What do we covet, keep and reference as contemporary examples of great design? This June and July at the Australian Design Centre, WORKSHOPPED19 will be showcasing the very best in new Australian design by emerging and established designers.

For WORKSHOPPED19, 37 designers have been selected to showcase their work in 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?

Since launching in 2001, the annual WORKSHOPPED exhibition has presented the work of over 450 Australian designers through its 18 exhibitions. ADC and Workshopped have joined together in 2018 to present the exhibition and awards at the ADC in Darlinghurst.

Awards will be presented for the WORKSHOPPED19 winning design, along with a people’s choice, mentorship and other awards. The exhibition is a wonderful platform for both emerging and established designers, whether working in product, furniture and lighting. Established in 1964, Australian Design Centre (ADC) is one of Australia’s most important and innovative arts organisations, that creates opportunities for people to engage with design, craft and creativity through dynamic and high quality touring exhibitions and workshops.

WORKSHOPPED19 runs from June 14 to July 24, 2019 at the Australian Design Centre, 101 -115 William Street, Darlinghurst
