New Australian Design

15 September 2022 – 30 April 2023 Powerhouse Ultimo Free Entry

New work by some of Australia’s finest designers and makers, curated by cross-disciplinary designer/creative director Emma Elizabeth of Local Design.

Elizabeth’s Local Milan initiative (2016 – 2019) saw her coordinate the conceptualisation, production and exhibition of more than 40 Australian designers at the Milan Furniture Fair. For SDW2022 Emma once again brings together designers from across Australia in New Australian Design.

Twenty established and emerging designers working across disciplines including industrial, limited-edition, graphic, sound and spatial design have been invited by Emma Elizabeth to create new work responding to the theme ‘Making Now’ – marking this moment in time and indicating the way forward in design.

New works by Andrew Simpson, Tom Fereday, Amanda Talbot, Elliat Rich, Luke Storrier, Adam Goodrum, Leon Curtis, DesignByThem, Kenny Yong-Soo-Son, Patryk Koca, bernabeifreeman, Tom Skeehan, Henry Wilson, Sarah Ellison, Marlo Lyda, Alex Fitzpatrick, Ivana Taylor, Tarryn Gill, David Tate, Edward Waring, Olive Gill-Hille and more.

This exhibition launched during Sydney Design Week 2022
