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, and opens at Australian Design Centre (ADC) on 14 June.

38 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?

The annual WORKSHOPPED exhibition has presented the work of over 450 Australian designers through 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 to be announced. Follow the links below for more detail on our exhibition activities, including artist tours, industry events and opening night.
