OUTR Selected for States of Design Festival

OUTR has been selected to participate in this years States of Design Festival in Melbourne, with their installation 'SOL.a'. The State of Design Festival is the public face of the Victorian Government Design Victoria Strategy. Established in 2004, the Festival is now an annual event.

State of Design Festival increases the awareness of the value of design and showcases how design generates innovation, promotes sustainability and adds value to business and society. Festival programs demonstrate and broadly communicate how the Victorian and Australian design profession can improve living conditions, create sustainable development opportunities, and generate new and innovative products and services; in turn, providing economic benefit for the state of Victoria.
