This year at Denfair 2017, District presented the latest works by Mattiazzi, Resident and – for the first time in Melbourne – Magis, along with the new addition of Giopato & Coombes.
Direct from the Milan Furniture Fair – new pieces by leading international designers (including Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec, Konstantin Gricic, and Tim Rundle) – were shown for the first time in Australia.
Whilst District represents a number of other leading Australian and International brands, the context of presenting these brands together, is to highlight the relationship of centuries old craftsmanship with twenty-first century industries, technologies, and of course, modern lifestyles.
District hopes to draw attention to the details of each piece on display and consider the skills of craftsmen and craftswomen behind each piece – as well as the innovation of leading contemporary designers.
