QUT Window Project

The Window Project is a partnership conceived by the QUT School of Design Interior Design discipline and artisan, to open upprovide opportunities for design students to work collaboratively on small scale retail and exhibition design projects. QUT Design students teamed up with artisan staff over a six week period to develop a concept aligned to artisan’s exhibition and retail program, with supervisory assistance provided by QUT lecturers. . The program fosters real world engagement and networking, and allows students to showcase their talents in the public realm as an introduction to professional practice.

The current Window Project showcases the award winning Wambamboo range by designer Kent Gration. Wambamboo encompasses stylish and functional bamboo furniture and everyday objects.The range highlights bamboo's versatility as a natural high-end material using bamboo poles, cross-laminated boards and veneers, whilst promoting the environmental benefits of this rapidly renewable resource.
