Sydney Contract Launch Party

A week later, Sydney did not disappoint by coming out in force to discover our products, showroom location and how to sit in the Stingray chair!  We also had the unique opportunity to reveal the Wikkelso range – a product that has not been seen in the world for 40 years! The Sydneysiders in the A&D community were the first to see and sit in these beautiful pieces.  Even the photos show how comfortable the chair and sofa are! 

After many months (& years) of hard work behind the scene it was an adrenaline rush to see the showroom packed with architects and designers testing out our beautiful products and catching up with each other.  There was certainly a buzz and the many thank you notes that followed tickled us pink, thank you! 

The night was designed to not only have fun but to educate the A&D community on the new possibilities with Great Dane’s contemporary and classic furniture range, specifically designed for architects, interior designers and specifiers.

We are now offer a service that ensures industry professionals have access to the complete collections from Scandinavia’s most renowned lighting and furniture design houses, over and above than what can be viewed in the Great Dane stores.

If you are seeking to fit-out medium to large-scale projects or wanting unique stand out pieces, we can now assist the design firm looking for a broader product range than is habitually offered in our retail showroom and online collection. 

Over the past eight years, our founder, Anton Assaad, has developed strategic relationships with Scandinavia’s most established design brands, which allows us to bring their unique offering to the Australian marketplace – most which has never hit our shores before.

“It has been a great pleasure to watch the Scandinavian design trend continue in its strength in Australia to become a classic and at the same time, contemporary. To know that the products are appreciated by so many, we have responded by providing access to full product ranges.

Australia’s design industry is a continuous evolution and for Great Dane to be a part of that is very exciting. What Great Dane has to offer is unique in Australia because we are exclusive suppliers for many of our brands,” Anton said.

A selection of Scandinavia’s most renowned design brands including Fredericia, One Collection (Finn Juhl), &Tradition (Verner Panton), Erik Buch for Preben Schou, Arne Jacobsen, Moller  and more are now available through Great Dane Contract.
