Aussie Design Winner... The spotlight is on Australian design, with Melbourne-based Adam Cornish winning the prestigious 2014 New York Design Awards recently. Adam’s Trinity bowl designed for Italian based company Alessi, received first prize in the homewares category, putting Australian design back on the global map. Trinity bowl was born from self-initiated research into lightweight structure of the Nautilus shell. “Each year the Nautilus adds an extra chamber to its shell, a process that eventually forms a beautiful spiralled structure that is strong yet very light in weight,” says Adam. “My aim was to create a hybrid product that was not only visually inspired by nature, but also a product that uses the inherent logic of nature.” In conjunction with New York Design Week, Adam is among top leading industry experts selected to showcase his designs through the “Alessi Research Lab’ initiative, as part of the WantedDesign 2014 exhibition. The workshop displayed a selection of projects that highlight a specific topic and the related research developed around it; ranging from research in the working of metal wire by Pauline Deltour, LED lighting by Giovanni Alessi Anghini through to nature observation based design by Adam Cornish. Trinity bowl is available from selected David Jones stores, and Alessi www.alessi.com
