As we near the Summer holidays, we are taking the opportunity to reflect on the achievements of our team and thank our clients and industry friends for your ongoing support.
The year began with a celebration in our new showroom in Adelaide with the local design community. The elevated fit-out features signature archway detailing together with the latest furniture and lighting collections from both our local and international brands.
2021 saw Stylecraft launch brand partnerships with three new brands; Artemide Design, Eikund and Haworth. The diverse collections by these strong brands has strengthened Stylecraft’s offering and enables our clients to select from an increasingly comprehensive product catalogue. To tie in with Eikund’s Norwegian origins, ‘hygge’ themed events for the industry in Melbourne and Sydney welcomed Eikund, with intimate dinners to celebrate the iconic Italian lighting brand, Artemide.
The fourth Australian Furniture Design Award (AFDA) in partnership with The National Gallery of Victoria was launched in October with the 2022 finalists announced below. We look forward to the AFDA exhibition in March 2022 for Melbourne Design Week, where will announce the winner and celebrate our work with previous winners. Our focus on Australian design and manufacturing continued throughout the year with new collections from Ross Gardam, James Howe, SKEEHAN and LEN.
Our commitment to ongoing sustainable practices continued with Stylecraft with the completion of our fourth year as a signatory to the United Nations Global Compact. We were proud to announce a fully certified Integrated Management System in place, including certification for ISO 9001:2015 (Quality), ISO 45001:2018 (Occupational Health & Safety) and ISO 14001:2015 (Environmental).
We look forward to seeing you in 2022.
