Opening their doors from today, Perth’s premiere three-day event, Design Circus, is back!
Shining the spotlight on Western Australia’s design scene, the event aims to educate visitors through interactive workshops (with world-renowned designers), design competitions and exhibitions from leading international brands such as Moroso, Fritz Hansen, Foscarini, Kettal and Nanimarquina.
Hosted by Mobilia, Design Circus’ special guests include much-loved curator Pepe Garcia, ceramicist and designer Xavier Mañosa from Apparatu and co-founder and editor of Santa and Cole, Nina Masó (all from Spain). However, the big international draw-card is acclaimed design duo Jonathan Levien and Nipa Doshi from Doshi Levien Studio (London) who will candidly discuss their design story and experiences at Doshi Levien: A Conversation.
“The intention of the Design Circus is to bring like-minded, design oriented companies together with our local design community to grow the culture and understanding of design in Western Australia” says managing director, Salvatore Fazzari. “Doshi Levien will be the highest profile designers to ever have presented in Perth and we are super excited to welcome them to our great city.”
Visitors can also see inspiring designs from local artists and designers as well as work from the 2015 Milan Furniture Fair. Entry to the Design Circus exhibition is free and takes place from today to Thursday 3 December at the State Theatre, Perth.
