The Other Hemisphere

The Other Hemishere – a unique exhibition of Australian Design in Milan, including new designs by Daniel : Emma (bottom left) and Blakebrough+King (bottom right).

SO Milan design week wrapped up over a week ago now, and even though it has been mentioned already on our fab guest blog last Friday, I am COMPELLED to share highlights today from just one very special Milan event!

The Other Hemisphere exhibition was curated by the ever-versatile Sarah K (one half of design duo Blakebrough+King, and also one half of last week’s guest blogging Supercyclers!).  The show brought together a seriously BRILLIANT group of both emerging and established Australian designers, with a collection of inspired new designed objects.  The Other Hemisphere was, in fact, the only dedicated group exhibition of Australian design in Milan this year, and all credit goes to the brilliant Sarah K for her single-minded vision to make it happen!

I have so many FAVOURITES from this show!  Perhaps the most mesmerising is Flynn Talbot‘s orb-like X+Y Lamp… SO amazing!  Have I been under a rock?  How did I not know about Flynn Talbot!  Originally from Perth, Flynn is currently living and working in Berlin.

I’m also seriously coveting Blakebrough+King‘s new Sound Made Visible ceramics – tableware imprinted with graphic patterns that depict sound frequencies… ohhh sooo cool.  And then of course there’s Daniel : Emma, whose new spherical series is bound to pop up in *Wallpaper magazine before the year is out.

Do pop over to The Other Hemisphere website to check out the full collection – and keep an eye out because the show will be exhibited in Sydney very soon… I’ll keep you posted!
