Welcome to the second issue of inside for 2019. It’s been a fast and furious race to the middle of the year with a plethora of events and exhibitions both here at home and overseas and, with half the year already over, there has hardly been time to breathe. Within inside 106 we present a variety of reviews, profiles and projects, and touch down in most of our Australian cities through our projects. To start the ball rolling there is a review of Melbourne Design Week (p18), which was again a huge success.

melbourne design week

Now in its third iteration, Melbourne Design Week (MDW) again took centre stage in the Victorian capital with a plethora of events throughout the city, as well as the regional hub of Geelong. This year the offering of more than 200 talks, workshops, tours, exhibitions, installations and other happenings was a cornucopia of delight to appeal to every design palette. With the theme of ‘Design Experiments’, the overarching idea was about dissecting the way in which we live with particular focus on sustainability, reuse of resources, connectivity with our land and fostering better design for the future. It was a big idea that was explored with vigour over the 11 days that is MDW. Not merely content to present design as the latest chair or table (although there were some…

home sweet home

Of all the events presented in Milan during Salone del Mobile week this year the most colourful and quirky was Missoni’s Home Sweet Home by artist Alessandra Roveda. The event was situated on via Solferino in the Brera district and the covered walkway that led through to the entrance did little to prepare the visitor for the extraordinary installation that was inside.

Only the walls and floors escaped the woolly treatment and the end result was…

1- Femmage Art Gallery of South Australia, SA 25 April – 1 September Referencing the Sally Smart artwork, which in turn references an earlier generation of feminist artists, the word ‘Femmage’ was coined by Miriam Schapiro to describe the use of traditional women’s techniques in contemporary art making. The exhibition, drawn from the SA collection includes works using combined or collaged materials, including paint, fabric, photography and found objects, with each work making reference to women and identity. There is a keen sense of social, political and personal enquiry in each of the works with exceptional pieces from Sarah Contos, Julie Fragar, Jacqui Stockdale, Caroline Rothwell, Annabelle Collett, Ali Gumillya Baker and many more. Ali Gumillya Baker, whose work is shown, was born in 1975 and is of the Mirning people, Nullarbor…

Mariana Hardwick, South Melbourne boutique Adam Kane Architects Set with the task of redefining bridal retail, Adam Kane Architects has created a new, contemporary boutique for Mariana Hardwick in South Melbourne, Victoria.

The design utilises a simple yet refined palette complemented with a fresh take on the typical bridal store layout. The design…
