Things We Love: Object Future Iii Exhibition

  • November 29th, 2015

The design process is often overlooked when you are experiencing and admiring a final product. Yet, as we are well aware here at Modscape, it is the time and effort that goes into the design process that is responsible for creating the end masterpiece.

Object Future III is a new exhibition set to open in December at St Kilda’s Linden New Art Gallery. Focusing on the design process, the exhibition looks at how ideas shape the things that are designed for everyday consumption and asserts the objects in a context for aesthetic and intellectual consumption.

Six design studios have been commissioned to produce an object specifically for the exhibition and in doing so share an intimate glimpse into their design process through the development of initial ideas, prototypes and the subsequent object.

Curated by Suzannah Henty and Dale Hardiman, the exhibition traverses industrial, product, furniture, object design, sculpture and contemporary art and intends to illuminate the contemporary Australian practice.

One of our favourite’s collections on display is the work by designer Amos Enders-Moje and his Melbourne based design company Mo-en. Using recycled glass from the likes of the hospitality industry, general waste and commercial waste, Mo-en transforms discarded items into distinctive lighting and glass objects of usability, beauty, structural integrity and sustainability.

The exhibition runs from 3 December 2015 – 28 February 2016, and more information on exhibiting designers and opening hours can be found on their website.
