2019 MELBOURNE DESIGN WEEK – MARCH 14 - APRIL 4

THEME – DESIGN EXPERIMENTS: HOW CAN DESIGN SHAPE THE FUTURE?

In this age of digital hyper-connectivity and increasing social isolation, instead of looking toward future design and technology, our focus is the historic importance of feasting and communal eating for social connectivity.

Referencing the long, intimate history between ceramic design and food; staged ceremonial dinners of locally sourced produce will showcase the ancient technique of baking food encased in clay alongside the contemporary work of six local ceramic designers and one furniture maker.
