This year DENFAIR is launching a new initiative titled Front/Centre. Proudly supported by Schiavello, five representing entities across Australia have been invited to present the best and latest craft and design in their region to collectively map a new frontier in Australian design while tapping into the commercial opportunities at the heart of DENFAIR. Participants of the new initiative include Craft ACT, Artisan – Centre for Queensland Craft & Design, JamFactory, Designed Objects Tasmania (DOT) and Workshopped in association with Australian Design Centre. Front/Centre will present these emerging designs at the Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre from 8-10 June.

Marketing & Design Director, Anton Schiavello said of the initiative;

“Authenticity, innovation and promoting the support and development of Australian product design has always been at the heart of Schiavello.  In the spirit of the company’s rich culture of supporting designers in Australia, Schiavello was excited to be apart of the Front/Centre story from the outset. “
