Replicas, fakes, ripoffs. Call them what you will. Whatever way you look at it, they’re damaging to the design industry and people it supports. The Authentic Design Alliance is here to do something about it. We’re here to reward those who use genuine furniture in their fitouts and help our members to encourage their clients to choose the genuine article. So please, enjoy the website and if you believe in what we're doing, join the cause.

We recommend becoming aligned...
DCOSA would like to thank the Jam Factory, Creative Industries Innovation Centre and the Adelaide Review for their support last night. It was great to share our industry experiences in furniture and product design and we are looking forward to seeing everyone at Hung Out to Dry on Tuesday. To put forward a topic or speaker for our next event please email us!

In celebration of World Industrial Design Day on 29 June 2010, we invite industrial designers from South Australia to participate in ‘Hung out to dry’. This event intends to raise the overall awareness of industrial design through the understanding of our discipline.

To demonstrate how industrial designers can solve social and environmental issues, local industrial designers and industrial design firms have been invited to design coat hangers made from recycled material.

We are asking aspiring South Australian industrial designers to be part of this show. A small number of allocated positions have been made available for the right candidates; this creates a unique opportunity to be able to have your work displayed alongside well known designers.
