So who are we? …
What: exploring slow solutions in design
Born in a small, character filled cafe in Sydney’s inner suburbs, ‘a bit slow’ is a merging of five young Sydney designers who aim to explore slow design within the Australian context.
Drawing inspiration from the global and local design communities, ‘a bit slow’ challenges our acceptance of this fast paced world we all live in. Taking cues from the forefathers of slow design – slow food’s Carlo Petrini – we wish to explore the craft of design and reconnect other enthusiasts in Australia with what is possible when we are mindful, sustainable and go slowly.
