Green Design Show at Decor and Design

Australia’s premier interior design trade event, Decor + Design, celebrates its 20th anniversary in 2024 with the theme of Evolution and the launch of an important new Green Design Show, in partnership with the Green Building Council of Australia and Circular Design Thinking.

Helping to Shift the Design Paradigm
With a new 3-day format from Wednesday 17th – Friday 19th July, Decor + Design is expected to attract over 9,000 design trade visitors to the Melbourne Exhibition Centre, to see the latest collections from 200+ exhibitors across indoor and outdoor furniture, lighting, textiles, art and soft furnishings.

The new Green Design Show will be co-located, capturing the established audience but changing the conversation. All exhibitors in this part of the show need to meet a robust set of guidelines curated by Circular Design Thinking (CDT), the Official Sustainability Advisor of the event.

Confirmed exhibitors in the Green Design Show include certified B Corp and sustainable powerhouse Koskela, as well as Cultivated, the product stewardship of Cult Design. The Green Design Hub: Makers Movement will feature live demonstrations from makers including renowned Master Upholster John Halpin, shining a spotlight on the essential role artisans play in the circular economy.

VIVID Emerging Designer Awards: A Platform for Next Gen Designers
The event will also host the 21st edition of the VIVID Emerging Designer Awards, the leading award program for emerging and early career Australian designers. It has advanced the careers of many prolific Australian designers, including Nicole Monks, Edward Linacre, Adam Markowitz, Dale Hardiman, Dean Norton and more.
