Commercial Furniture Fit Out – Arkibar Restaurant

Late in 2015, we completed a commission for the team at ‘Arkibar Cucina’. We developed and manufactured a range of unique furniture pieces for their new restaurant in South Melbourne. The range of products we designed and supplied included; full height bar stools, standard height stools, pendant lights, square and round Oak tabletops and a large round communal table. Working with the guys from ‘Arkibar’, we created a carefully considered collection of furniture to suite both the restaurant’s style and the day-to-day function of the space. If you’re ever in...

Huon Pine Cube

This is the final installment in a series of projects that all came from a single slab of Huon Pine (approx. 1000 length x 600 width x 70mm thick). The Huon slab was provided by the client, a client who had no real needs or wants for the timber and instead presented an opportunity to develop interesting and fun objects. This last piece is simply a cube of timber (specifically Huon Pine). The thoughts behind the creation of a cube, is purely to showcase the lovely/beautiful/decorative/rare material. Previously the slab... Read The Rest →

Huon Pine Side Table – Commission

I had the privilege recently of working with Huon Pine, if you don’t know about it, here are some amazing facts to give context to my pleasure: The Huon pine is Australia’s oldest living tree and is one of the oldest living organisms on earth. Individuals have been known to reach an age of 3,000 years. Fossil records from a tree found in the south-west of Tasmania were dated at 3,462 years. (Carder A., 1995). Only the bristle-cone pine of North America exceeds it in age. The Huon pine grows... Read The Rest →

Huon Pine Skateboard

Huon Pine – One of the oldest living organisms on the planet and a Skateboard Deck – associated mainly as young persons past time. Who knew these two elements would work so well together. It is such a beautiful object, that I’m sure the owner will, maybe, never ride, but instead keep it as an ornament to admire and cherish. The deck is made up of an outer skin of Huon Pine, with a Canadian Maple core, finished with a clear coat of hard wax oil. The board currently has... Read The Rest →

Problem: Since the advent of the Internet, the concept of community has less geographical limitation, as people can now gather virtually in an online community and share common interests regardless of physical location. Prior to the internet, virtual communities (like social or academic organizations) were far more limited by the constraints of available communication and transportation technologies (wikipedia).

Snake and Step Ladder

This stepladder, made with Mountain Ash, is a unique commission piece designed as a gift for a ‘sweetheart’. “I try to give my sweetheart a commissioned work for her birthday each year…in order to give some meaning to gifts.” The brief requested a snake reference, which I pondered for some time, considering things like the application of snake like textures, colour and even form. I adopted a more lateral solution, in that the structural shape of the library ladder spells out the word snake. “She is afraid of snakes and... Read The Rest →
