    Project - 13.09.2017

    As a major partner of the Arts Fair, Living Edge hosted a Pecha Kucha style talk, debuted the new brand EDITION and received the opportunity to display our furniture and furnishings in a contemporary fit-out for the VIP room styled by Jo Mawhinney, Head of Retail at Living Edge.

    The Pecha Kucha talk, hosted by Living Edge in partnership with Habitus Magazine, featured six of the industry's most inspired minds as they shared 20 seconds on 20 slides on a topic of their choice.

    Living Edge's Jo Mawhinney shared on the topic: art as furniture, Alexander Lotersztain, founder of Derlot and Les Basic shared on: traveling without moving - a nomadic journey of design, designer and master curator Don Cameron spoke on: domestic design as portrayed in Italian films of the 70s Andy Fairgrieve, Glenfiddich Curator presented on: abandoned nuclear monitoring posts of the Scottish Highlands, and Amrita Hepi, performer and activist presented on: a brief history of power moves.

    For the VIP space, the Sydney Contemporary organizers had envisioned a modern space; one which mirrored the passion evident across all aspects of the event, their brand and business. Jo hoped to create a space that encouraged engagement, enhanced the experience of the VIP guests while providing visitors with a lasting impression.

    Jo brought the vision to life using a range of products from Living Edge, including pieces from Walter Knoll, MUUTO, Herman Miller and several collectible Marc Newson and Eames products.
