AWRY, 2019

Designed around the contemporary issue of decreased living space, AWRY presents itself as a space saving, multipurpose piece of furniture. Fusing the properties of a stool and side table allows the AWRY to minimise furniture footprint. The design draws inspiration from abstract art, allowing the products use to be interpreted differently by the individual.

The selection of native hardwood timbers embeds Australian heritage into a beautiful and durable finish able to withstand a lifetime of use. Designed for consumers living in confined living spaces that desire more from less.
