The Good Room: Viennese Designers in Australia
Presented by Duldig Studio

Duldig Studio

During the postwar period the modern family home assumed a special place for Australians. Planning for modernity became key activities for budding home-makers. In 1945 “The Australian Home Beautiful”, published a series of articles entitled “Joanna Plans A home” which was a frank and exploratory dialogue between an Australian housewife and a Viennese émigré designer. 

Through the eyes of Joanna, Harriet Edquist, Professor of Architectural History at RMIT, examines the influence of Viennese émigré designers in Australia, to expose a more complex picture of the impact of émigré and refugee Viennese designers and architects on modern Australian design practice.
