Living Edge Presents Two Engaging Events for Design Enthusiasts at Melbourne Design Week

Living Edge are proud to present two engaging events for designers and design enthusiasts, as part of Melbourne Design Week.

Melbourne Design Week celebrates design in an annual 11-day program of talks, tours, exhibitions, launches, installations and workshops across Australia’s design capital. The program is a platform for designers, educators, enthusiasts, thinkers and businesses to come together to share ideas, show and sell new work, and consider how design can be used as a force for good. As part of Melbourne Design Week, Living Edge are presenting two events that explore the concepts of design and sustainability.

Into the Deep with Brodie Neill

In their first event of Melbourne Design Week, ‘Into the Deep,’ Living Edge presents Tasmanian born London-based furniture designer Brodie Neill. Brodie is a pioneer in sustainable product design with underlying sensitivity to form and function. Brodie founded Made in Ratio, a self-designed and self-produced furniture brand, in 2013.

In the live interview hosted by Tamsin O’Neill, Editor of Green Magazine, Brodie discusses his recent work in Hydrowood, a sustainable reclaimed timber sourced from the flooded lakes of central Tasmania.

A special edition Atlas Coffee Table made of Hydrowood will be on display at the event, along with an installation of the material.

Full Circle – Beginning with The End

Living Edge’s second event for Melbourne Design Week, ‘Full circle’, explores the role of architecture and design in a circular economy, taking into consideration architectural design, building materiality, furniture, products, spaces and their evolutionary/ revolutionary use for today and tomorrow.

Living Edge’s panel of leading design experts will discuss the benefits, challenges and opportunities of the circular economy, utilising closed-loop systems to divert end-of-life products and materials from landfills.

Panellists include Woods Bagot’s Sue Fenton, Hassell’s Dan Cox, Breathe Architecture’s Bonnie Herring, Herman Miller’s Gigi Dividge and Living Edge’s Sustainability Strategist, Guy Walsh, and is moderated by Alice Blackwood, Editor of InDesign.
