Emerging Designers Inside Nights

Charlwood Design is proudly participating in the Emerging Designers Inside Nights for 2014.

The event, ran by DIA Victoria Tasmania & Emerging Designers, provides an opportunity to meet the creative design talents behind a bunch of studios across Melbourne. Students and recent graduates will be granted exclusive access to some of the cities top rated studios, giving an 'inside look' at their day to day routines.

This year will showcase a whole range of different disciplines, and it is recommended you get in quick as tickets will most likely sell out.

So if you want to see what we get up to here at our Collingwood Studio, get on board! It should be a great night. Tickets can be purchased here.

For more updates follow Inside Nights on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

Premiers Design Awards 2014

Good Design Australia and the Victorian Government recently announced the 38 finalists across six categories for the 2014 Premier’s Design Awards.

Charlwood Design is pleased that two of our designs have been selected as finalists within the Product category, with the Elevare Shower Step and Classical Fingers being nominated. There are only nine finalists in total, which made the announcement even sweeter! We look forward to the Awards Presentation Ceremony in September this year.

The news of the Premiers Design Award finalists follows on from our recent award at the Good Design Australia Awards held in Sydney earlier this year, in which Classical Fingers took home a Good Design Award. Additionally, Classical Fingers was also selected as part of the prestigious Powerhouse Museum selection, where it will be added to the permanent collection of Australian Industrial Design and exhibited in "Success and Innovation" gallery for one year.

We want to congratulate and thank our clients Elevare and Cloudbreak Music for allowing us the opportunity to develop these amazing products. Be sure to check out both the Elevare Shower Step and Classical Fingers websites for more information on each product.
