From the iconic Sherrin to Redheads Safety Matches and the Oates All Australian Mop Bucket, the ingenuity of Victorian designers is captured in the Design Institute of Australia’s (DIA) current exhibition, 175 Years of Victorian Design.
This is the eighth exhibition staged at DIA’s Design Gallery since the contemporary space was launched in Melbourne’s Collins Street in May 2010. Showcased as part of an annual program are design projects across multiple disciplines throughout Australia spanning experimental, conceptual and unbuilt design from student work, post graduate through to mid and late career designers. The essence of the current exhibition is closely aligned to DIA’s standing as Australia’s only multi-disciplinary professional design body.
