The Hill Street Precinct Project came together as part of Sydney Indesign and as a collaboration of 4 amazing teams from Workshopped, Euroluce, Arthur G and Luxmy Furniture.
Like an unison of like-minded people seeking to make a valid statement on the problem of replicas, we’ve teamed up with the creative minds from Design by Toko and with the assistance of the Whitehouse Institute of Design, created a provoking statement in the shape of a 3.5 meters tall ‘Bonfire of Replicas’.
“It takes thousands of dollars and a huge amount of creativity and hard work to produce original design. After all the prototyping, tooling and marketing expenses involved in commercialisation, it is heartbreaking to see works from our collection and fellow local businesses ruthlessly ripped off with no respect for the designer or manufacturer involved in bringing that product to life. It’s time to take a stand!” says Priyanka Rao of Luxmy Furniture.
You can still visit the sculpture until the 23rd of August at 2 Short Street, Surry Hills – Sydney, NSW.
