One of Australia’s most inventive furniture designers, Melbourne-based Ross Didier is guided by the founding principle that his products must be innovative, intriguing and functional.
ABOUT THE BRAND
”Design is Shaolin kung Fu where Art is bare knuckle fist fighting. I mean artists can do whatever they want for their art and this liberation is the point of what they do. Design on the other hand has disciplines with givens, and to ignore these misses the point of designing. Good art communicates ideas and good design is useful, then the stories this creates is inspiring.” Ross Didier
Didier is a furniture design and supply company based in Melbourne, Australia. Established in 2002 from the evolution of the family’s long manufacturing history, we are an in-house team working closely with other makers and fabricators, engaging skilled craftspeople both locally and internationally. We are an eclectic practice that continually play, experiment and strive to make good design with our furniture spanning higher volume, commercial production through to smaller project commissions.
For designjunction 2019 we will be showcasing the full Fable collection of furniture for commercial, workplace and residential spaces, including new pieces in oak and introducing the Fable outside range.
FABLE “Think simple”
Fable is a furniture design collection that originated with a chair, a stool, a table, a bowl, a spoon and a storage cabinet; six essential elements pared back to bare original character. These typical elements are also represented in mythical folklore and seem to conjure belief that a woodsman has simply stepped outside, chopped down a tree and hand carved these functional objects – the simplicity of this setting defines cottage craft and each object is created uniquely from materials that seem immediately accessible from just outside the door.
Fable is crafted from solid oak with skilled manufacturing details disguised within a simplified aesthetic and return to the original ideals. The range has now been extended to include a range of high stools, armchairs, lounge chairs, an open bookshelf, tables and mirrors. Fable Outside introduces the collection for exterior use with matching character in aluminium, stainless steel and sand cast seating. Each piece is hand fabricated and toughened up for braving the harshest of elements.
