    The EDITION Collection celebrates those artists, designers and creative visionaries who’ve never paid attention to what others think.Their designs need no words; they are their own statement, sensory experiences created by inspirational individuals continually pushing artistic and creative boundaries.

    Sydney Contemporary welcomes design talent from across the globe in an enticing 4-day program for a visual journey of galleries, installation art, performances and engaging panel discussions, workshops and dining. A highlight of the Australian cultural calendar, this art event is a platform that highlights the vibrancy and diversity of the city of Sydney. For its third iteration, EDITION by Living Edge brings forward the latest limited edition designs off the production floors of the world’s leading design studios. Blurring the barriers between art and furniture, EDITION explores boldness, artistic form and function in iconic and compelling ways.  

    EDITION is revolutionary – with every piece within the collection encapsulating a distinct individuality that inspires and challenges all creative boundaries. This year at Sydney Contemporary, EDITION provides an exclusive opportunity for the design community to experience contemporary and rebellious creations. The iconic Monkey Side Tablereturns with its loud and humorous persona that is an all-time favourite in Jamie Hayon’s impressive portfolio. Injecting functionality and whimsy into an innovative structure, this EDITION piece is joined by a myriad of well-loved designs such as Gufram’s Cactus; Established and Sons’Surface Table; BD Barcelona’s Leda Armchair; and Vitra’s Chrome and GlowPanton Chairs which made first appearances in previous years at Sydney Contemporary. 

    Among several newcomers to the EDITION collection this year, the QTZ Lounge and Ottoman in powder coat is a multidisciplanary masterpiece. The seat, inspired by the natural geometric forms of Quartz, embodies prismatic beauty and opulence.Through this QTZ limited edition range, designer Alexander Lotersztain expresses refined grandeur married with advanced technologies and craftsmanship. The powder coat edition has been realised from a collaboration between Alexander Lotersztain and artist Bridie Gillman. A collaboration which saw a new iteration of the iconic QTZ chair as a canvas for Bridie’s loose and abstract painting style. The design celebrates two contrasting approaches to creativity as art explores new mediums and technology is pushed further, placing the chair at the intersection of art and design.​

    Gufram’s Jolly Roger joins the 2019 collection. Much like the pirates’ flag, it is a homage to the piratical spirit with which Gufram subverted the rules of design. It is a seat that formally recalls the skull - The seat, designed by Fabio Novembre, is the first Gufram project in roto-moulded plastic.Inside the seat is a planisphere which recalls the maps used by Pacific buccaneers and symbolizes the brand's internationality. The globe is suspended in the frame; it is a map surrounded by the oceans, an insatiable desire for conquest, almost an exhortation not to stand still, a warning: you are sitting on the world, never forget it.

    Reborn for the 21stcentury, Vitra’s Panton Petrol is a reimagined 1960s treasure. The EDITION showcase redefines the iconic Panton chair into a contemporary experience. A design meticulously crafted by late great designer Verner Panton, the design creates artistic drama and extraordinary innovation, exclusive to the EDITION range by Living Edge. 

    This year, at Sydney Contemporary, Living Edge honours the combination of contemporary art and furniture and the illustrious, forward-thinking and masterful minds behind each piece.
