NAU COLLECTION LAUNCH - Q&A WITH DESIGN ANTHOLOGY

To celebrate the arrival of the NAU 2017 Collection in showrooms, we hosted an intimate Q&A series in partnership with Design Anthology at Cult showrooms in Sydney and Brisbane. The talks were moderated by Design Anthology's editor Suzy Annetta, with NAU designers Adam Goodrum and Adam Cornish and NAU founder Richard Munao on the panel. 


Following the launch of our design brand NAU at ICFF in New York and DENFAIR in Melbourne earlier this year, the 2017 NAU collection has now arrived in Cult Showrooms across Australia and New Zealand. To celebrate, we hosted an intimate Q&A series in our Brisbane and Sydney showrooms with the NAU designers and founder, moderated by Design Anthology's Suzy Annetta. 

 

The discussion covered a wide range of topics, from the NAU story, design process and approach to local manufacturing - to wider issues like the rise of the Australian aesthetic and the potential for Australian design in the global marketplace. 

 

Here, we share some images from the Sydney event. For more information, view the NAU collection on the Cult website here, download the NAU 2017 Look Book here, visit www.naudesign.com.au and follow @nau_design.
