Australian Furniture, Lighting and Object Design
Exhibition: 14 June to 24 July 2019
What do we covet, keep and reference as contemporary examples of great design?
WORKSHOPPED19 showcases the very best in new Australian design by emerging and established designers. 37 designers have been selected this year with entrants answering the brief: Fit for Purpose. Does the chair, table or lamp do what you’d hoped it would? Is it comfortable, functional, do you smile when you look at it?
Visit this year’s designs on exhibition at Australian Design Centre as WORKSHOPPED continues its important role mentoring industrial designers and championing manufacturing of Australian furniture, lighting and objects.
