With experience comes deep insight – and our four INDE Awards Luminaries of 2020 have it in spades. Hailing from Indonesia, Hong Kong and Australia, their stories of practice through the years reveal not only their own drivers but also facets of context. Through their stories, we find windows to the conditions in which they practice – how things are, and how they hope things will be in future. Each story is unique as written by the architects and designers in their own words. It is an honour to share their journeys with you in a series of articles.
Ross Gardam tells us about the driving forces behind his Melbourne studio, where products of rigour and refinement are developed in a way that will elicit an emotional response and bring value to people.
“There is a high level of rigour involved in my studio’s processes to achieve the degree of refinement sought. These processes typically incorporate a number of non-emotional considerations to ensure each product has value; for example analysing the intent of use, manufacturing processes, disciplined material use, and ergonomics. The pursuit of the new is something we constantly dance with.”
