'a design life' 17-71 Exhibition - Opening

Design Institute of Australia members, friends and family attended the opening tonight of 'a design life' 17-71 an exhibition of the career of DIA industrial design Fellow, Robert Ian Edgar. DIA Hall of Fame automotive designer Phillip Zmood opened the exhibition and shared his reflection on industrial design practice in Victoria and in particular the critical responsibility, both he and Ian shared as design managers, to develop and foster talent in the industry locally. Philips and GMH were critical industrial design studios in Victoria that provided graduates with a career opportunity and Ian and Phillip often shared experiences of design practice and design management.
