Wishing all Design daily subscribers and casual readers of the blog a wonderful New Year.
The image shown below is an appropriately glamorous and colourful image to bring in the New Year.
Danielle Brustman was one of ten interior designers chosen as finalists in the Rigg Design Prize 2018. Brustman’s installation was created in collaboration with Melbourne based lighting designers Volker Haug Studio with building and joinery by Matt Staples.
The intention behind Brustman’s installation is to leave space for an occupant’s dreaming and imagination. This rich spatial framework facilitates inspiration where a “world within a world” can emerge allowing for the “Inner-Terior” of its occupants to be on display as only when one feels safe and secure can abstract thought and dreaming occur. Part conversation pit, part stage, this curvilinear structure takes its cues from art deco bandshells (arched performance stages that reflect sound into the audience) where rooms become sets and people become performers in their own lives.
The exhibition at the NGV’s Ian Potter Centre continues until February 24, 2019 and includes the work of Amber Road, Arent & Pyke, Danielle Brustman, Flack Studio, David Hicks, Hecker Guthrie, Martyn Thompson Studio, Richards Stanisich, Scott Weston Architecture Designand The Society Inc by Sibella Court.
