.
