SP01 MILAN LAUNCH

For Milan Design week we officially launched the new SP01 outdoor collection in Europe housed within the Archiproducts Milano building, Via Tortona 31. The entire outdoor collection will be on show for the following 12 months.
Launching Milan Design Week 2017
The Mito lighting series was designed to celebrate the natural beauty and character of raw materials. Minimal in design, Mito juxtaposes precision manufacturing techniques with natural hand finished timbers and stones to create a truly sculptural light. THe piece was made in collaboration with Rakumba Lighting.
Melbourne Design Week
26 Original Fakes exhibition made for Friends + Associates curated by Dale Hardiman and Tom Skeehan for Melbourne Design Week. The Shell chair is a solid concrete cast chair made from the negative space of the iconic Jasper Morrison HAL chair. Using a replica HAL chair shell as a sacrificial buck the piece seeks to highlight what you are left with when purchasing replica design. Disregarding the manufacturer, the collaboration, and the design development, the replica piece leaves you with nothing but a shadow of the iconic form. The piece was handmade in Sydney from solid concrete and hand finished.

For a recent commission by Brickworks I attempted to reinterpret the glazed bricks as bold pieces of minimal furniture, each piece using the inherent properties of the bricks in combination with solid timber dowel sytem. The deep blue and pine pieces were made at three heights to explore the pieces as a range. Pieces were styled by Emma Elizabeth.
