PERTH DESIGN WEEK – 14 to 21 March 2024
UniFor features its renewed relationship with OMA, and relaunches PRINCIPLES.

This March, Perth Design Week and Cathedral Square will host PRINCIPLES, an installation designed by OMA and UniFor.
PRINCIPLES at Cathedral Square will serve as a central hub for Perth Design Week 2024 and marks the first showcase of the collection in Australia.

The fundamental concept of PRINCIPLES is to provide furnishings that can be used by anyone, at any time, to best support the flow of operations and communications required by the contemporary workplace. The whole collection, composed by more than one hundred elements in various size, from S to XL, can be configured in limitless ways for working in groups or independently.

In PRINCIPLES, the Cathedral Square area of more than 600sqm is specifically organised to give the visitor an overview of PRINCIPLES multi-functionalities.
