Australian Furniture Design Award 2024

Cultural & Civic, Small Scale

Australian Furniture Design Award 2024



The Australian Furniture Design Award is a significant Australian furniture design accolade, developed to recognise excellence in Australian furniture and lighting design and its contribution to design discourse and Australian culture.

The Award celebrates the most interesting furniture and lighting design being created in Australia today, with a particular emphasis on new design ideas, critical and creative thinking, sustainability, material development and research that explores innovative production processes.

Now in its fifth iteration, the NGV and Stylecraft present the Australian Furniture Design Award as a two-stage competition with the first stage being an open call for a new and original furniture or lighting design concept and information on the entrant’s professional practice.
