Sydney’s first ever installation of The Design Files Open House has finally met the promise of its name by actually opening. This Thursday, The Design Files creator, Lucy Feagins, will throw the doors wide on the ‘ultimate stylised Australian home,’ a specially curated residential house filled with Feagins' favourite things.
Pieces by over 70 carefully hand-picked designers and artists will transform the converted warehouse in Surry Hills. The walls are plastered with artwork by the likes of Esther Stewart, Kirra Jamison and Leah Fraser; pillows by Line on the Side; Jardan furniture; and the primeval forms of Dinosaur Designs sit next to Susan Frost’s delicately coloured ceramics.
Also on show will be a selection of stationery by Alice Oehr and Inky Co; jewellery by Emeldo and Emily Green; and kids’ stuff by Maiike (the full range of suppliers can be viewed here).
The difference between walking through the Design Files Open House and shuffling through a stylish friend’s home is that if you like something, you’re actually encouraged to take it with you. Everything on show in the Open House is available for sale over the course of its four-day residency.
Supported by the City of Sydney’s Creative City 2030 initiative, The Design Files Open House is expected to attract over 10,000 visitors during its residency, so we encourage you to get there early.
