Innovation, raw materials and refined function are the defining characteristics of industrial style. Bridging the gap between contemporary minimalism and retrospective resurrection, industrial style offers eclecticism and maturity to interiors.
We thought it worthwhile to pay heed to local designers still making and creating on Australian soil. With sustainability and artful reclamation as driving forces behind their designs, these designers have created stylish objects rich in honesty and story.
The Workshopped Realax Stool was created by industrial designer Tim Collins of Cloud Studio. Repurposing an axe handle to create sculptural stool leg designs reflects Tim’s desire to utilise existing materials and processes. An organic and honest piece.
