Sydney has a network of small, smart and truly independent studios influencing the design landscape. Big uncovers some of these studios and takes us inside. Quirky, cramped, elegant, but always inspiring, Sydney’s small studios are full of ideas and spirit.

Designer Stephen Goddard and photographer Keith Saunders have captured the studios and designers, together with the stories, choices and philosophies that drive them. Ideally exhibited in Object’s intimate Project Space, Big does not offer a glimpse of what these studios might become, it is a celebration of what they are – all that is romantic, cool and clever.

Big is all about the next small thing.
