Saturday in Design Sydney

Hot on the heels of the first Saturday in Design Singapore, the design bonanza travelled to Sydney last weekend.

Saturday in Design Sydney


25 August, 2011

Saturday in Design returned to home shores on 19 and 20 August with a bigger-than-ever event.




They say that the sun always shines on Saturday in Design – and although a rainy and windy +Friday didn’t bode well for the rest of the weekend, on Saturday the sun was shining and the atmosphere was electric.

7000+ people flocked to 36 locations across 7 precincts, soaking up the best of Australian and international design from 90 different exhibitors.



The keyword for The Project installations – collaborations between local designers and architects and exhibiting showrooms – was ELEMENT, and each group of creatives put its own imaginative twist on the theme.




New products from the likes of UK designer Benjamin Hubert, Danish designer Rolf Hay and Hong Kong-based Michael Young were a real drawcard.

Showrooms pulled out all the stops to make the day truly special, with live events and demonstrations, amazing food and drinks, competitions and prize draws.


Lingerie parades…


…Vintage Mad Men-inspired chic…


…and live manufacturing!

You can read a full review of the day, sorted by design precincts, on – it’s sure to get you excited for the next Saturday in Design Singapore!
