Mint Design take over Designist, George’s St. 24 May – 3 June 2012 to launch furniture range. Designist on George’s Street will host Mint Design’s takeover of the shop from 24 May – 3 June 2012 to launch their inaugural product range.
As one of Designist’s series of ‘Uproar’ pop-up shops, Mint will encourage Cultural Quarter shoppers to take a break on their Tod Stool and enjoy the sensation of the cleverly designed cushion. Mint’s unique style of furniture lends itself perfectly to interaction and conversation.
The giveaway, dubbed Blue Steel for the Blue Stool invites members of the public to upload photos of their best ‘Blue Steel’ pose to Facebook.com/DesignByMint in order to win a one-off, special edition designer stool, which will be on show during the pop-up-shop in Designist.
The stool will be on sale in Designist from the 24th May along with other furniture and gardenware items from Mint Design. The call for ‘Blue Steel’ poses is open now and one lucky person will be announced as the winner of the limited edition stool during the launch party on Thurday, 24th May.
Light up your world and visit design at its best, 19 Irish lighting designers will come together to showcase their latest work at The Malthouse Design Centre. The event will run for two weeks from May 17th to 31st and is open to the public.
Inspirational designers are launching their ranges, some for the first public viewing such as Kathryn Payne and Aislinn Lynch who have been working with the Mentorship Academy at the Malthouse set up by Duff/Tisdall; while other designers are well established and already exporting all around the world.
Rachel O’Neill from Banbridge in Northern Ireland has an exciting copper finish range of chandeliers, very much in demand on the west coast of America. Shane Holland has just completed a striking commission for a client in Montpelier, France. Furniture designers Cillian Johnson and Pat Casserley extend their furniture ranges to include warm wood featured lights to compliment the home. Young designers Fiona Snow and Klickety challenge the versatility of cut-out coloured shaped lamps at affordable prices. Glasshammer and Sasha Sykes use translucency of glass and resin to create interesting nature-inspired chandeliers and table lamps. Locker13 Shane Wilson and Karl Metcalfe use clever re-invention of the common day Comfort fabric conditioner bottle to recreate a featured lamp. Other featured designers include Niki Collier, Anthony Cleary, Jennifer Slattery, Nostalgia, Mel Bradley, Mint Design and Kooyong design.
