If you have even a passing interest in design, you need to see WORKSHOPPED 14 – the single largest event as part of Sydney Design 2014 – to be held at the Supa Centa Moore Park, Sydney 14 – 27 August.
August 11th, 2014
Now in its 14th year, the WORKSHOPPED exhibition is nationally recognised as one of the most important public platforms for both emerging and established product and furniture designers.
Since 2001 the company has presented the work of over 300 Australian designers through 13 exhibitions and viewed by over 500,000 people.
This year’s exhibition asked designers to share their thought processes in developing ideas, designs and products – from a clean slate!
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.”
The WORKSHOPPED exhibitions aim to do more than just show great design. The facilitates commercial relationships between designers, industry and the marketplace.

If the last months have proved anything it is that social interaction and connectivity are vital to our well being. Finding a place to meet or a space to interact is proving to be the vital chain in the link to a normal life and it also helps to unite us in the changing world of today.
