2017 DESIGN TASMANIA AWARD PEOPLES CHOICE WINNER

Congratulations to Murray Antill for taking out the 2017 People's Choice Award with his work Wave Stereo Console.

It was a close result with Murray winning by 16 votes out of a total of 625.

The Wave Stereo Console was designed as a response to the idea that many of us, through the pressures of modern living, have lost the time to stop and truly listen. It is a hand-made resonance of sound, sight, and touch; a sensuous work intended to reignite the romance of listening.

The work aims to recapture the ritual of using a significant piece of furniture to play our music collection, and seamlessly integrates wireless technology with sustainable Tasmanian Oak to bring a full listening experience.

Aesthetically, the vibration of sound is replicated and embodied in the solid wood, the waves captured and transformed, to be seen and felt, not only by ears, but fingers too.

The Wave Stereo Console was designed and developed to a prototype stage for November 2015.

 

A voter was pulled out of the 625 votes to win a collection of all the small works from the Top Ten, Congratulations Peter Scanlan,

Supported by Foot & Playstead, Murray will receive $1000 worth of printing.
