Opening this Friday 19th of July and continuing throughout Saturday the 20th in Brisbane, Proto-type is a special weekend event where affordable, locally designed and made furniture and small-run publishing will be available for sale.  Developed by Paul Owen of Owen and Vokes and Peters and Dan Pike of The Letter D and Capital P, Proto-type is a micro-market of local design, making and selling.

According to the organisers, Proto-type was founded to create more immediacy and accessibility between Brisbane designers, makers, authors and the public, and it also serves as an opportunity to highlight and showcase great local talent and products. It’s a small-scale, independent experiment where you can discover a viable way to directly make and sell work in the local area.

Proto-type will open with a wine and cheese night from 6pm — late on Friday 19th July at King George Chambers, 500 George Street, Brisbane (opposite the Transit Centre).

The event will continue the following day with a beer and skittles Saturday afternoon from 12–6pm at Toby Scott Studio, 515B Sandgate Road, Clayfield (cnr Reeve and Barlow Streets).
