Warp & Weft Cube Features in Dulux 2017 Colour Forecast

The Warp & Weft Cube was lucky to be featured alongside some of Australia's leading designers and artists in the Dulux Colour Forecast for 2017.

"Two-dimensional colour connects and entwines.
Materials are bent and shaped to weave together and create solid forms."

The Warp & Weft Cube was featured within the theme of ENTWINE which explores the idea that colours will interact with overlaps, and a blend of modern and traditional elements will be a bit theme in 2017.

AFIA/ACE award winner - WoodSolutions Group Timber Medallion

At Furnitex Brisbane, the Warp & Weft stool was awarded the Timber Medallion. The Timber Medallion is awarded to furniture products that use timber in an innovative and original way, which the Warp & Weft stool does in spades. I'm honoured to receive the award, and hopefully it is a sign of things to come. Next stope Workshopped Sydney, then Paris Design Week in September.

Nice for Nice @ Denfair 2016 - Bespoke

Bryan Micallef created a Warp & Weft Box to display at Denfair 2016 as part of the Bespoke stand. Bespoke was made up of 5 incredibly talented local makers who each displayed their interpretation of the humble box.

The Warp & Weft Box was created using both bent lamination and steam bent techniques to create a cube that appears more like something made of fabric than solid timber.
