Does the chair, table, lamp do what you’d hoped it would?  Is it comfortable, functional, do you smile when you look at it?
The WORKSHOPPED 17 design exhibition asks designers "Does your design demand attention and is fit for purpose?".
The annual WORKSHOPPED exhibition has presented the work of over 450 Australian designers through 16 exhibitions and been viewed by over 650,000 people.

This year, in recognition of the demand for places in the exhibition, WORKSHOPPED will curate a student exhibition, and a separate exhibition for professional, established designers called WORKSHOPPED Salon.
WORKSHOPPED plays a key role in the support and promotion of Australian product design. Partnered by Supa Centa Moore Park in association with Australian Design Centre
