WHAT IS WORKSHOPPED?
WORKSHOPPED is involved in the exhibition, manufacture, management, distribution and retail of Australian product design. WORSHOPPED aims to find 'solutions' to the problems faced by local designers moving from prototype to production.
WORKSHOPPED Pty Ltd evolved out WORKSHOPPED 01, a small but widely acclaimed exhibition of 5 emerging Australian designers in 2001. WORKSHOPPED 02 , 03, 04, 05, 06 and 07 followed and provided the platform for the WORKSHOPPED vision:
"To nurture Australian design excellence and facilitate successful commercial relationships between designers, industry and the market, both locally and internationally."
WORKSHOPPED identifies great Australian design and brings it to local and international attention. The WORKSHOPPED exhibitions are the first step in the process.
WORKSHOPPED aims to:
1 promote Australian product designers,
2 acts as an agent for Australian product designers both locally and internationally,
3 facilitate the production, locally and internationally, of Australian design product, &
4 retail Australian product design.
WORKSHOPPED facilitates commercial relationships between design creators, producers and buyers.
What is different about WORKSHOPPED?
In addition to the standard of design, there is an energy, a sense of fun, a collective interest and momentum in developing an Australian design community that demands attention both locally and internationally.
The WORKSHOPPED exhibition is the largest single event of Sydney Design Week and an eagerly anticipated event on the national design calendar.
