Benjamin Hubert & Great Dane

Inspired by the close working relationship among product, process and craftsman, Great Dane’s theme for Saturday in Design is Materiality: Make, Create, Play.

Benjamin Hubert, Saturday in Design’s only international guest, will be leading workshops about his process and materials at 11 am and 3pm on Saturday, August 20 in the Great Dane showroom. The young and energetic English industrial designer is known for pushing boundaries yet maintaining a simple and organic aesthetic.

The process is often just as intriguing as the end product: local artisans will be papercording by hand and creating cork jewellery , inspired by Hubert’s Float light.. These tactile experiences will be an opportunity for guests to see firsthand the time and effort that goes into producing products by hand. 

The day will begin with a traditional smoking ceremony by Uncle Max, a local indigenous elder, to honour Redfern’s roots.

A pop-up farmers market featuring producers from the Eveleigh Market will provide high-quality food with an emphasis on freshness and local sourcing.

At 1pm, Great Dane will draw a winner for a two-night stay at Southern Ocean Lodge in Kangaroo Island (valued at more than $5000).
