Utopia Online Auction

DESIGN Canberra is giving design-lovers the chance to own their own piece of contemporary design at this year’s DESIGN Canberra auction, featuring a new line up of emerging and leading Canberra designers.

The design auction party will celebrate the best of contemporary design and will launch the festival with an opening-weekend party. Limited-edition and one-off pieces by established and emerging Canberra designers, artists and makers will be on display and highlighted by an experimental lighting design installation by Matt Adey of Beizj Studio.

The 2019 DESIGN Canberra opening party will celebrate the Bauhaus anniversary which redefined what design could do for society and reflected the utopian ideas of its time. The 2019 edition is the third auction party presented by DESIGN Canberra.

Artists invited to participate in this year’s DESIGN Canberra auction include emerging and leading Canberra designers, artists, makers and Craft ACT members. Anna Gianakis, Daniel Leone, DesignByThem, Estelle Briedis, Endure Designs, Gilbert Riedelbauch, Girl Nomad Ceramics, Kenny Son, Kristina Neumann, Krystal Hurst, Mel Douglas, Phoebe Porter, René Linssen, Rolf Barfoed, Dan Lorrimer, Tom Skeehan and Wayne Simon.

Like what you see? Get your ticket now and see the works in person at Level 1 Monaro Mall (from 17 Oct – 6 Nov) Canberra Centre or online before the anticipated party event at The Fitters Workshop 8 Nov.
