Design Loop

15 - 25 March 2018

Join the DENFAIR Design Loop as we take you on a brand new kind of journey through design. During Melbourne Design Week, 15 Design showrooms and studios will invite you to explore curated installations exploring the theme ‘Celebration of Material’.

Discover the meaning and rationale behind some of your favourite design products, gather a deeper understanding into the design process and experience the profound qualities inherent in design.

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.

Discover participating showrooms and studios below and plan your journey with our interactive map.
