​The group was established in Tasmania in 1995 by a group of furniture designers and designer-makers, mostly graduates from the Furniture Design program at the University of Tasmania, and was formerly known as the furniture designers association. Over the last 20 years the group has evolved and now includes members working in a range of practices including jewellery, ceramics, printmaking, textiles as well as furniture and wood. In 2015 the name was changed to better reflect the membership.
designedmade inc provides a network and information service to its members and supports marketing of products and design services, through co-operative ventures such as designed; made showcasing, exhibitions and other projects.
