The first edition of Design Show (formerly DENFAIR) is coming up from 20-22 October 2022 at the ICC Sydney. We are looking forward to unveiling the new Lincoln sofa by Adam Goodrum and other nau novelties across two locations: nau 2022 (stand #860) and the Lincoln Gin Lounge by Cult and Four Pillars. Here we share an overview of nau's activities at Design Show 2022 - we hope to see you there!

nau 2022  (#860)

Launched five years ago, nau is a contemporary design brand celebrated for championing a uniquely Australian creative vision, with a versatile collection that spans both residential and commercial applications.

Styled amongst an understated backdrop of layered sheer curtains from Kvadrat Maharam in yellow, beige and pink tones, the nau 2022 collection is presented in a series of soft residential settings to highlight its sophisticated design and versatility.

Here we unveil Lincoln, a new modular sofa system designed by Adam Goodrum that is inspired by the Lincoln Continental vehicles of the 1970’s. Other nau novelties on show include the Furl coat stand and Nest Monochrome tables by Adam Goodrum, alongside collection bestsellers.

All fabric and leather upholstery on the Lincoln sofa has been generously provided by Kvadrat Maharam.

Lincoln Gin Lounge by Cult x Four Pillars (central zone)

Presented by Cult in partnership with nau, Four Pillars Gin and Kvadrat Maharam, the Lincoln Gin Lounge is a place for meeting, socialising and conversation during Design Show 2022.

Envisioned as an ‘anti-VIP’ space to bring the industry together, Design Show attendees are welcome to visit the Lincoln Gin Lounge between 12pm - close each day, and discuss Australia’s creative future over a complimentary selection of Four Pillars’ latest gin drinks. 

Pairing considered Australian design with quality Australian gin, the lounge is the launch pad for Lincoln - a new modular sofa system designed by Adam Goodrum for nau. This public lounge showcases the flexibility of Lincoln’s linear design and its possibility for large-format commercial applications, from hotel lobbies to airport lounges, hospitality venues, workplace and more.

The Lincoln Gin Lounge is a continuation of Cult’s ongoing relationship with Four Pillars. We worked together in 2019 on custom nau furniture for the award-winning Four Pillars Gin Lab in Sydney designed by YSG. At Design Show 2022, we want to host the whole of the industry in a central space, to bring the community together.” — Richard Munao, Cult Founder and Director.

Artichoke Magazine stand by Freehand Studio (#623)

Artichoke Magazine’s activation encourages meetings and interactions while evoking a sense of calm that is often found in the comfort of one’s home. Lisa Munao of Sydney-based firm Freehand Studio looked to the connection of the home dining space combined with the warmth of the nau 2022 collection to design a space that welcomes visitors while concurrently getting to know Artichoke Magazine and the team at Arch Media.

Design Show Australia is the nation’s largest and most significant exhibition for interiors, architecture and fit-out solutions – showcasing the world’s leading brands, manufacturers, superstar designers and future design trends for creators and makers of amazing commercial and residential spaces. Alongside the exhibition, the event features a series of talks, interviews and masterclasses with international designers. The fair is open to trade visitors only on the first two days with the public admitted on the third day.
