In April 2022 we partnered with esteemed gallery KolbuszSpace in Perth to present a collaborative exhibition celebrating Australian art and design. New furniture releases by Adam Goodrum and Tom Fereday for Australian design brand nau were on show, complimented by exclusive stockroom artworks curated by KolbuszSpace.
Here we share an event gallery from the exhibition launch, which was attended by over 120 designers, architects and creatives from Perth's design community.
From voluminous sofas and armchairs, to award-winning lighting, guests enjoyed an immersive design experience that presented nau designs in a curated and fresh way in an industrial gallery environment, alongside significant artwork by leading artists.

Guests enjoyed a beautiful grazing table by Grazing The Roof, along with wine from local Margaret River producer Vasse Felix.
Located in the former industrial Claisebrook precinct on the inner-city fringe area of Perth, this Australian Design & Art exhibition at KolbuszSpace marked the largest nau collection showcase in Perth to date.
On show for a week-long period, visitors were able to explore the nau collection up close in a fresh, curated environment, alongside significant artwork by leading Australian artists.
The exhibition launch was attended by over 120 designers, architects and creatives from Perth's design community.
