Iron Designer

Costumes, chaos and high-stakes competition.

Studio Binocular designed, programmed and produced one of the highlight events of the State of Design Festival from 2008-2010. Iron Designer saw eight design teams go head-to-head in a cut-throat battle – with 20 minutes to develop a design concept live on stage. The event successfully generated a diverse and enthusiastic following – growing from a sell-out at Trades Hall in 2008 to a sell-out at Federation Square in 2009.

And in the spirit of all great rivalries, we took the show on the road to run sell-out events in both Sydney and Melbourne in 2010. Iron Designer Melbourne played at Federation Square, while Iron Designer Sydney rocked the Powerhouse Museum.

Get ready to rumble!
