ReJOYce, a free exhibition of 50 years of Irish Design to celebrate 50 years of the Institute of Designers in Ireland, will be live and open to all from 16th November.

Set behind the arched façade of 2 Central Plaza, Dame Street, the exhibition is perfectly positioned in the centre of Dublin to welcome all who pass between Temple Bar and Dame Street, and who want to learn more about the value and impact of Irish design.

ReJOYce will showcase the breadth of award-winning design across all aspects of commercial design, including product design, architecture, fashion, digital design, brand and visual communication.

Curated by leading Irish designers including Mary Doherty, Founder of Red Dog and design historian Mary-Ann Bolger, the exhibition charts some of the key pieces of design that have made an impact. From the humble Logitech computer mouse designed over years by Design Partners in Bray, through to stunning sculptural leather fashion by Una Burke, visitors will see that designers have been continually working with businesses to improve their products and services.

At the heart of this is the Institute of Designers in Ireland (IDI), established in 1972 to highlight the importance of design and to support Irish designers. From humble beginnings, the IDI now supports over 1,000 Irish designers and is working with government to bring citizen-centric design into public service, improving the lives of all.

ReJOYce has been made possible thanks to Design & Crafts Council Ireland (DCCI) as part of Design Week. With thanks to the generosity of Hines, the exhibition will be held at 2 Central Plaza, Dame Street, Dublin for 3 weeks until December 2nd. Don’t miss it!
