The latest furniture, accessories, textures, finishes, art and talented creators will be on show at Designers Saturday 2013 (DS13). Held on Saturday, November 23, the event lets the Adelaide design community and exhibitors come together and share new innovations and ideas in a way that is different from other events. DS13 works by letting you into showrooms across the CBD and see new products, build their business connections, and discover emerging talent. Building on the success of DS11, you will be able to check in at the Queen’s Theatre, collecting a daypack with your itinerary, and follow the map to each exhibitor. Each showroom offers something a little different; some have new product launches,others reconfigure and reinterpret their space into something new, and you might even win a giveaway or a door prize. Some exhibitors collaborate to give you a total look; for example, bespoke accessory makers might team up with a furniture and flooring supplier. The results are stunning and may make you see a combination of elements in a new light. Building on the success of DS11, the Queen’s Theatre will double as a vibrant exhibition space with a concentration of furniture, accessories and more, all under one roof. I am proud to launch Local by Design, an exhibition of the best works from local design students and recent graduates in disciplines including interior, industrial and graphics. The show promises to inspire you with what our brightest emerging minds are able to create. The DIA is proud to again be hosting this event, unique in its approach to be an informative and accessible day for both participants and exhibitors. Be part of the ongoing exhibition that is Adelaide design.
