Design Fringe

Design The Future: Don’t Waste Time

17 September > 27 November 2022
Linden New Art > Tuesday to Sunday, 11AM to 4PM
Carlisle Street Art Space > Monday to Friday, 8:30AM to 5PM





Welcome to Design Fringe 2022 – a place for the ambitious, the innovative, the shape-shifting and the magic-making. Design Fringe holds a (very artistically designed) mirror up to the who’s who and what’s what of the design industry and celebrates innovation across design of all kinds.

Continuing the legacy of its first iteration as Fringe Furniture, Design Fringe honours the legacy of the last 35 years of the program while continually reimagining the future of design. This exhibition celebrates the changing face of design and the work of ambitious new design leaders.
