Make it late – Melbourne Indesign’s Friday Up Late

There’s nothing more magical than an up-late date with Melbourne city. Finish your day and join us in Melbourne’s CBD for a super hot date with design, this Friday 12 August - 5pm-10pm. Everyone loves a design event, but inevitably there’s work the next day. What if we removed all the work and left only the fun? It’s your date after-dark with the city’s best in design. And it promises to be a night of pure, unbridled  design awesomeness! Melbourne Indesign is excited to present Up Late Indesign, an exclusive Friday evening ‘bar hop’ between five of the city’s top design retailers. And, to up the ante, we’ve thrown in a few of our favourite cultural and fashion brands as well. Teaming up with District, Hub Furniture, NGV, Zenith and Zip, Melbourne Indesign brings the CBD alive with a series of exclusive one-night-only experiences that will set you up for a weekend of design festivities. The evening’s events start with product launch parties, extend to drinks with top international and local design identities, and even include exclusive designer dinners. Teaming up with NGV, Melbourne Indesign also offers Friday nighters a rare first-look at the NGV’s Glenn Murcutt, Architecture of Faith exhibition, pre-opening. Curators Ewan Mceoin and Simone LeAmon (also a Melbourne Indesign Ambassador) will personally walk you through this exciting exploration of Murcutt’s Australian Islamic Centre project at Hobsons Bay, Melbourne. All in all, it’s sizing up to be a pretty hot date-night with design. And, if you stay out just a little too late, not to worry, Melbourne Indesign will be ready and waiting with coffee carts and design love on Saturday. Not even a slight hangover will keep you away from the pure design heaven of Richmond and Collingwood precincts on Saturday 13 August.
