In House Designed Made

Start date: June 29, 2017

End date: July 22, 2017

Objects developed in the intimate space of the studio, designed for the intimate space of the house.

(adj. ˈɪnˌhaʊs; adv. -ˈhaʊs) within, conducted within, or utilizing an organization’s own staff or resources rather than external facilities

In a micro design business, many tasks are performed in-house.

For designers at the prototyping stage, it can be difficult and expensive to source expert advice and hi-tech tools. They therefore often need to acquire new knowledge, skills and techniques, to translate the objects in their heads into physical products “in-house”.

Along the way, they often discover unknown proficiencies, taking projects in unexpected and exciting directions and suggesting new possibilities for future work.

In-House is an exhibition of designed objects by artists from the designed:made inc. collective, a group of designers, makers and artists working with timber, glass, ceramics, metal and textiles. For In-House, each designer/maker/artist chose to focus on an object, destined for use within the home, with many exhibitors exploring new ways of working.
