The 2-month countdown is now underway to Saturday in Design, Melbourne, to be held on August 17 +18. Find out what it has in store for you this year!
28 June, 2012
Celebrating its 10th anniversary, Saturday in Design (SID) is set to go off this August, 17 + 18, in Melbourne. Now a 2-day event, SID comes off the back of a successful edition of Brisbane Indesign held in Queensland in May, and will be followed by Singapore in October where Singaporean SID-goers will be treated to a smorgasbord of local Asian and international design.
Alternating each year between Sydney and Melbourne, Saturday in Design enables the design community to gauge trends, connect with like-minded creatives, and get inspired by contemporary design – in all its forms – and creative prowess through The Project.
Melbourne design precincts will come to life on Friday 17 and Saturday 18 August, with showrooms opening their doors to present the best of local and international design.
In previous years Richmond, Flinders Lane, Fitzroy and South Melbourne have emerged as the go-to hubs for vital design action – and this year promises more of the same!
Marking its 10th anniversary, SID has grown to encompass both the Friday and Saturday, with showrooms opening their doors 12pm – 6pm on Friday 17, and 9am – 6pm, Saturday 18.
Previously a one-day event (with Friday devoted to special VIP meetings and events), the organisers of SID have decided to extend the event to 2 days, based on feedback from attendees and exhibitors. Now with 2 days to visit your top showrooms and brands, you will have the opportunity to see all the standout product launches, Project installations and special timed events. (Not to be forgotten are the intimate VIP events hosted on the Friday evening!)
