Epic Design Events in Review – Part 1

Denfair – 8-10 June 2017

 

After only 3 years Denfair has established itself as the leading destination for contemporary design in Australia. This we’ve created a go to guide for all the Denfair award winners so you can get up to speed with the who’s who of Australian design

This was Day 1. As you will see, people were pretty pumped to get inside and get their design on.

Recognising Australia’s established and emerging design talent, Denfair has curated a wow-factor, immersive experience for both exhibitors and visitors full of content and inspiration.

This year saw a collaborative approach to many stand designs, which in turn created extended exposure for loads of talent. It was great for social media too! It’s always very cool to see who is hanging out with who and sharing design ideas.

This year Denfair awarded the following businesses for their contributions to design. Below are links to both the websites and Instagram pages of the award winners so you can have as much fun as we did.
