A collaborative effort between Australian designers showcases the strengths of both, and the wonder of collaborative work.
April 20th, 2015
Collaboration is quickly becoming one of the trademarks of the Australian design industry, with those who are stepping up to the challenge accomplishing remarkable feats in design.
Case in point, textile house At Work with Camira has recently completed work with Koskela and Artillery Interior Architecture on a project for QIC Melbourne at 80 Collins Street, a large development with multiple tenants.
The fitout has been designed to work as a pilot floor to showcase what could be done with the building for prospective tenants. The aim of the fitout is to attract innovative, creative industry clients who may be interested in a more flexible, collaborative workspace.
Koskela’s Lodges were seen as being perfect for breaking up the space into fluid work zones, and injecting some functional fun into the space. Hoodie Workpods were also used to provide people with work areas that were suitable for non-collaborative tasks that required concentration.
Blazer, At Work with Camira’s key wool felt, made from 100 percent pure new wool, was an obvious textile choice for this project. With the vast and on trend colour palette together with high durability and excellent price point, the resulting project produced a successful design solution between Artillery Interior Architects, Koskela and At Work with Camira.
The very nature of Blazer, together with other At Work with Camira fabric options, make for ideal fabric choices when designing collaborative seating options. “With a focus on quality and sustainability, Blazer is a lovely product to work with,” says Sasha Titchkosky, director of Koskela.
Blazer’s complete supply chain accountability, from farm to fabric, originates out in the natural beauty of Banks Peninsula. This results in a beautifully soft woven upholstery fabric with a milled compacted felted finish. A further stamp of environmental approval is the fabric’s accreditation to the EU flower Eco label.
It should come as no surprise then, that the collaborative and successful results of Melbourne’s QIC project were only possible through the magic combination of Artillery Interior Architects concept vision, Koskela’s furniture and the final customised touch of At Work with Camira.
