The history and practice of Industrial Design in Victoria Australia is my research interest and this blog include posts related to this interest as well as my practice as a designer and design educator.
I-CONIC celebrates award winning and innovative Australian industrial design. The exhibition features iconic designs from the 1880s to the present day. Over 50 products designed in Australia including the Wiltshire Staysharp knife, Décor BYO wine cooler, Eveready Dolphin torch, Rosebank Stack Hat, and the Britax baby capsule will be on display.
In Australia some innovations were the result of our unique climate and lifestyle, like the ‘Esky’, but others like the ‘Britax baby capsule’ and the ‘Kambrook powerboard’ celebrate the capacity of our industrial design profession to bring a world first innovation to a global market. The exhibition is supported by the Design Institute of Australia and features many DIA Hall of Fame designers. Curated by Monash University senior lecturer Ian Wong FDIA.
