Launch Pad is an important design initiative, promoting the support and development of Australian product design through a unique, interactive program of events.
The Launch Pad program provides the local and international design community with a vital avenue to nurture and celebrate original, authentic and innovative emerging Australian design, thus supporting and cultivating the careers of those product designers involved.
The depth and breadth of Launch Pad goes far beyond its annual exhibition of prototypes. The expertly curated Launch Pad program of events also promotes real relationships between people, ideas and products in design.
Saturday in Design is an annual trade event for the design community, which began in Sydney in 2003, and now alternates each year between Sydney and Melbourne. This year in 2012, Saturday in Design celebrates its 10th anniversary.
The event involves Australia’s premier designer furniture, finishes, fixtures and lighting showrooms opening their doors on a Saturday to allow architects, designers, students and design-savvy members of the public to enjoy the products they specify, in a showroom environment.
