External Review provides the chance for the wider community to consider how to better foster thoughtful, intentional and environmentally responsible design while supporting Australian craftsmanship.
Australian Design Centre hosts External Review, a collaboration between award winning designer Tom Fereday, furniture manufacturers Evostyle, upholstery specialists Swiss Design, and the American Hardwood Export Council.
‘It is important for me as a designer to stop and reflect on some of the processes that have become somewhat intuitive in my work. We have become accustomed to working at a fast pace to respond to the demands of the market. Opening my work up to external review is an opportunity to consider how to continue building an environmentally considerate design studio,’ says Fereday.
External Review follows and celebrates the entire design process of a new furniture piece, from the source of the raw material through to manufacture and final presentation with the purpose of shared learning.
