Fable Outside by Didier

Fable outdoor collection designed by Ross Didier, Fable Outside by Didier, Fable Aluminium version
Fable Oak collection was first introduced as six essential utilities: a spoon, a bowl, a stool, a chair, a table and a storage cabinet by one of Australia’s most successful and original commercial designers, Ross Didier.

Scape Collection by Tait

Scape Collection by Tait, Scape designed by Adam Goodrum for Tait
DESIGNED BY ADAM GOODRUM Reminiscent of flowing rock formations, Scape elicits a soft, organic design language - nurturing a more humanised connection to our vital public spaces and common areas. Nesting adjacently to one another, the modules reference the uninhibited nature of rocky landscapes. Scape’s earthy and wholesome curves offer an inviting sense of warmth, tactility, communal sensibility, and kind-of intangible ‘friendliness’. Scape gravitates people toward it - subsequently drawing activation to the spaces it inhabits. “I have fond memories
