45th Anniversary Program
In 2021 we celebrate our founder’s mission to inspire the community to embrace design, by telling stories that reflect the changing paradigms of design now and into the future.
The centre of design for our island.
Design Tasmania is a not-for-profit design centre dedicated since 1976 to furthering design in Tasmania through our exhibitions, collection and store.
Our programs, activities and advocacy are designed to embrace diversity, encourage inclusivity and champion professionalism, bringing design to as many as possible.
Design Tasmania Wood Collection
The Design Tasmania Wood Collection is an evolving collection of contemporary Tasmanian wood design. It is the only museum collection of its type in Australia. The collection was established in 1991, with the aim to champion and showcase Tasmanian wood designers and makers, and to highlight Tasmania’s unique position in the global design industry.
There are 80 pieces in the Collection, and work is acquired biennially (every two years) with the support of Design Tasmania’s Fellows donor program.
Information about the works currently on display in the gallery is available in the Design Tasmania Wood Collection Guide
