Five people, five ideas, five businesses in the making: the Intersection Pop-up Shop is an offering of works by Brisbane based design practitioners Nora Kinnunen, Suzie Wiley, Jennifer Marchant, Kylie Bickle and Paul Fairweather.
This pop-up shop showcases the progress of a facilitated workshop process called Intersection 1:01 by Ideas (www.idaes.com.au). It is the intersection of creativity and business; about challenging and supporting creatives in an exploration of business models, idea generation and creative strategy.
The participants in this workshop have in common that they have each expanded their respective disciplines to generate exciting ideas into new creative businesses.
Intersection Pop-Up Shop will include:
Paul Fairweather, instigator of the Intersection concept has developed Tree2house, a thoughtful gift of two tree seeds: each to be planted, with one being used to build the treehouse into, the other to be cut down and used to build the treehouse from. This brings to life the endangered skill of treehouse building and enjoyment!
Marchi is the new brand of designer Jennifer Marchant to bring together her love of nature, photographer, drawing and printing. The unique patterns, derived from Ausralia native flora, designed by Jennifer are placed onto items felt by the body such as throws, cushions, pyjamas and wraps.
Architect Suzie Wiley and her company Surroundings explores new processes to educate and enable people within their own environments to design, edit and grow in their space. Her participatory games and workshops expand on this idea to help people discover the unique preferences that they desire in their space.
The Kip and Brand fashion label by Kylie Bickle explores the place where art, design and craft intersect. She draws upon her cross-disciplinary design career to re-interpret an object's purpose and context by manipulating scale and material. Working with organically tanned kangaroo leather, she launched her collection of wearable accessories in 2011, with interior items coming in 2013.
The promotion of the Endangered Skill concept has lead Nora Kinnunen and her family to establish a new design brand Son of Martin. Spanning Finland and Australia, this collaboration of design, skills and craft is developing high quality products for the home and person using endangered skills.
