Mercedes-Benz is synonymous with design and innovation; this is brought to life via our various partnerships within art and design.
Mercedes-Benz has been associated with the National Gallery of Victoria for 10 years and is excited to continue this year as the Principal Partner of the NGV Triennial. To celebrate Mercedes-Benz partnered with Brodie Neill who featured his Gyro, table 2016 within the NGV Triennial.
Tasmanian born, London based designer Brodie Neill's recent investigations have focused on ocean plastic pollution. Surrounded by ocean, Australia increasingly bears witness to this ubiquitous plastic pollution along its coastlines.
Gyro, table 2016 is Brodie Neill's innovative contemporary interpretation of a 19th century specimen table, substituting samples of marble, timber and ivory with fragments of blue and green plastic waste.
Mercedes-Benz Design Award is a celebration of design form and function, the award seeks to kickstart a designers career by giving them the opportunity to have their winning design produced by retail designer Cult Design.
