DESIGN CONCEPT TO REALITY FUNKY DESK IS A WINNER Janita Singh Ash Allen (above) with his Skip Stool and (inset) David Hardwick with Unfold Desk. SYDNEY designer David Hardwick made his mark with a very funky and functional Unfold Desk at a show for new and emerging designers. VIVID (Vibrant Visions in Design) is Australia's longest running design compe- tition for new and emerging designers. In its 10th year, VIVID showcased 100 innovative pieces by 50 designers at FURNITEX, co-located with Decoration + Design in Melbourne. Hardwick's entry took out the Concept Award Winning prize. Unfold Desk is a laptop/tablet worksta- tion with a concealed desktop, opening to an expanded workspace with built-in speakers, cable management and storage. A combin- ation of bamboo board, aluminium and mild steel were used in the construction. A STYLISH SELECTION VIVID curator Uli Hasel said this year's selection featured some high quality, very refined and funky products with lots of colour. Many were made from recycled material. Two areas of focus included: Lighting emerged as the focus for sub- missions, with more than 20 lights and lamps entered. These included Edward Linacre's Weave Pendant, which was devel- oped through the combination of traditional craft processes and modern CAD (computer aided design) techniques; Chris Vincent's LAMP 103 collection (pictured), a collection of elegant three-legged lamps inspired by paper folding and simplicity; and Dusko Lapcevic's Iris Lighting range, a stunning series of decorative lights made from expanded mesh disks. Seating was a popular theme, with a diverse range of eco-friendly chairs and stools in many designs including, Shane Talbot's Skol Cups, developed through playing with leftover concrete and glazed ceramic; Ash Allen's Skip Stool, an easy to disassemble stool cleverly made of salvaged Tasmanian oak dowel and recycled rubber tire crumb.
