Plyroom’s collection of clever, multipurpose furniture has been carefully designed to support flexible living. Constructed entirely from sustainably forested European ply, Plyroom furniture is deliberately honest and beautifully finished.

Plyroom melds the heritage of Italian design and manufacturing with local design insights, to create a high quality and authentic range of products that are perfectly suited to the Australian way of life.

Embedded in the collection is Plyroom’s sustainable ideology of hand finished, made to last craftsmanship, minimalist design and the belief that products should be passed on to future generations.

The Plyroom collection comprises innovative flexible furniture that is interchangeable in use and location. From a kid’s room, teenage retreat, dining room, living room, bedroom and work room Plyroom products are designed to evolve with changing family needs, without restriction to a single function.

“It’s a hark back to the collection’s Italian design and manufacturing heritage, of looking after the furniture that you have, of doing more with less, and having things of keepsake quality that you can pass on from one generation to the next,” explains Elise Heslop, Plyroom founder and managing director.

Melbourne based designer Adam Cornish’s latest product launch is a series of lights made by hand from natural and locally sourced stoneware. 

The Stoneware Lighting range was conceived on a visit to a local artist and is influenced by the Japanese philosophy of Wabi-Sabi, which believes there is great beauty in design that is honest and embraces the process in which it was created. 

We love the natural organic form and texture of these pieces. Make sure you call into Corporate Culture to view them for yourself, 680 Elizabeth Street Melbourne. Prices retail from RRP $560.00.  

Designed and made in Australia by Tait - Birdcabin - has been thoughtfully conceived to appeal to Lorikeets and small parrots as well as humans who appreciate beautifully crafted objects and are excited by the prospect of encouraging bird life back into urban gardens where opportunities for birds to hollow have diminished.

Material : Spotted Gum timber off-cuts salvaged and reused from the Tait factory floor and a single piece of steel that has been cleverly folded, form the sturdy Birdcabin structure. Like all Tait furniture and accessories, Birdcabin is built to last.

RRP: $170

We adore the work of Melbourne designer Adam Cornish (having featured his Monkey Grip pots in the past) so we’re excited to see his latest design for Italian design powerhouse Alessi.
Adam is among a small handful of Australian’s to join the Alessi’s design encyclopaedia with the launch of his Trinity bowl.
Representing Australia on the international design landscape, Trinity was launched earlier this month in Alessi’s ‘Fall/Winter 2013 Collection’. Trinity has been a few years in the making: from the initial sketches and drawings on paper, through to renderings and various revised prototypes which underwent vigorous product testing and manufacturing. The final outcome is a beautifully constructed centrepiece that is inspired by the spiral structure of the Nautilus mollusk sea shell.
Trinity is available in store or online Top 3 by Design or Workshopped

Congratulations to Cannyone of Australia’s prominent designers and builders of luxury homes, on their award for Renovation/Addition of the Year at the 2013 HIA CSR Victorian Housing and Kitchen & Bathroom Awards.

The award was in recognition for this stunning renovation on an elegant Federation Arts and Craft era home in Kew, Melbourne.

The front part of the home on ground level was sliced in half – the three front rooms were preserved in their original period style while the remaining back rooms were reconfigured and extended to create new space. A second storey was also added to accommodate four bedrooms, two bathrooms and another children’s retreat. 

State-of-the-art design features include everything from Control 4 automation for wireless appliance control across the house to an L-shaped swimming pool with three separate areas and a Schindler lift which operates to all three floors, however one of the greatest highlights is the underground component. 

The 560 square metre basement level required extensive excavation to incorporate a half-sized basketball court with six-metre high ceilings complete with outlook window from the underground rumpus room. The underground level also includes a guest retreat complete with bedroom, sitting area and bathroom, a cellar, gymnasium, a 5-car garage and a luxurious home cinema completely fitted out with a 130-inch screen and 11 leather recliners. 

The owners, a family of six with four children under 13, had a distinctive vision to create a home that would evolve with the family and be an entertainment haven for the children to bring their friends home. The end result is a premium triple storey design that incorporates the ultimate in quality aesthetics, materials and build for which Canny is nationally renowned.

New from Stephanie Ng are these wonderful Scoop pendant lights. The concept behind Scoop was to create a simplistic form with clean contours that wrap gently around the globe reminiscent of an ice cream cone.

The bright coloured ring pops suggesting different flavours that appeal to various individuals with option to alternate with bright coloured cords. The top of the light is turned hard wood and provides a tactile surface before curving into the metal spun cap that lives right on top of the globe to minimise glare from light shining directly at you. This allows the eye to wander above to appreciate the beauty in the natural element of the design of the wood grains and knots.
