Disregard the realities of camping… the ‘Tent Lamp’ is here…

  Inspired by camping tents glowing at night, the ‘Tent Lamp’ brings the outdoors indoors in a playful, almost nostalgic way. This is for individuals who are less outdoorsy and more adventurous at heart. Disregard the realities of camping, as this familiar tent form and its warming glow, conjure only the most romantic memories of camping. Beautifully detailed and designed, the lamp looks great as a room sculpture during the day and as a table or shelf lamp during the night. Measuring 10cm height, 22cm length and 18cm width, the lamp has been made from a thin porcelain that picks up all the subtle shapes of a tent....

Bird House

Many of our birds and other animals rely on tree hollows to live and breed in, but trees with hollows are a dwindling resource. Hollows only form in very old trees, at least 100 years old, so with widespread clearing for farming, timber production or development, many old, hollow-bearing trees are simply not there any more. Unfortunately, most of the available man made birdhouses in Australia don’t meet the ideal needs of the birds. Their structures and designs are taken from a European model and few are modified to suit... Read The Rest →

The Big Green Chest of Drawers

This low profile piece has an extremely simple aesthetic. Clean lines accented by green planes and exposed plywood edges, which outline the chest of drawers. Boasting a restrained use of materials, in that Plywood & drawers runners are all that makes up the product. Share → Tweet

Morse Pendant Light

Equal parts industrially aesthetic and also visually warm, through its blend of cold ‘black steel’ and the warm timber spindle (American Oak). The ‘Morse’ pendant light would suit a range of interior contexts both commercial and residential. The idea that drove the shape and assembly of the two components that make up the ‘Morse’ pendant light, were inspired directly by the conical form of a ‘Morse Taper’ (aka machine taper). Morse taper systems are used in almost all machine tool spindles, acting as the primary method of attachment for tooling.... Read The Rest →

The Back Of Cafe’s Aren’t The Only Place Milk Crates Are Being Stolen.

I’ve read a few articles on the theft of intellectual property and one of the most recent was ‘Is it time to redesign the law around ‘replica’ furniture?’, in which lighting designer David Trubridge expresses his frustrations of the theft of his designs by saying ‘…I don’t think a respectable company should do something like that’.  I didn’t ever expect it to happen to me. I feel like it’s a clichéd mentality, but when it does happen, it sure does rock what I believed were the ideals of the design... Read The Rest →

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 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 →
