Tough Dustpan & Broom

As a furniture maker I spend a lot of time making sawdust, and of course, consequently sweeping it and collecting it from the floor each day (sawdust to be later collected by a local farmer, for pigs, chickens and mulch). I have acquired many different dustpans over the years and eventually managed to break them with general use (on occasion clumsiness was a factor). Unable to find a better option, to address both durability and large capacity, I decided to develop my own, coming up with the ‘Tough’ dustpan: Our... Read The Rest →

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 →

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...

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 →

Shortlisted for Temple & Webster Emerging Designer Award

How would you describe your design philosophy and aesthetic? Simple but clever, is the ultimate goal, but it’s easier said then done… My design philosophy is to create objects that are attractive and engaging and as much as possible, I try not to follow trends. I am continually experimenting with different processes, materials and aesthetics, to be interested and interesting. Lastly, quality and credibility are very important, durability to function into antiquity and longevity to be environmentally friendly…… READ THE REST OF THE INTERVIEW HERE.
