Design is an often elusive process that calls for creative collaboration with mates, mentors, makers, marketers – a complex network of skilled and passionate individuals. In Good Company will introduce audiences to the people that make it happen and offer the chance to sit side-by-side with the creators in their studio, workshop, or dinner table.

Curated by Sydney-based design studio &Company, this exhibition will bring together over 20 emerging and established designers, manufacturers, makers and retailers including Cloth, Design By Them, Dinosaur Designs, Gary Galego, Koskela, Mud Australia, Naomi Taplin &company, Oliver Smith, Trent Jansen, Vert Design, Malcolm Greenwood, Rapid Prototype Services, Somchai Charoen, Edols & Elliott, Top 3 By Design, Gaffa, Metalab, Anibou and more.

In Good Company will explore what ‘local, sustainable, and intelligent’ design really means, reveal the hands that help shape it and expose how objects arrive in a shop window, ready to be bought, carried home and loved.

The exhibition will be accompanied by a series of workshops:
