How do you encapsulate the pinnacle projects and products of design from the Asia Pacific region? It’s design squared.
22 June, 2018
Design is one of those things that gets under your skin. And once it’s there it takes over your life, permeating many parts – in a good way of course. Suddenly the curves and textures of everything from a mug to a façade are writ large with meaning. An appreciation is developed for spaces and objects, which reaches into all facets of life.
So as a lover and creator of design, what would one expect when receiving a prestigious design award? A trophy that is a beautiful object in and of itself, naturally.
Founded by Stephan Ormandy and Louise Olsen over 30 years ago, Dinosaur Designs has continually created desirable design objects for a hungry Australian market. The pair brings organic and adventurous artefacts of design to life. An approach that has been translated into the 2018 INDE.Award trophy.
More than a glorified statue, the INDE.Award trophy features Dinosaur Designs’ signature resin and is formed into a beautiful, and subtly multi-purpose object. This is one piece of authentic design that will sit proudly in the ‘pool room’.
Those lucky enough to take one home receive an artefact of Australian design along with the recognition of having created a piece of stand-out design from the Asia Pacific. It really is a design object for designers. Design squared.
