In recent years, local manufacturers and makers have played a large part in helping architects, designers and the public customise fitouts and produce bespoke furniture and product. We chat to Savage Design about facilitating this move towards customisation.

Savage Design’s work ranges from office fit out pieces, cafes, bars to private residences. They have become well known for taking on harder to manufacture projects working with an array of materials specialising in metals, and also offering customised manufacturing services.
“Over the past few years we have seen an evolution from people seeing product that they want to replicate, to now understanding styles and how they can design spaces and product to help highlight this expression,” says James Groom, creative director of Savage Design.
James says Savage Design enjoys facilitating this design process. “Made up of designers and engineers, we have the knowledge of understanding what the industry is after as far as aesthetics and finishes while also being able to find and manage the most effective way of manufacturing the product.”
Savage Design offers the opportunity for face-to-face consultation to discuss ideas and projects. “Our understanding of the Australian market is comprehensive and we pride ourselves on personal service with shorter lead times and cost competitive prices,” says James.
