Eight of Melbourne’s Best Furniture Designs

This December Melbourne will feature as Partner City at Asia’s premier design event, Hong Kong Business of Design Week (BODW) – quite an honour considering Italy was Partner Country last year.

Melbourne has been repeatedly honoured with the title of ‘World’s Most Liveable City’ and underpinning this achievement is a culture of creativity and design.

Within the 100+ projects in the exhibition, here are the eight pieces of furniture included in the DesignInspire Pavilion that could provide the perfect addition to your interiors.

Mayu Floor Lamp by Coco Flip

The Mayu collection is an exploration of sculptural forms inspired by the beauty of Iceland’s otherworldly landscapes. Distinctive and delicate, each piece is handcrafted using traditional shade- making techniques.

Lehenga side table by Helen Kontouris Design

Designed by Helen Kontouris, the Lehenga side table takes its design cue from the traditional lehenga skirts worn by Indian women dancing the Garba, a highlight of the annual Navratri Hindu festival.

Fruit Tree Bowl by Porcelain Bear

The title Fruit Tree Bowl describes this bowl in multiple ways. The bowl is designed to allow air to circulate, preventing fruit from spoiling. Shaped like a tree with trunk and radiating branches, the bowl derives inspiration from trees depicted in architectural plans.

Typography by Studio Truly Truly for Rakumba

Inspired by the way characters form words, and how these words can be arranged to create language, seven lighting fixtures – or characters’ – make up the building blocks of the system. Each light can be positioned on the four sides of the rail axis and can be independently controlled.

Within the 100+ projects in the exhibition, here are the eight pieces of furniture included in the DesignInspire Pavilion that could provide the perfect addition to your interiors.

Gallery Chair by Chris Connell for Schiavello

The Gallery Chair was commissioned by the National Gallery of Victoria (NGV) to coincide with the 2018 NGV Triennial. The design references the columns and stained-glass ceiling of the NGV’s Great Hall – the chair’s back upholstery stitch detail and form reference the ceiling’s fractured forms, geometric angles and vibrant colours.

Seam by Adam Cornish for Tait

The Seam collection is conceived with a design process not dissimilar to the way in which a piece of fabric is tailored into a form fitting garment, a refined seam’ along the spine of the chair referring to a seam detail used in garment construction. Through a simple series of cuts, folds and joins, Seam is materialised with elegant and precise form.

Anton Series by Volker Haug Studio

The Anton series explores the structural weight of light through cast materials. Punctuated by the lamp, the internal lit face holds light and reflects its surrounds. Working with metals, stone, ceramic and glass, each design is assembled and finished by hand with a focus on finish and quality craftsmanship.

Harvest by Jardan

Bold, elemental and honest, the Harvest chair has a commanding presence. Embracing both traditional craftsmanship and modern manufacturing techniques, Harvest has a rich tactility. Finished with leather slings, Harvest is designed to age beautifully, gently shaping to the form of the body.
