Nominations in Category

FABLE collection - Didier

Product Design - Furniture Indoor & Outdoor

- Winner

Fable collection recalls the humble objects familiar to traditional children’s tales, and inspired by the idea that a woodsman has simply stepped outside and beautifully hand carved a collection of functional timber items. These hand traditions have been reinterpreted, and designed for modern day function. Machined and crafted from solid oak and with difficult manufacturing details disguised within a super, simplified aesthetic.

Swell Sun Lounge - chris knight designs

Product Design - Furniture Indoor & Outdoor


I had seen the need for a designer range of outdoor furniture that would be hardwearing enough to stand up to all elements of the Australian outdoors. Originally adopted and described as “Coastal rustic,” Chris Knight Designs “Swell Sun Lounge” offers a statement design of coastal style mixed with rustic timber features suitable for all Australian Outdoor lifestyles. Clever use of the recycled plastic and Australian hardwood materials guarantees an extended life of the furniture. The sleek design, durability and ingenuity of this Sun lounge rocking chair is the driving force and inspiration for my Outdoor Furniture range.
