Fringe Furniture 32

Established as an experimental playground, Fringe Furniture is a standout exhibition of emerging market-ready design and has provided a platform for artists and designers to exhibit their work for 32 years, making it one of the longest design events in Australia.

Fringe Furniture is an open-access event, meaning that anyone can register to exhibit work. This open-access policy results in established and emerging designers coming together, with a combination of experimental and functional works and the presentation of fresh ideas alongside refined forms. The breadth of talent and skill that Fringe Furniture attracts can genuinely be considered a barometer for the city’s vibrant and cutting-edge design community.

Registrations for Fringe Furniture 32 will open on Monday 4 June 2018. To be alerted when registrations open, please sign up for our newsletter.
