‘Availability’ focuses on adaptation and efficiencies within fabrication techniques. Radical reinvention through assembly and process, minimising waste and energy consumption. Each of the chairs will be exhibited within a physical installation occupying the 28 Johnston Street gallery space in Fitzroy. Offering a physical representation of new materialities, techniques and manufacturing technologies. A series of inclusive workshop presentations will offer an insight into the designers’ pieces and how they made them.
In addition to some of Australia’s leading and emerging design practitioners ‘Availability’ is collaborating with a diverse range of stakeholders — including Australian industries that produce and develop products capable of reuse and reinvention. From Bunnings to Myco a bio-grown leather plant in Footscray.
Exhibition runs from December 1 – 8, 2022 and is located at 28 Johnston St, Fitzroy VIC 3065.
