DENFAIR Design Loop

During Melbourne Design Week, take a different kind of tour with us in appreciation for the design process and motivation. DENFAIR Design Loop is a brand new event where a curated selection of Melbourne’s best design showrooms responding to the theme ‘Celebration of Material’ where the focus is on the history, rationale and emotional quality of materials in selected furniture products realised as an installation.

Particularly in the field of furniture, design offers an experience, a tangible relationship with the designer’s choices. Although design is often judged only by our visual senses,

the real qualities inherent in the design are discovered once we engage with the pieces using our bodies.

In order to appreciate the engagement a designer has with the materials they use, participating showrooms will design an installation and host public talks which offers a dialog with fabric, leather, wood and other raw materials commonly used in design.
