This post is running a little [OK maybe a lot late -seeing as DesignEx was back in the end of April -without going into too much detail lets just say I am experiencing technical difficulties with post layouts and being a horrible perfectionist I have been reluctant to post if it doesn't look right...] but here it is at last - i spy DesignEX 2009 highlights.
Those unfamiliar with DesignEx need to know its Australia's Design trade show that alternates annually between Melbourne and Sydney. Melbourne was host to 2009's show.
What a great way to display wall tiles, this eye catching display was from Bespoke Tile & Stone. I especially love the leather tiles [above bottom]
The Fisher & Paykel Izona Cool Drawer is such a innovative product [click on link to see other great Izona product]. I love it when designers strip away all preconceptions of an everyday item and address functionality and aesthetics as if they are designing a product that has never existed. The Cool Drawer can be a freezer, fridge, pantry or wine store with its different temp settings and as you can see from the images it can be fully integrated. I have a feeling we will be seeing a lot of this product in hotel rooms, so much better that the traditional mini bar, or maybe in bedside drawers as was also seen on this stand, you can use your imagination to think about what advantage this may be...
Love to know what you think, please leave us a comment...
