Welcome to Object magazine issue 62.
Issue 62 of Object magazine opens the doors to modern design Studios, from architecture to handmade jewellery, as well as featuring an extensive essay on sustainable fashion by Marie O’Mahony. It also begins to explore how you navigate the issue - three contents pages and tagged entries allow you to ‘choose your own adventure’ as you find your way through this edition.
Issue 62 focuses on ‘studios’: we talk to architects Donovan Hill about exploring the site rather than the building, as well as architecture-based Healthabitat, about the process they use to merge health and design. Design thinking appears to be taking the world by storm as we highlight three practices using the emerging methodology in different ways: BikeTank, 24HRs2MC and Design Emergency. Meanwhile Collider merges art and design with their work for the likes of the Sydney Theatre Company and the 18th Biennale of Sydney.
We expose the studio makings of jeweller Cinnamon Lee who works heavily with technology and rapid prototyping in her jewellery and lighting practice. Lee’s laborious hand-finished products share this theme with the work of Lola Greeno — an indigenous shell-worker — who will be honoured as Object’s 2014 Living Treasure.
Fashion designers Serpent and The Swan combine sculpture with their garments, while Vert Design combine industrial work with artistic in their studio. Meanwhile, MAD Open Studios provide a unique space for design practice, and Linda van Niekerk appropriates components from other designers into beautiful and unique jewellery in her show for the Design Centre - Tasmania.
A collection of written word, images and video, Object magazine issue 62 continues to deliver exciting and original content from Object: Australian Centre for Design.
