ABOUT THE FORTYNINE STUDIO
The Fortynine is an object design studio with a focus on making and materiality. Their work has strong references to the natural Australian landscape and uses local materials. They make things for everyday use and aim to foster good local design as an alternative to mass produced, commercial products.
The Fortynine Studio's practice involves developing work for exhibition, production and sale. They develop their own work, take commissions, do custom projects, and collaborate with other designers. By experimenting with new ideas, materials and processes they push the boundaries of design and craft.
