The 100% Design contemporary showcase opens tomorrow at Gallagher Estate and we can’t wait to see the range of products, furniture, decorative items and trends on exhibit at this year’s event. Once again we’re co-presenting the 100% Talent lineup of new and emerging designers which are making their mark on the local design and maker scene. This year’s exhibitors include textiles, furniture, objects, art, ceramics, media and interior design. Here are 5 designers we’re looking forward to.
