Auckland Design Week is set to take place March 2024 and tickets are now available. The new annual event will spotlight the vibrant design scene in Tāmaki Makaurau, offering a collaborative platform for the city’s creative thinkers, design practitioners, showrooms and retailers to converge and celebrate the essence of design, and how it informs the way we live.

Auckland Design Week provides a stage for designers spanning various disciplines – spatial, architectural, interiors, product, fashion and more – to showcase their work in a distinctive and engaging way.

“Despite being a city who loves design – and our tendency to punch above our weight on the global stage - the events that champion local and international design are few and far between,” says Jen Jones, ADW Director. “Auckland Design Week aims to change that. This event will be a window into our culture, to our work, and an open and inclusive invitation to come on in; and we could not have pulled it together without the help of our event partners.”

There will be three Design Districts as part of the first Auckland Design Week showcase. Grey Lynn, Parnell, and Mt Eden/Uptown will each have their own unique personality that reflects the local design community, enabling visitors to explore events a short walking distance from each other with an annual overarching curatorial theme. A central hub, the Design Depot at Ponsonby Central’s Sapphire Room will provide a space for brands and designers from outside the Districts to exhibit - with a biophilia inspired concept, the Depot will showcase sustainability brands and those with a connection to nature.

2024s ‘Bold & Brave’ theme urges a departure from the prevailing white-on-white aesthetic and encourages vibrant expression through daring choices in colour, shape and materiality. More than visual, Bold & Brave extends influence to environmental responsibility – calling for designers to challenge the status quo of how we design, and ensuring design-lead decisions prioritise recycled materials and restoration efforts - it’s an invitation to redefine spaces with flair whilst courageously addressing the environmental impact of design.

Auckland Design Week 2024 will run from Sunday 10 – Saturday 16 March, 2024. Tickets for the Auckland Design Week event are on sale now from
