Sydney Inspiration and DesignEX Melbourne 2013

Home > Design Inspiration

Last week was particularly busy working in Sydney and then heading to Melbourne. The Sydney component involved meetings with clients and research for an exciting new venture that is in the pipeline. A great advantage of doing retail design works is that we “HAVE” to check out the latest trends in metropolitan areas. We went to The Grounds in Alexandria, Westfield City and Bondi Junction. Then we HAD to check out the latest eateries in Bondi. All in a day’s work! Then it was off to DesignEX which was held in Melbourne this year. Whilst a little smaller than usual this year, the event was inspirational, and a great launching pad for new and innovative products. Gorgeous new metallic beaded lights (they had a 1920’s/Gatsby style), beautiful new ranges from one of our favourite Australian fabric designers, Cloth and lots of recycled or organic inspired product were on show.

Recycled or glazed brick, polished concrete, plywood, macramé, terracotta and metallic elements remain very strong trends.

Side excursions to the Monet exhibition and the Melbourne international Jazz Festival required energy injections so we enjoyed checking the fit outs at Pei Modern, Lupino & George Colombaris’ new restaurant “Gazi”. Then it was back to a very cold windy Coffs to complete some deadlines before the next big adventure…
