Steel: Art Design Architecture


If you’re in Sydney, make sure you get along to visit STEEL: art design architecture at the Australian Design Centre, a major touring exhibition hosted by JamFactory featuring 29 Australian artists, designers and architects. Each exhibitor represents a broad range of disciplines and approaches to working with steel – from hand-crafted jewellery and high-tech research facilities to outdoor furniture (including our very own Tidal lounger designed by Trent Jansen!).

As a material which influences almost all aspects of our lives, the exhibition explores steel in its many manifestations, from the industrial to the more refined and intricate. As such a pervasive and ubiquitous material, the exhibition encourages us to discover the similarities between creative processes, problem-solving, and the design thinking undertaken within each discipline.

Exhibitors: Alison Jackson, Anthill Construction, Barry Gardner, Brodie Neill, BVN, Christian Hall, CODA Studio with Mark Philips, Collins Turner, Cox Architecture, Craig Hiron,  Dan Lorrimer, DesignByThem, Geoffrey Nees, Gunybi Ganambarr, Kensuke Todo, Korban Flaubert, Lorraine ConnellyNorthey, Mari Funaki, Matthew Harding, Maureen Faye, Chauhan, Misho and Associates, Oliver Smith, Sabine Pagan, Sean O’Connell, Seaton McKeon, Simon Cottrell, Sue Lorraine, Tony Hobba and Trent Jansen for TAIT
