“The need of the immaterial is the most deeply rooted of all needs. One must have bread; but before bread, one must have the ideal.” – Victor Hugo

IMG_2586We’ve been moving back up the chain recently… Before we had coffee, we had bread.

Having worked ourselves hard on the Filter build for Andrew Kelly at Auction rooms lastIMG_2590 year, one of their good friends and an essential part of the IMG_2604network of extremely high quality producers in Melbourne  – Pippa and Michael of Tivoli Road Bakery asked us to help re-envision their space at Tivoli Rd South Yarra…

Well this is one of my happiest moments really – when we get asked to put our creative faculties to work for good people who know how to trust the process, and are putting their own integrity on the line to make the best productIMG_2593 they know how to… Well that feels like good business.

IMG_2602We got to make and install a heap of beatiful materials – American oak, solid copper, perforated folded copper sheet…
One of the key characteristics of this build is that all the materials are easily re-usable, and everything we made and installed could be easily de-mounted and moved to another space in half a day….

Beyond sweet bread, the way to judge an IMG_2600outfit like this is by the employees – and at Tivoli Rd, we are always pleased to hang out with aIMG_2612 gang of hard working, happy folk.

 

Thanks people – its been great!
