Utopia: Design. Auction. Works.

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.

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.

“The DESIGN Canberra festival is a city-wide celebration that transforms the nation’s capital into a hub of design each year. Craft ACT is honoured to deliver the festival in collaboration with industry, associations and educational institutions who share our commitment to the design, arts and creative industries.” said Rachael Coghlan

“The biggest event of the DESIGN Canberra festival is the festival opening party and auction. It’s back again in 2019 with a fantastic line up of designers and event partners. Best of all, everyone is invited!” said Rachael Coghlan.
