Ahead of the Melbourne Design Week starting on March 14, we met with Kate Stokes of Coco Flip Design Studio to hear about Honey, her new collaboration with Bendigo Pottery, timber craftsman Charles Standford and glass artist Amanda Dziedzic. Honey is a collection of lighting designs including table lamp, pendant and wall sconce which feature slip cast ceramic stoneware or turned American white oak paird with hand-blown glass.
We talked about the inspiration behind Honey, the collaborative process and some of the highlights of the experience. Enjoy!

Abby Seymour

We were stoked to have a chat with talented Melbourne jewellery designer Abby Seymour. We’ve been following her work for the last couple of years and we’re currently obsessing over her Australis collection which is inspired by the natural beauty of the Australian bush. Abby has seamlessly merged her signature geometry and fine detail with natural shapes and textures and the result is stunning. One of our favourite things about Abby Seymour is her commitment to environmental sustainability and ethical labour practice which we hope means we’ll continue to see her work for many years to come!

Story of Things

Creatives and friends Petrina Turner, Jess Reftel Evans and Martin Reftel came together a little over a year ago to build a platform for sharing Australian designers and make their works available to purchase directly, and The Story of Things was born.

After busy year getting everything ready they officially launched in September of this year. We caught up with them for a Q&A to learn more about how they came together and what The Story of Things is all about.

Nicci Green from Articolo lighting

We finally made it to the Articolo showroom in Richmond and unsurprisingly we were blown away (pun intended) to see Nicci Green’s gorgeous range of mouth-blown lighting, lamps, pendants and wall sconces in the flesh. The setting for her creative process is the beautiful and carefully considered space designed by David Goss of Studio Goss, and it's definitely worth having a look if you get the chance. Through Nicci’s unique bold style and mastery over her materials she balances playful individuality with restrained elegance in every piece. One thing I’ve always loved about Nicci Green’s range is that each piece has its own voice and often each piece is visually quite different from the next, but all her works are unified by Nicci’s timeless, great design and respect for her materials.

Marijne Vogel & Annabel Smart from Studio 11:11

Based around their three core values of simplicity, craftsmanship and functionality, Marijne Vogel and Annabel Smart founded Studio 11:11 and began creating beautiful, Australian-made, fine leather goods.

They discovered the joy of working with leather while employed as Interior Designers for Hecker Guthrie. Both shared an interest in fashion and accessories and so decided to combine their design knowledge and passion to create a bag that met their own needs.
