Australia's Next Top Designers

Championing the Next Generation of Design

Shining a spotlight on emerging designers, makers and creatives, Australia’s Next Top Designer’s Showcase curates an array of breakthrough products and concepts shaping the future of design. This is an opportunity for creatives from all across Australia to place their work in front of industry-leading adjudicators, who select the most outstanding works for a final shortlist.

Editors Choice Awards

Editors Choice Awards

The inaugural Editors Choice Awards celebrates a wide range of products on exhibit at Design Show Australia, from best lighting to furniture, materials to finishes, flooring to wall-coverings and everything in between. The judging panel consists of Australia’s most prominent design editors from leading publications including: Artichoke, Design Anthology, Australian Financial Review, Est Living, Green Magazine, and Belle.

Speaker Series

Education and inspiration are at the core of Design Show Australia with multiple theatres on the show floor discussing the key topics, trends, challenges and innovations through a series of interviews, case studies, panel discussions and CPD-accredited presentations across the three days.


Almost a year after the launch of Cult’s sustainably program, Cultivated returns to the spotlight with a dedicated installation at Interiors Australia + DENFAIR 2022. Through an exhibition of new projects and collaborations, Cultivated invites you to consider new possibilities for end-of-life furniture, whilst unveiling thought-provoking innovations in its waste stream strategies.

Made Down Here

Supporting Australian Designers & Makers

We love beautifully designed pieces that last a lifetime. That’s why we have a strong focus on local emerging and established designers who made a conscious decision to keep our skilled manufacturing and artistic craftsmanship alive.

Made Down Here was created to raise the flag on their behalf and celebrate the Australian makers. All locally manufactured products will be branded accordingly at the show to be easily recognised.
