NGV // Melbourne Design Week 2018 // Decoding Design
Three designers, three nationalities, three cultures and three design disciplines join forces to decode each other’s cultural cliches through interpretive design.
Yan Huang a Chinese Automotive Designer, Manuel Canestrini a German Architect and Ilan El an Israeli Industrial Designer, interpret archetypical and traditional items.
‘Decoding Design’ explores our cultural preconceived ideas and how these affect our expectations. Each individual designer investigates a cultural perception and create a new object. ‘Decoding Design’ harnesses design effects to inform how preconceived cultural ideas can manifest through product design.
This was part of Melbourne Design Week 2018, an initiative by Creative Victoria in partnership with NGV.
