AUTHENTIC DESIGN ALLIANCE (founded 2010)
relaunched at the GOOD DESIGN FESTIVAL,
during VIVID Sydney in May 2016.

As an education platform, we support and promote original design. With our industry partners – we aim for vastly improved Intellectual Property protection for furniture, lighting and object designers. Counterfeit designs and replica furniture create irreversible damage to the future of our creative industries. Is it time for Australia wake up and get real?

Testimonials

“I find the fact that you can buy a Tom Dixon Replica as easily as a big Mac in Australia so deeply embarrassing. The bigger issue for me as a creative is the viability of design and creative culture (here). I hope that our government protect creativity and innovation in Australia and fall in line with new laws in Europe and the UK.”
