Australian Furniture, Lighting and Object Design

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.

Selected designers:

Alexander Ghent | Alisa Newey | Angus Easthope | Arthur Koutoulas | Benjamin Jay Shand & Nicolas Locane | Ben Styles | Bianca Papadopoulos | Cathy Cao & Nicholas Tay Meng-Kiat | Calum Hurley | David Beck | David Mennie | Dora Ferenczi | Elisa Bartels | Ella Williams | Forough Najarbehbahani | George Shvili | Helen Chen | Ian Bromley | Isabella Lowe | Jeanie Mulligan | Jordan Fleming | Jordan Leeflang | Kate Swinson | Kathleen Prentice | Kenan Wang | Michael Hoppe | Mitchell Mooney | OFFICE & the Culpra Milli Aboriginal Corporation | Rhys Cooper | Ruby Clarke | Sarah Tracton | Sari Tredinnick | Seaton McKeon | Xue Lun Yeong | Yiqing Pei
