Dear colleague


This information is sent on behalf Briony Galligan who worked on the Top
Designs Exhibition and is now working on the Melbourne Fringe Furniture



fringe furniture designer talks

Fringe Furniture has grown over its 26-year history to claim a critical
position in

Melbourne's design calendar. Fringe Furniture 2010 is an experimental

of furniture, lighting design, homewares, wearable objects, permanent

ephemeral works.

As the urban sprawl continues its outward creep, Fringe Furniture 2010
looks at the

encounters between the city and its others. Designers were challenged to

the spirit of a landscape fast disappearing, with this year's theme The
City has a Face,

the Country has a Soul. The Substation in Newport, is the perfect host
for this

stunning exhibition.

What are the designer talks?

* Hear Fringe Furniture designers speak about their works, career
objectives and

design practice; they analyse the purpose, processes and products
associated with

their designs.

* Designers explain their works; from concept development, to material

and production process. The talks are targeted towards Design and
Technology and

Studio Arts students. The talks have strong focus on designers and
artists responses

to social, economic and environmental choices and decision making.

* The talks are FREE and held in the exhibition space to complement this

exhibition. The Substation is next to the train station, Williamston and

lines so the exhibition is easily accessible.
