We’re super excited to be working with Fisher & Paykel  to host two upcoming live events in Sydney!

TDF Talks @ Fisher & Paykel brings together inspiring minds from the worlds of design commentary and architecture, in conversation with TDF Founder and Editor Lucy Feagins.

Tim Ross

Our favourite comedian, TV presenter, author and design lover Tim Ross chats about his emergence as a champion and unlikely spokesperson for Australian design and architecture.

June, 6:30-8:00pm

Tickets $22 – Book here

Penelope Seidler

Best known as an architect, and owner of the iconic Killara House, designed in partnership with husband Harry Seider in 1960, Penelope Seidler reflects on her role as director of Sydney-based architectural firm, Harry Seidler and Associates.

Penelope is also a patron of the visual arts, and has been a member of the International Council of the Museum of Modern Art in New York since 1973. She continues to be a leading figure in Australia’s architecture and design industry.

July 4th, 6:30-8:00pm

Tickets $22 – Book here

We’re so excited to be heading North, and welcoming our Sydney readers to this event series! However, if you’re not Sydney based – never fear. We will also be recording Penelope Seidler’s live conversation for a special podcast, to be released after the event.

The events will take place at the Fisher & Paykel Experience Centre in Alexandria. Find out more about the NZ-born appliance manufacturer and its new innovative products at  Fisherpaykel.com/au/ or follow on Instagram @fisherpaykel.
