The Design Brief

Does your design demand attention and is it fit for purpose?

Does the chair, table, lamp, rug or tableware set do what you’d hoped it would? Is it comfortable, functional, do you smile when you look at it? Is it unique, sustainable, innovative or enduring – what is its point of difference?

Are you ready to take the next steps toward production or are you looking to test your market?

WORKSHOPPED18 submissions need to describe:

Design intent; why and how the design came about
Design innovation; what sets this design apart from others like it
Design description; materials, dimensions and construction
Production; outline the manufacturing/production processes, including production volume
Market; define the potential market
A Work/s is either one work or one series of works that is part of a set or family of works. Maximum of two Work/s are permitted per designer.

Categories and Awards

The exhibition will include the shortlisted designs across lighting, furniture and objects, along with a full program of events and a select number of awards for presentation.

Applicant categories include:

Emerging designers – under five years of practice
Established designers – over five years of practice
Entry is free but shortlisted applicants will contribute a $275 ($250 + GST) fee towards exhibition production.

Exhibitors may be required to freight their works to and from ADC, and be available for installation if required.
