I-CONIC Australian Design


05 September 2019, 11:00 AM — 19 September 2019, 5:00 PM

SASA Gallery, Kaurna Building, Fenn Pl, City West Campus, University of South Australia

I-CONIC celebrates award winning and innovative Australian industrial design and features iconic designs from the 1880s to the present day. Over 50 products designed in Australia including the Wiltshire Staysharp knife, DĂ©cor BYO wine cooler, Eveready Dolphin torch, Rosebank Stack Hat, and the Britax baby capsule will be on display.

In Australia, some innovations were the result of our unique climate and lifestyle, like the Esky, but others like the Britax baby capsule and the Kambrook powerboard celebrate the capacity of our industrial design profession to bring a world first innovation to a global market.

Curated by Monash University Senior Lecturer in Industrial Design Ian Wong.

I-CONIC Australian Design was first presented at Monash University in March 2019 with support from the Design Institute of Australia.

See I-CONIC from Thursday September 5 to Thursday September 19, 11AM-5PM, Monday-Sunday.
