CIRCULARITY: Design. Auction. Party.

CIRCULARITY, the 2018 DESIGN Canberra opening party and auction, will celebrate the best of Canberra design and launch the festival’s opening-weekend.

Everyone is invited! Enjoy music, food, local wines, cocktails and brews, and experimental lighting design (House of Vnholy - Dark Mofo), in the iconic Monaro Mall.

Limited edition and one-off pieces from Canberra’s leading designers will be displayed and available to purchase by online auction on the night.

The 2018 DESIGN Canberra opening party will celebrate the circularity of our city – so much more than the much-derided roundabouts, the circle represents continuity and strength. Pure and simple, the circle embodies infinite possibilities. In Canberra, design and life is interconnected to the past, present and future of our beautiful city. When we support designers to live, work and make here in the Canberra region, we create a vibrant and creative community for everyone to enjoy.

Bid online here or join us at the party on November 10 at the Monaro Mall, Canberra.

Tickets are available at

About Design Canberra

Design is in Canberra’s DNA and the annual DESIGN Canberra Festival is a celebration of all things design.

From the time of Walter and Marion Griffin’s visionary design a century ago, to iconic experimental modernist architecture of the 1950s and 60s, through to contemporary and sustainable design developments today, Canberra has been – and will always be – a living design laboratory.

From 5-25 November, DESIGN Canberra will experiment with new ideas and expand the most successful programs into new directions in the 2018 festival. Over 100 events, exhibitions, talks, tours, activations, markets, collaborations, artist studios and open homes will once again transform the nation’s capital into a new platform for the best in design. The festival, now in its 5th year, is for all interests and ages and most events are free.

Last year, the festival attracted a record 94,455 people.
