The busy design weeks with Sydney Design, Workshopped13 and Sydney Indesign are all currently taking place throughout the city.
Our involvement can be seen with the furniture shown from Catapult at the Eveleigh Galleria.
Another furniture piece of note is the MAK which is on show at Workshopped13 at Moore Park Supa Centa in Sydney from 15th – 25th August.
MAK ambient light and clothes rackis the latest product from Australian designer, Robin Keussen. The combination of an elegant Tasmanian Oak clothes rack and ambient lighting is both a playful and practical design. In apartments, hotels, modern office spaces or as a signature piece in just about any space, MAK makes a statement while also offering a clever space-saving design.
“MAK is a play on products that are part of our interior heritage and combines what was once two products – the rack and the floor light – into one,” Robin explains. MAK’s minimal design, with clean lines and simple construction, gives it a modern style, which can easily be adapted through colour and material selection to suit a range of environments.
The thin, lightweight appearance results in less materials being used, while the raw beauty of the frame – made from plantation Tasmanian Oak and finished in natural oil – is allowed to shine. With a range of material and colour options, the lampshade uses natural materials such as wool, felt and silk – all fully recyclable.
Additionally, the flat-pack design allows users to assemble MAK themselves and requires minimal packaging, storage and shipping. The manufacturing process is also kept simple, reducing the amount of machining needed – in turn reducing energy consumption.
“It was important for practical reasons, like shipping and storage, to keep the design simple, but it also means that MAK can easily be put together and dismantled by the user, making it a really flexible design, but not compromising on style and fun.”
MAK is available as a light-rack with a lampshade, or as a traditional rack without the lampshade, and is available in four sizes: holding 4, 8, and 12 garments or ‘Unlimited’. MAK Unlimited uses a unique modular system allowing it to be extended to any length, not only displaying garments, but also creating a beautiful atmosphere within retail environments.
