We were thrilled to co-host a lunch with NGV Melbourne in celebration of Melbourne Design Week (12-22 March 2020). Inspired by Melbourne’s culture of design, it was an opportunity for connection and collaboration amongst Design Week participating gallerists and designers. In a brief address to attendees, director Neil Hugh Kenna spoke of creative relationships that transcend the “transactional”. Surrounded by values-aligned creatives in the idyllic setting of Congress Wine, designed by Design Office, the idea of nurturing partnerships for the long term seemed rather fitting. With a spread of tasty morsels by Milieu Hospitality, it was a delightful afternoon spent in great company. The anticipation and fervour for Design Week was palpable, and after many engaging and insightful conversations we left with a sense of optimism – for the future of design, and for our industry as a whole.
