WORKSHOPPED Director, Raymond Scott, said “It’s great seeing design prototypes arrive for the exhibition – from simple renderings and images to the 3D form. There’s a strong use of metal, wood and ceramics, which we think is a reflection of our ‘clean slate’ brief – simple, functional forms and an organic design aesthetic.

We’re really interested in the thinking behind design. Corporate Australia is already investigating the benefits of design resolution processes – it’s core to innovation. Our exhibition is a great opportunity for the wider public to look at the design development process – imagination, research and concept to prototype development.”
