Event Details

Cafes the new ' Cultural institutions of the Social media age ' - Places of community engagement , debate and dialogue.

The owners of South of Johnston (SOJO) offer a night of locally sourced food in a beautiful environment to discuss ideas of design in the contemporary community living room - the cafe.

Hosted by Simon Carver and Stuart McKenzie, this is a chance to hear from designers and architects working with food and design of the space that seemingly belongs to everyone.

SOJO - Our philosophy was to design a space that responded to our demographic - many Collingwood apartment dwellers - with small , limited spaces - Not conducive to large groups and provide a space which emulated a familiar sense of home and internment place to socialize , converse with an aesthetic experiential atmosphere.

This event will focus on how Design can play a role in providing the environment and atmosphere for people to engage, analysis and debate in the cafe environment.

Interior design Anna Pipkorn from Pipkorn & Kilpatrick 
Architect David Carabott from CHT Architects 
Designer Cindy Lee Davies from LIGHTY 
Graphic Designer Fiona McKerrell from FiMac

The speakers will discuss there understanding on how this new cafe-culture phenomenon has provided a new framework for designers to provide spaces of interest - The new Cultural institutions of the 21st Century.

Bookings essential and limited standing event.

$50 per person, food and wines included.

Design Matters

Design is about being clever with what you’ve got. It’s about solving your problems in a way that works with your limitations. Any community that wants to make the most out of its future in a world of limited resources needs a strong Design culture at its core.

This is why Design Matters.

The Victorian Department of Economic Development, Jobs, Transport and Resources has partnered with The Design Foundation to establish Design Matters. We exist to highlight, celebrate and nurture all forms of design in the state of Victoria. Our goal is to help raise awareness of the role of design as a catalyst for innovation to raise standards of living and increase economic prosperity.

We have created this online portal to promote design activities, initiatives, news and resources throughout the state of Victoria. The intention is for this portal to be a community driven initiative and we welcome your submissions for inclusion in the calendar of events.

Design Matters will also be responsible for coordinating a festival of design: Melbourne International Design Week. We welcome your ideas and proposals.
