An exciting new book, Hightide – Queensland Design Now, by Jason Bird, was recently launched at Dwell on Design, LA through the wearethetastemakers event by Quench and will be launched in Queensland in early August.
The book features twenty-two prominent Queensland Designers and their work produced between 2002 – 2012. A brief summary by the editors of Hightide follows:
Once best known for its beaches and idyllic, tropical climate, over the past decade Queensland has emerged as a wellspring of design innovation. High Tide is the first book to capture the output of this vibrant centre of contemporary Australian design. Sumptuously presented, it features furniture, object and industrial design by some of Australia’s most highly regarded creative talents, including Alexander Lotersztain, Christina Waterson, Marc Harrison and many others.
For a great Hightide flick through video by Bjorn Rust visit Bjorn’s blog. (Bjorn was the Creative Director and Designer behind the book’s look and feel). To get your hands on your very own copy of Hightide you can buy it online through Uromedia.
Thank you again to the Hightide team and congratulations to all of the designers featured.
