CULTIVATED Launch @ Melbourne Design Week

Each year in Australia, the equivalent of 800,000 three-seater sofas, 1.65 million dining tables or 3.4 million coffee tables, are thrown away.

At Cult, we believe in the quality and longevity of exceptional design. We believe that one of the best strategies for sustainable living is to make and buy things that last. We believe in creating a sustainable, circular economy for authentic furniture and lighting.

During Melbourne Design Week from March 26 - April 1, we present Cultivated – a new sustainability program for authentic designer furniture.

Through a self-guided exhibition and short film screening at Cult Design Melbourne, discover the role that Cultivated plays in the circular economy of design. 

To celebrate the launch, we're serving complimentary drinks from 1pm on Friday March 26, courtesy of our friends at Round Theory wines - consciously crafted wines that have a positive impact on our planet.


This event is registered COVIDSafe with the Victorian Government.


Cultivated exhibition.

Guided exhibition walk through from 2pm daily (excluding 27/03 and 3/04)

Making a difference to our collective future means looking at all areas of our lives, including the furniture and objects that we fill our homes with. From the decisions we make when selecting that perfect piece, to what we do with our end of life furniture, the Cultivated exhibition maps the life cycle of considered design pieces through ideation, raw material extraction, manufacture and beyond. From refurbished mid-century seating to restored 1950s lighting, discover how aged, worn or end-of-life pieces can function for many more lifetimes to come.

Sustainability Stories.

Continuous screening during exhibition opening hours  

Sustainability Stories
is a short film comprising a series of interviews with design industry professionals: from designers, architects and business owners, to editors, advocates and advisors. Through a compilation of Q&As with key figures from design industry innovators, the film uncovers a wide range of ‘sustainability stories’ from across Australia. Sharing anecdotes, case-studies and advice, Sustainability Stories is a glimpse into the vast arena of sustainability, offering insight into the overarching question: what can sustainability in the design industry look like?
