The Ketel One Commission, celebrating the heritage of craftsmanship, has opened at the Pin-up Space in Melbourne.

The exhibition showcases the work of sixteen Melburnian creatives, working in fields such as graphic design, architecture, furniture design and photography, who responded to a brief to reveal their creative process, while also articulating their views on the importance of craftsmanship in the modern world.

The exhibition, held at The Compound Interest: Centre For Applied Arts, is curated by Ewan McEoin and invites the viewer to explore each participant’s journey through a multi-panel display area designed by Edwards Moore. It includes exhibits from Jessie Fairweather of The Foundry and Aaron Moodie and Colin Tretcher of People Collective.

The entries were judged by an expert panel, with furniture designer and founder of Flatland OK, Tim Fleming, deemed the winner. Fleming’s entry, ’2114 Cult of Stealth’ is a fictional museum display of “ceremonial objects used to worship by the stealth bomber by the ‘Cult of Stealth’…  after ‘The Fall’.” Fleming wins himself a trip to Dutch Design week, plus a visit to the Nolet Distillery in Schiedam.

If you’re in Melbourne, do drop by the exhibition – it runs from Thursday 26 May – Saturday 28 May at Pin-up Architecture & Design Space, The Compound Interest, 15-25 Keele Street, Collingwood.
