Sponsorship of D/Zine

Renowned Furniture has recently been invited to sponsor and attend the launching of D/Zine, a university based magazine published each semester by The Dub – a design collective set up by students of the new School of Design within the QUT Creative Industries faculty.

Held at Jamie’s Espresso at James St. on June 18th, the launch went well with attendance of about 100 people including sponsors, university staff and students and friends.There were speeches acknowledging our significant contribution. And everyone who attended the event received a copy of the latest edition of the D/ZINE and invited to partake in the emerging artist auction.

The magazine’s latest issue had the theme ‘design narrative’. The meaning of design process and storytelling through the works of local and international designers and artists were explored by the feature stories. Page 2 of the mag has a full page picture of one of our pieces taken from the website! 🙂

The café (Jamie’s Espresso bar) was pumping with tunes by Mat the cool DJ (who also helped me with the furniture) The free food and drinks were a hit too.

News Flash! The Twins

We at Renowned Furniture have started clearing out our showroom stock to make way for some of our new amazing designs. Some of the pieces being offered are 2013 winners that we entered in the state and national furniture design and manufacture awards.

 

Chris has snapped up “The Twins” for almost half price and has them in pride of place at his western suburbs home.
