Bruce Hall - A.G.Healing
RMIT Alumnus industrial designer Bruce Hall designed radios and televisions for A.G.Healing in the 1960's. I first met Bruce when he was my examiner at RMIT with Greame Reade or Elivio Bonollo for second year external projects. Recently Bruce shared with students some of his recollections of his time at Healing. Awarded a Good Design Label for his record player model 201G 'Hit parader"which was also selected by Robin Boyd to represent Australia at the Montreal Expo 67. The injection moulded case for the 'Hit parader" was one of the first uses of ABS plastic in Melbourne.
