Navi by Centre Showroom

Melbourne based Centre Plumbing has achieved the ultimate partnership – a place where designer looks meet practical experience. Tucked away in a surprising part of Melbourne’s Glen Iris, the bold new showroom is a feast for the senses with its glamorous interior design and curated selection of fittings. 
Flack Studio was chosen interior designer. With David as the interior architect, his trademark charisma, flair and inviting design is seen in spades in the new showroom.
Dynamic design duo Pop&Pac managed the brand work and delivered a visual package that perfectly balances the down to earth character of the business with the elegance and excitement of the new space.

Cone 11 Ceramics and Porcelume

We had a great day at the Mercator building at Abbotsford Convent, the home of Cone 11 Ceramics and Porcelume.
It was a lovely sunny day at the workshop, when we visited Ilona Topolcsanyi from Cone 11 finishing some tableware commissioned for a restaurant. We also met Colin Hopkins, the maker behind Porcelume, as he was working on a medium size shade using the art of hand‐throwing porcelain, a skill that he has mastered through the years.

We had a chat with both of them about their work and their passion for ceramics.
