These included Edward Linacre's Weave Pendant, which was developed through the combination of tra- ditional craft processes and mod- ern CAD (computer aided design) techniques; Chris Vincent's LAMP 103 collection, a collection of elegant three-legged lamps in- spired by paper folding and sim- plicity; and Dusko Lapcevic's Iris Lighting range, a series of decorat- ive lights made from expanded mesh disks. Seating was a popular theme, with a diverse range of eco- friendly chairs and stools includ- ing, Shane Talbot's Skol Cups, developed through playing with leftover concrete and glazed cer- amic; Ash Allen's Skip Stool, an easy to disassemble stool made of salvaged Tasmanian oak dowel and recycled rubber tire crumb; and Talia Michelle Halls Pins Table Collection, made of recycled timber and cabriole legs.
