In our creative corner of the Melbournian seaside suburb – St Kilda, a bustling energy beams behind closed doors. The truth is, lockdown in our world is a chamber of opportunity, a time to drop out of sight and into the workshop.
Many hands are involved in the making of the pieces you see adorning our clients’ homes, commercial spaces and hospitality venues. When you choose to engage with our design studio, you are inadvertently supporting several small businesses. The practice of engaging local artisans and fabricators is the most important chain of events in our process.
Ora is a piece that mediates between light and darkness through transparent colour. It is an interactive luminaire that engages in experimentation and exploration of coloured illumination. Ora enables personalisation, for coloured light can have an emotional meaning and therefore can influence the atmosphere in a space. To control its outcome, three interactive spheres are fitted on the face of the Ora; each of these adjusts one colour spectrum: red, green, and blue.
Nine hand-blown glass spheres are suspended from tiered branches that radiate out from its centre. At once organic and completely functional, the trunk is made from individual brass tubes, and the hand-blown glass spheres congregate like a cloud of floret.
The Flash is a sculptural pendant that evokes, in a series of bold strokes, the electrifying power of a lightning bolt shooting down from the sky. Inert yet mobile, jagged yet sinuous, this statement piece moves uncannily between two and three dimensions, now a flat shape, now an angular projection. A minimal and striking piece charged with energy.
