Workshopped 16 exhibition asks designers to explain how their design puts the human experience first.

And how the human experience has been considered or captured in the design

The annual WORKSHOPPED 16 is now in its 16th year and has presented the work of over 400 Australian designers

through 15 exhibitions and been viewed by over 600 ooo people.

The exhibition is a platform for both new and established product,furniture and lighting designers.

This year in recognition of the demand for places in the exhibition, WORKSHOPPED will curate a student exhibition

and a separate exhibition for professional established designers.


WORKSHOPPED plays a key role in the support and promotion of Australian product design

The exhibition was held at Supa Centre Moore Park and we were lucky enough to have designer Kristie Tiernan

from Reno Couture come to Urban Timber and we designed her amazing LOOP CHAIR

Pam and Jake attended the exhibition and we have an ongoing relationship with Kristie.
