Celebrating 20 years Space launches the Space+Moooi Design Residency for 2014 on the back of the success of its 2010 programme with Italian manufacturer Edra. Marking two decades this year, it's fitting that Space Furniture is celebrating with a number of key design events that underpin a strong commitment to design and an understanding of the importance of cross-cultural exchange between Australia and its international design partners. In this case connecting Dutch group Moooi with the Australian design scene and supporting the exciting potential of new collaborations with local designers through its Design Residency programme.
Following the success of the inaugural Space Residency held in 2010, Space has just confirmed a partnership with Moooi that will see the successful applicant spend two months with at Moooi HQ in Breda and Amsterdam, The Netherlands, under the guidance of Marcel Wanders, founder, art director and designer and Casper Vissers, founder and CEO.
Both Wanders and Vissers are well known around the world for their commitment to nurturing young designers, which includes hosting the Frame Moooi Awards annually. Their ultimate aim for this residency is to see the winning product become part of Moooi’s collection, offering an incredible opportunity for the successful applicant.
Applications for the Space+Moooi 2014 Design Residency close on Wednesday 30 October at 5pm EST. For all application details and to apply, visit the Space website here.
