This category will serve as a showcase of the brightest rising stars of Australian furniture and lighting design. The work submitted to this category will be judged on form and function; however, objects that demonstrate genuine innovation (be it in terms of materials, manufacturing, distribution or functionality etc) will be highly regarded. This category is specifically for students or recent graduates (less than three years since graduating). You can have already set up your own business though. Considerations include: brief (if applicable), functionality, aesthetic, concept, parameters, sustainability, innovation, material consideration and originality of design outcome.
