A Remodern wrap up of DENFAIR 2018

Posted by Remodern on

Remodern had a great week exhibiting at DENFAIR in Melbourne, seeing new and familiar faces, meeting clients and showcasing the new BUZAO Lava Stone collection to great feedback and acclaim.

The Remodern stand featured furniture, lighting, accessories and jewellery from BUZAO, including five new products to its collection. The BUZAO range is characterised by simple, geometric and modern forms that magnify the natural beauty of lava stone and the studio’s exquisite craftsmanship.

Like the BUZAO collection, the Remodern stand was bold, black and minimal. BUZAO products have a unique tactility and distinctive aesthetic that is best appreciated in person, and visitors certainly appreciated seeing, touching and experiencing the products firsthand and up-close.

BUZAO products embrace the organic, textural finish of lava stone, which is formed through the cooling and solidification of magma. This creates large pores in the rock along with randomly embedded minerals and crystals. BUZAO highlights these imperfections and irregularities by refining the stone’s form and surface, and coupling the stone with polished brass and black aluminium elements.

BUZAO’s range of pendant lights offer simple and sculptural rounded forms in a variety of shapes and sizes. The lava stone lights have brass or black-aluminium details to create refined and striking contrasts between the smooth, elegant finish of the metal and the organic, textured finish of the lava stone.

F Side Table, BING Side Table and RIGHT Table are new to the collection and have round lava-stone table tops on a black powder-coated steel base. The F Side Table (above centre) also features a brass vice and a raw lava stone that makes each table one of a kind.

The HOLD collection includes a range of black lava stone vessels, including the HOLD Platter, Tray and other vessels in various heights and diameters.

The Red Dot Award Winning Insight Jewellery Collection combines textured and polished materials, with ink-black stone coupled with 18-karat gold filled brass. The jewellery collection includes four necklaces, two earrings and two bracelets that play on the themes of point, line and volume. Every detail, down to the packaging, has been carefully considered. Each box is a series of stacked planes showcasing the individual elements and held together by brass screws.

See more of the BUZAO collection online or at the Remodern showroom at 30 Viking Court, Cheltenham, Melbourne. By appointment, Monday to Friday, 10am to 5pm.

Alex Seton’s Pygmalion featuring Fameg

According to Greek mythology, the sculptor Pygmalion carved a statue out of ivory that was so beautiful and perfect he immediately fell in love with it. The story has influenced many artists over the centuries, including playwright George Bernard Shaw, and has given rise to the ‘Pygmalion effect’ – a kind of self-fulfilling prophesy whereby higher expectations of others lead [...]

Industrial luxury elevates previously raw interiors.

An increasing number of prominent designers are seeking to elevate the traditionally raw-industrial interior with a luxurious edge. By combining larger industrial elements of concrete, glass and steel with high-quality design details and finishes, the often-perceived coldness of an industrial interior is transformed into an inviting composition of raw and refined material luxury.This resulting ‘industrial luxury’ strongly resonates with us at [...]
