About WORKSHOPPED and Australian Design Centre
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 only five designers exhibiting, this small but dedicated team grew WORKSHOPPED into large scale annual events held in various locations in Sydney.
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 is thrilled to present this anniversary edition of WORKSHOPPED. ADC has a long relationship with WORKSHOPPED, including the ADC on Tour exhibition, Resolved: Journeys in Australian Design (2014 – 2017). This exhibition allowed audiences to experience the process of design through the stories of 12 designers.
Over the past 20 years WORKSHOPPED has exhibited the work of more than 500 designers to reach over 600,000 people. Much of the value of exhibiting with WORKSHOPPED is connecting to this large network.
