Nick Johnston of Rogerseller

Through my work as an interior designer I’ve known about Rogerseller for some time, and their reputation for stocking beautiful and quality Italian kitchen and bathroom products. I recently found out that they also have an amazing in-house design team based in Melbourne led by Nick Johnston. Their in-house team has created a range of bathware products including the award-winning Eccentric range (winner of the 2017 Red Dot Design Award & Best in Category Good Design Award).

Marta Figueiredo of Figgoscope Curates

Fresh from her win at the 2018 Melbourne Fringe Furniture Awards where she picked up The Most Experimental Design Award for her iconic Totems, we had a quick chat with Marta Figueirdo about her works, materials and her design journey.

As well as being an architect, Marta produces a unique and delightful range of furniture and objects, bringing her love of quality materials, colour and rich textures together to great effect. Her personal range is designed and made in Melbourne and includes her (now award winning!) Totems, the functional, comfortable and beautiful Terramar armchair, playful Candy ottoman, sleek and versatile Eclipse ottoman/coffee table and many others. Her work is defined by her joyful use of colour, fine detail, and quality materials. 

When I design the pieces I’m very much informed by the materials. I just start to look at them and think about how to play with them.
