Architecturally inspired, the Chapel series of coffee tables cleverly utilise transparency and geometry to create modern designs that evoke a subtle sense of nostalgia and opulence. The series takes inspiration from my travels to Italy and the magnificent stained glass windows of many baroque churches throughout the country. Made up of simple circular voids, the rose windows were used by architects as a visual mandala to bring symmetry and balance to the space.
Available in three sizes with a range of glass top options.

The Elemento series of solid glass mirrors follow on from the Scena range for Portego. Taking motifs and elements from their bigger brothers, the Elemento series are all handmade in Murano. Each piece is carved by hand and then silvered just as traditional methods in glass mirror making.
Wompoo Dining Chair
Febrik - Sprinkles.
A generous dining chair inspired by the form and colours of Australia’s tropical birds of paradise.
The Scena Mirrors are the first in a series of designs for Italian editor Portego. Inspired by the architecture of Andrea Palladio, the series references his use of perspective and unique point of view within his spaces. Produced in Murano from carved glass, both the front and the rear of mirror is cut and carved to produce an illusion of perspective within the piece.
A large ritualistic function of the Catholic church is that of confession and reflection. Using these rituals to alter ones habits or personas, these spaces are often viewed as a site of renewal or cleansing.
The Barocche series mixes the reference of architectural layouts from catholic churches in Lisbona, Pari, and Turino respectively, with the concept of masking ones identity. These almost alien faces emerge from the columns and domes of their physical environments, questioning ones own reflection within them.

Graphic Grain Console
Limited Edition of 8
Polished & Oxidized Brass
Linoleum Oil Stained Ash.
A console: simple in form, that utilises colour and pattern to accentuate the natural qualities of each material. Each brass panel and ash section reacts differently to the applied surface treatments , expressing its own unique composition.
Fold was developed as a study into single material production techniques, in this case using aluminium sheet. The design creates a durable outdoor seating design that expresses sculptural qualities, to break away from the tradition of heavily framed, timber clad outdoor scenarios. Through the placement of the faceted panels along with laser-cut designs, the Fold chair reveals varying depth and pattern arrangement when viewed from different angles.
Fold - AUD $1,990 + GST. 4mm aluminium sheet. Available in a range of colours on request.
