Object statement
Poster, 'Marking Territory + Industry', exhibition poster, offset print on paper, designed by Cromwell Design, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, 1996
MAP (Merchants of Australian Products) was established in Melbourne in 1989. Run by internationally acclaimed designers Christopher Connell (b.1955) and Raoul Hogg (b.1955), the company employs a holistic approach to design that includes research and development, selection of materials, manufacture and marketing of an extensive range of furniture. MAP furniture and objects are noted for designs that combine wit and humour with function and style. Their designs have featured in numerous exhibitions, including 'Mutant Materials in Contemporary Design' in 1995 at New York's Museum of Modern Art.

MAP has collaborated with the Powerhouse Museum on a number of projects aimed at introducing students of design and technology to the work of both professional and student designers. The poster adds context to the MAP objects represented in the Museum┬?s collection of contemporary design and Australian furniture.

In a period of increased outsourcing of local designs to overseas manufacturers, this poster featuring the ┬?Light Chair┬? (┬?Pepe Chair┬?) designed and made by MAP, represents a successful design partnership that continues to design and locally manufacture furniture and objects that combine innovation, enduring style and functionality with a quirky sense of fun.
MAP (Merchants of Australian Products) was established in Melbourne in 1989. Run by designers Christopher Connell and Raoul Hogg, the company not only continues to design but also manufactures and markets an extensive range of furniture. Interior design is another aspect of its operation. MAP furniture is sold through outlets in most capital cities as well as in Wellington, New Zealand and has featured in numerous exhibitions, including New York┬?s Museum of Modern Art 'Mutant Materials in Contemporary Design'. The 'Pepe' chair is one of two MAP designs shown in that exhibition.
The 'Pepe Chair' featured on this poster was on display in the Design Gallery in 1997 as part of The Powerhouse Museum's inaugural Sydney Design Week in association with the MAP: Merchants of Australian product exhibition.
