Brought together by Authentic Design Alliance (ADA) and Factory Design District, DESIGN-MADE. is a three-day celebration of design for Australia and is set to prove that design is not something just for a small niche of the elite, but is, in fact, something for everyone.

What is design? And how much do we know and care about the things we surround ourselves with? It’s time for us to change the way we look at purchasing new items and to move away from the disposable culture that we’ve become so accustomed to. In years gone by, well-designed items were passed down through generations because they were made to last. We need to take a step back to that, so we can, in fact, move forward to a more sustainable future.

This new event celebrates the Australian design scene and will be the first national showcase of designers, makers and brands that will be entirely open to both industry and design-interested public here in Australia, set to be held annually in Sydney. The event is 100 percent independently curated and produced, while being supported by key industry associations and arts-design organisations including the Australian Design Centre, Design Tasmania, Good Design Australia, Jam Factory and Australian Copyright Council.

DESIGN-MADE. will expand on the hard work already done by the ADA and Factory Design District to educate the broader Australian community about the importance of supporting original design.

The event aims to stimulate ‘design thinking’ by unmasking and demystifying the design process. DESIGN-MADE. is not a trade show. It is a tightly curated series of installations that will showcase a broad spectrum of contemporary design. By sparking informed and universal conversations about design in Australia, we can promote a better understanding of the true source of available products. This, in turn, aims to shift buyer behaviour to support authentic process and original design.

Visitors to DESIGN-MADE. will have the opportunity to engage with exhibitor installations, floor talks, meet the makers, book signing sessions and workshops, while enjoying curated dining experiences, yum cha, craft beer, organic wine and everybody’s favourite food trucks.

DESIGN-MADE. will be held over two locations:

  • SUNSTUDIOS: 42 Maddox Street, Alexandria NSW 2015
  • Fisher & Paykel Experience Centre: 90-96 Bourke Road, Alexandria NSW 2015
