Kjell Grant - Melbourne Movement

RMIT University Professor Kjell Grant founded Melbourne Movement in 1999 and his enthusiasm in 2012 is just as great.

The interest from students has also been as strong with invitations to join Melbourne Movement for Milan drawing to a conclusion.

Today Kjell discussed with a great deal of satisfaction and pride the careers of the many members who have benefited from the start that Melbourne Movement has provided. It is obvious that Kjell is enormously proud of his role in mentoring and encouraging design talent in Melbourne.

Designers like Jim Hannon Tan who was featured in DQ magazine Issue 41 recently have benefited directly from the experience Kjell brings to the table on every trip to Milan. Kjell recalls the contacts and opportunities he was able to establish for members like Jim and others with international manufactures like Alessi.
