FURNITURE

20 Years on: Zuster

We are naturally drawn to celebrating new designers, and rightly so; new energy and creative talent is inspiring and exciting. It is also significant to celebrate designers' milestones and longevity, to recognise those who continue to create year after year and at the same level of quality they began.

Celebrating Design from our region and beyond

Australia has a pool of talented designers on our doorstep, plus a well-established connection to the Region surrounding us. Celebrating the links we have, we look at both sole practitioners and distributors that make up our global design community.
