Celebrating Melbourne’s extraordinary independent and emerging designers as well as the ground-breaking, bizarre and propositional works they produce, Design Fringe: Designers on Our Doorstep will showcase a wide range of local designers and their works. Accessible online as well as on posters across the City of Port Phillip, and supported by its new home at Linden New Art, you will gain access to the homes and working methods of the designers featured in this year's Design Fringe program.
Encompassing all types of object design including furniture, fashion and sculpture, Design Fringe expands on Fringe Furniture’s legacy, ensuring that open access design opportunities are embedded in the contemporary design industry into the future.
This year’s event has the theme of “home”, acknowledging that our own dwellings often provide the inspiration for exceptional design.
Designers on Your Doorstep presents an intimate portrait of the designers, their inspirations and their bold new works. Enjoy interviews with the designers, explore the designers’ homes and studios through beautiful photographs and online profiles. This online content is accompanied by an outdoor public art project showcasing a selection of the diverse and thought-provoking work on posters in the streets.
