Friday Program

MID16 is shaking things up, with a day dedicated to learning, playing and exploring. Friday at MID offers up a jam-packed roster of industry talks, workshops and architecture tours.

In addition to the roster of official events, Friday night will see the inaugural session of Up Late in the CBD.

Friday Night Showrooms

Friday night sees the introduction of “Up Late” to Melbourne Indesign, where showrooms across the CBD will extend their business hours to provide late night entertainment and showcase design ideas.

Whether permanent or pop-up, these showrooms are the portals to the best of furniture, lighting, flooring, fixtures and fittings – the best Australian design has to offer.
