FURNITURE DESIGN
- NATIONAL GALLERY OF VICTORIA
MID-CENTURY MODERN
Australian Furniture Design

Innovative furniture design took hold in Australia following World War Two,
prompted in part by the availability of new materials (and sometimes the
shortages of others), the development of new production techniques and the
influx of European immigrants who were skilled in the traditions of fine furniture
making. Taking their cue from international trends in furniture, local designers
adopted the pared-back language of modernism to create stylish sculptural
furniture that was functional and flexible and which found the ideal setting in the
modernist architecture of the period.

The exhibition will focus on the work of figures including
Grant Featherston,
Clement Meadmore, Douglas Snelling, Gordon Andrews, Fred Lowen, Lester
Bunbury and Schulim Krimper.

Hattie STEWART - Illustrator
and Artist

We can all doodle, but not all of us
can doodle like this.
In recent years her notoriety has
increased due to a project aptly
titled
'doodle-bombing' where she
draws over the covers of influential
publications such as
Interview and
Vogue.

TYPOGRAPHY

KERNTYPE - a kerning game

Your mission is simple: achieve
pleasant and readable text by
distributing the space between
letters. Typographers call this
activity
kerning.
Your solution will be compared to a
typographer's solution, and you will
be given a score depending on
how close you nailed it. Good luck!
