Open State: Tait
Melbourne Design Week – Open State: Tait tour
Tait founders Gordon and Susan Tait take visitors on a journey through the life of a Tait product from the early design process and concept development through to assembly and distribution. Visitors will be treated to a rare behind-the-scenes tour of the Thornbury headquarters and factory where they will witness the prototyping process with a first-hand view into the long and often challenging process of manufacturing a Tait product. All elements that go into making Australia’s very best outdoor furniture will be incorporated into the tour including cutting, welding, linishing, drilling, wrapping, packing and of course, Rosie the Robot.
