Established in 1997, Cult (formerly Corporate Culture) formed to provide not only exceptional designer furniture, but also a high level of customer service, a combination not yet experienced in the Australian marketplace.

In his endeavours since then, company founder and director Richard Munao has built one of the most comprehensive collections of brand partners in Australia and New Zealand. Cult has grown from its first location in Sydney to now include showrooms in Melbourne, Brisbane and Auckland as well as distributors in Canberra, Adelaide and Perth.

In addition to founding Cult, and supporting strong international partners like Republic of Fritz Hansen, Poltrona Frau, Magis, Cappellini, Emeco, Carl Hansen & Sons, Cassina and Lightyears, Richard is actively involved in discovering and mentoring emerging Australian and New Zealand design talent. As founder of Cult’s Design Journey Competition, which began in 2004, Richard gives designers throughout Australia and New Zealand the opportunity to have their designs prototyped and put into production.

To further foster and develop Australian design talent, Cult has been involved in a range of national awards programs. Since their inception, Cult has proudly supported the Idea Awards as sponsor of the ‘Designer of the Year’, and also supports ‘Australian House of the Year’ award through Houses magazine.

2014 marks Cult’s first year as major sponsor of Launch Pad through Indesign Magazine;  a respected and industrial design competition supporting Australia’s local design community.

Cult is proud to be involved in these awards programs, which recognise emerging talent and celebrate the success and accomplishments of established designers in our local design industry.



Design first.
