Surprise your loved one this Valentine’s Day with a pre-dinner drink at The Potter’s Cocktail Hour. Enjoy our latest exhibition with a Four Pillars Gin tasting or a gin cocktail, transporting you back to the lifestyle of the fifties.
In the 1950s mid-century tastemakers sought to shape post-war Melbourne into a thriving and cosmopolitan city. For just over a decade, Clement Meadmore produced a small range of innovative furniture and lighting designs, popular with architects, artists and designers of the period.
The iconic designs in this exhibition - including chairs, tables, light fixtures and graphics - are enlivened by archival images and documents, alongside interviews with the artist’s family and colleagues connected to the Melbourne art, jazz and design scenes of the period. Clement Meadmore: The art of mid-century design showcases Meadmore’s rich design practice and shines a light on the important cultural shifts that shaped mid-century Melbourne.
