Saturday InDesign – Sydney 2011

Saturday in Design is an annual event showcasing the best in local and international design brands. For two days, parts of Sydney around Alexandria, Surry Hills, Darlinghurst, Redfern, Waterloo and Chippendale turn into an open showroom environment.

Although a trade event for the design community, interested members of the public were granted registration and access to the various venues.

Complimentary shuttle buses facilitated access around the seven precincts that made up the event. Several venues provided refreshments, canapés, food and drink catered on their premises. Among the familiar were David Allison’s Stix Catering, the baristas from Single Origin Roasters and Chris Cranswick-Smith‘s Private Chef Solutions, the catering arm of  Emmilou Tapas Bar. Café Ish put on a sausage sizzle and a hot dog stand was set up in front of Thinking Ergonomix.

Below is a photographic snapshot of the event.

  1. Fun event. Sounds like a veritable design/food/drink feast!

    • It was certainly a lot of fun getting exposure to some cool designs. As for the food and drink on offer, it was rather impressive. I can’t comment more as we had a dinner that evening to go to so we didn’t indulge apart from the odd drink :)

  2. Looks like a lot of fun & like there was plenty of food and drink to keep you going for lots of browsing through the show!

    how were the drinks in test tubes? Someone gave me some testtubes for making cocktails in and I’ve not gotten around to it because I’m trying to think of something that would be particularly suitable for that.

    • There was a lot to eat and drink at some venues, cocktails included! The test tube cocktail was a little on the sweet side but with a kick from the gin. It looked fiddly to make if you’re making it at home. It was fun to watch them make it! Let us know what you end up making with your set!

  3. I like the little record player. Ooh and the bread and cup cakes. Trust you to sniff out the foodie goodies there.

  4. I would be interested in knowing a bit more about design items on the day. Great design can bring such pleasure to everyday life even in the simplest of items. Loved the article and event. Craig

    • There was so much around that made you stop and think. In fact, in some places you could feel the creative energy from the people around. It was amazing!
