Comedian and author Tim Ross recently hosted his signature Mid Century Project series at an iconic Harry Seidler-designed house in Sydney.
Located in Sydney’s beachside suburb, Dover Heights, the house recently saw about 500 design professionals attend Tim Ross’ latest series of Mid Century Project live shows. These sell-out live shows are typically held at architecturally significant buildings where Tim continues to delight audiences with his unique blend of storytelling, music and design.
Best known as one half of award-winning Australian radio duo Merrick & Rosso, Tim has morphed from comedian and radio and television personality to writer, television producer and social commentator who is passionate about design and architecture.
World-renowned architect and modernist Harry Seidler is a particular favourite – an architect who is firmly entrenched in Australian design history as a leading light on modernist design methodology, with a career spanning 60 years and over 180 buildings. The Kalowski House in Dover Heights, Australia Square, Grosvenor Place, Blues Point Tower, Ian Thorpe Aquatic Centre and Horizon Apartments are part of his design legacy.
Smeg Australia played a supporting role at the event, supplying their iconic Candy Stripe, Denim and Australian flag FAB fridges. The inimitable vintage personality of FAB by Smeg fridges was in perfect harmony with the show’s Mid Century design and architecture theme.
