The Australian Furniture Design Award (AFDA) is one of Australia’s most significant furniture design awards, recognising excellence in Australian furniture design and its contribution to design discourse and Australian culture. In response to the Melbourne Design Week theme ‘How can design shape life?’ the 2020 ADFA asks designers and makers to consider the broader implications and opportunities of furniture design.
From the many entries received five finalists will present their realised designs for exhibition and judging in the Stylecraft Melbourne showroom during Melbourne Design Week.
The 2020 AFDA winner will be announced on March 20th after the jury review all submissions.
