In Good Company is a unique exhibition that will draw back the curtain to reveal what happens behind the scenes of Sydney’s creative community.
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: 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:
