Studio Becker Arrives in Australia

Based in San Francisco, designed in Italy and manufactured in Germany, Studio Becker is a truly trans-continental operation – and they’re soon to be available in Australia.

In demand across Europe and the US for their range of high-end kitchens and wardrobes, Studio Becker’s coveted Ultimate Home Collection will bring thoughtful, forward-thinking design and the highest quality cabinetry to an Australian market hungry for classic, creative, customisable furnishings.

 

The Studio Becker showroom, in inner-city Redfern, will officially open its doors on 20 August at Saturday in Design.

The 750sqm warehouse – previously home to Rolling Stone magazine – will be as much a drawcard as the products themselves. Designed by national award-winning architect Dale Jones-Evans, the space will function as a display theatre and art gallery, regularly featuring guest artists.

 

Bespoke walk-in wardrobes and bedroom storage solutions will be housed on the first floor. Downstairs will be home to high-end, exclusive bespoke kitchens installed in a theatrical “black box” concept space.

Studio Becker’s journey to Australia began when Fiona Lochtenberg – who is responsible for bringing the brand to our shores – stumbled across a store in San Francisco with a mysterious black façade.

Once ushered in, “what followed was a tour around a veritable Aladdin’s Cave of kitchens, each of jaw-dropping craftsmanship and design,” Lochtenberg recalls.

“The innovative design and quality of everything, down to the smallest accessory was like nothing I had ever seen before.”

 

Visitors to the new Sydney showroom can expect the same sense of drama and mystery – and the same sense of having stumbled across a truly spectacular range of products.
