This August we’re going to be putting the spotlight on design that’s uniquely MIA – ie. Made In Australia! We’re just under 7 weeks out from Sydney Indesign 2015 and we’re already seeing local designers and brands planting the seeds for a series of collaborative engagements that will make your Sydney Indesign experience truly memorable.

All-Australian favourites team up for The Project

Staple & Co x C+M Studio
Making their debut at Sydney Indesign is Staple & Co. Specialising in beautiful sofas and beds, Staple & Co have plenty of design stories to share. At Sydney Indesign they team up with fellow Sydney-siders C+M Studio to launch a brand new sofa. Collaborating with C+M Studio, Staple & Co will also stage The Project from an exciting pop-up space in Surry Hills.

Jardan x Hannah Tribe
Upping the ante on The Project in 2015 is Australian design brand Jardan with architect Hannah Tribe. They’re teaming up to give us an extra special surprise… we’re not allowed to say too much, but from what we’ve seen… it’s going to be hot!
