NEST – an independent designer platform curated by Anne-Maree Sargeant (2011-present)
Australia’s longest running design event designEX engaged curator Anne-Maree Sargeant in 2011 to create a platform to showcase the work of independent Australian furniture and lighting designers in a commercial context.
NEST assembles invited designers to exhibit new furniture, lighting and homeware in a a standalone exhibit at the annual designEX event for architecture and interior design professionals.
Participating designers claim that NEST to be a pivotal initiative that directly expands brand awareness, raises designer profiles and forges industry relationships.
designEX 2014 launched last November with the installation ‘NEST Works in Progress’ curated for the event by Anne-Maree Sargeant – watch video of the event HERE.
NEST14 returns for it’s third appearance at designEX – May 28-31, 2014.
“As the curator of NEST AMS demonstrates an innate ability to unearth the design stars of tomorrow!
Working closely with designers to support their business and marketing practise, AMS makes an invaluable contribution to the Australian design industry, and we look forward to seeing NEST14“
