WORKSHOPPED 14 is expected to be the single biggest event at the upcoming Sydney Design 2014 to be held at the Supa Centa Moore Park in Sydney from 14 to 27 August.

Recognised nationwide as one of the most important public platforms for both emerging and established product and furniture designers, the WORKSHOPPED exhibition has, since 2001, presented the work of over 300 Australian designers through 13 exhibitions to over 500,000 people.

This year’s exhibition, WORKSHOPPED 14 – Clean Slate, will feature 54 designers and is expected to be viewed by over 60,000 visitors. Designers selected for WORKSHOPPED 14 were asked to develop ideas, designs and products from a ‘clean slate’.

WORKSHOPPED Director, Raymond Scott explains that design thinking is going to have a huge impact on Australia’s future prosperity as it is core to innovation. He adds that the WORKSHOPPED 14 exhibition offers a great opportunity for the wider public to look at the design development process from imagination, research and concept to prototype development.

Going beyond merely showcasing great design, WORKSHOPPED exhibitions facilitate commercial relationships between designers, industry and the marketplace.
