Designer Pinboards launches, offering a stylish and unique way to organise your paper.



December 4th, 2013

Pinning paper to boards for organisational purposes used to be restricted to bland notice boards, cork boards and fabric boards. Not anymore.


The concept of Designer Pinboards Australia was developed by Kathy Joyce and David Heads, both sought-after Sydney designers.  They felt compelled to create their own designer pinboards due to the lack of good quality, inspiring notice boards; not only for their own spaces, but for their clients as well, who were craving something stylish yet functional.


After three years of research and development Kathy and David created the designer pinboard. Not only was it functional, but it was like a piece of art in itself.


David Heads says: ‘Our designer pinboards are different to any other pinboard on the market.  They’re hand crafted from the highest quality materials in order to provide long-lasting enjoyment and service.  They are one of the most cost-effective pinboard investments around.’


As well as being durable, the designer pinboards have other unique features as well.   ‘All our pinboards are self- healing,’ says Kathy Joyce.  ‘This means that the board closes over once a pin is removed, ensuring that there are no unsightly holes.  As a result they are truly functional pieces of art.’


The materials used for the pinboards are all sourced from renewable resources, with the actual recyclable pinboard constructed from a linseed-based board.  The boards are also antibacterial and anti-dust, making them ideal for kitchens, schools and offices.


The pinboards from Designer pinboards come in a range of colours, sizes and designs, with their most popular design being the hexagonal design pinboards.
