Melbourne’s DENFAIR Preview 2: CoCo Flip

With only one week to go until the start of Australia’s top furniture and design fair, DENFAIR, we preview some of the key designers to watch. This week we talk to CoCo Flip.

With only one week to go until the start of Australia’s top furniture and design fair, DENFAIR, we preview some of the key designers to watch. This week we talk to CoCo Flip.

Coco Flip is a Melbourne based furniture and lighting design studio established in 2010 and run by Kate Stokes and Haslett Grounds. The pair work closely with local craftspeople and manufacturers to create lasting products with depth of character.

Stokes says each collection is extensively inspired from travel. “New destinations and cultures help us see things from a fresh perspective and renew our enthusiasm for design,” said Stokes. “We also spend a large amount of time researching new materials and processes. It helps us form boundaries to influence interesting ideas afforded by material constraints,” she said.

The CoCo Flip design process begins with a mood or tone. Whether it’s a place, character or feeling, each object is imbued with personality. “Play is a crucial part of the process –we believe the best ideas come when you least expect,” said Stokes.

At DENFAIR 2019, CoCo Flip will launch “Honey” – a new collection of lighting designed and hand made in Melbourne by local artisans. The range has already attracted international attention and is currently featured on the global design website, Wallpaper*.

We asked Kate and Haslet about the inspiration for the Honey Collection.

“Honey takes cues from the humble honey dipper’s soft curves and the stepped geometric silhouette is a nod to a stylised Art Deco sensibility,” they said. “Honey is a sculptural statement piece that celebrates Melbourne’s local artisans and provides a subtle ambient light.”

Honey is hand made by some of Melbourne’s finest craftspeople –a collaboration with Bendigo Pottery, Charles Sandford and glass artist Amanda Dziedzic. Offered in slip cast ceramic stoneware, or hand turned American White Oak, a number of glazes and finishes are available. White or pink hand blown glass completes the pieces, and provides a soft, diffuse glow.

DENFAIR is offering 20% off the ticket price to the public day on Saturday June 22 to Marshall White readers.
