Future Design

How can design help build a better world?

Future Design is a free, week-long event which brings together local and international creatives for a  series of exhibitions, installations, talks and workshops to highlight how design can be a driving force in building a better tomorrow.

Transitioning into a circular economy is one of the biggest challenges of our time; it requires asking the right questions, keeping an open mind and global collaboration across multiple industries. Our aim is to show the incredible scope and ingenuity of forward-thinking designers, studios and brands whose innovative approach is pushing towards a more sustainable future.

A series of exhibitions, installations, talks and workshops
highlighting contemporary sustainable design.
We believe creativity and design
can be the driving force of a better future
