Melbourne’s Kozminsky celebrates its 165th birthday with a killer collaboration with 7 of Australia’s most unique and sought after designers.
November 9th, 2016
When Simon and Isidore Kozminsky, Polish émigrés, arrived in Melbourne and placed their name on this beautiful business, they began what is now a world-renowned icon of Victoria.
Kozminsky has served politicians and poets, artists and actresses from all over the world. Originally specializing in gold coins and nuggets, antiquities, and all things exotic, Kozminsky has developed its own cabinet de curiosities and delights, offering the rare and the beautiful in sumptuous surroundings.
For their staggering 165th birthday, the Local Design collective – headed-up by creative omnivore Emma Elizabeth – have collaborated with Kozminsky’s Kirsten Albrecht and Andi Ross to produce a unique 1/1 product for the famous Aussie design house.
Seven products have been crafted by Seven of Australia’s most significant design talents, including: Tom Fereday, Emma Elizabeth, Alex Fitzpatrick, Dowel Jones (Dale Hardiman & Adam Lynch), Christopher Boots, Ross Gardam and Alexander Lotersztain.
The Local Design x Kozmonsky collaboration is an excellent example of how our industry can pay back the past by paying the future. After a successful launch this coming Friday, all products will be available to view and purchase online or directly from the 421 Bourke Street, Melbourne store from November 11th, until the end of the year.
The LOCAL DESIGN X KOZMINSKY collection includes:
A 1/1 Round Diamond Rug, by Emma Elizabeth
Greenaway Luminaries, by Alex Fitzpatrick
Oblique Rhombic Prism (ORP), by Christopher Boots
A 1/1 Polar Desk Lamp, by Ross Gardam
A 1/1 QTZ Chair, by Alexander Lotersztain for Derlot
