WORKSHOPPED20: 20th Anniversary Exhibition

Australian Design Centre presents the 20th anniversary exhibition of the design industry’s much anticipated annual program WORKSHOPPED20 – the very best in new Australian design by emerging and established designers. 

Launched in 2000, this exhibition was the very first awards program focusing on furniture, lighting and object design in Australia. Started by a group of friends, with just five designers exhibiting, this small but dedicated team grew WORKSHOPPED into large scale annual events held in various locations in Sydney.

WORKSHOPPED’s evolution as an exhibition was followed by the opening of a retail business in Surry Hills selling the work of selected designers. In the last ten years, as the exhibition has continued to be key in discovering new Australian talent, the business has grown. Later moving to a showroom in Rosebery it has a focus on specifying Australian and New Zealand design for residential and commercial markets.  

After two decades, WORKSHOPPED is still leading the way. A champion of the creativity and ingenuity of Australian furniture, lighting and object designers, producing products for global brands to critical acclaim.

Australian Design Centre has a long relationship with WORKSHOPPED, including the ADC on Tour exhibition, Resolved: Journeys in Australian Design (2014 – 2017) and is delighted to present this annual exhibition at the Centre for the for the third year.
