New Volumes can now be found in Cult showrooms across Australia, making for a textbook example of perfect synergy as both brands are steadfast supporters of local designers and makers.
October 11th, 2019
For more than 20 years now Cult has been steadfast in its determination and dedication to providing great design from local and international product designers. In recent years, keen followers of the brand would have discerned an increased focus on the support of local design. NAU the brand, and its growth year on year, comes to mind.
More recently, however, Cult has announced that New Volumes from Artedomus will now be available in Cult showrooms throughout Australia. The two companies, leaders in their respective fields, have long been friends. In fact, Cult’s showroom in Fortitude Valley, Brisbane, has hosted Artedomus up until very recently (the roommates are soon to become neighbours).
At the helm of New Volumes is creative director Thomas Coward, with a collection of furniture and accessories for the home and office. Collection 01 consists entirely of one single material, Elba, and explores the strength and history of the rich and complex stone.
Bringing Elba to life, the machine-cut, hand-finished designs come as a result of collaboration with a series of known and celebrated Australian designers – Dale Hardiman, Emma Elizabeth, Marsha Golemac, Nick Rennie, Ross Gardam, Sarah King, Tom Skeehan, and as previously mentioned from Artedomus Thomas Coward.
“New Volumes is a brand that fosters Australian creativity, working with local designers to create beautiful, quality products. This endorses the values of our own brand, NAU. The collection perfectly complements our offering of Australian design,” says Richard Munao, founder of Cult.
