Koskela  Innovative and inspiring Australian furniture, design & lifestyle brand. Designed by Koskela. Made in Australia. Social Enterprise.

We are very excited to share a wonderful project we were part of which has been published in the Australian Financial Review's Life and Leisure liftout today. It was a big collaborative effort to get this project realised – the team consisted of Yuwaalaraay artist Lucy Simpson, @gmiyay, who created the wonderful concept, interior designers Geyer, committed client Westpac, 16 weavers from Elcho Island Arts and @milingimbiartandculture and Koskela. The concept Lucy developed was based on the local language word "Dyalgala" which means to hold or embrace. Our role was to assist with the design resolution of the pods and to work with the weavers to realise these beautiful structures. We're happy to report that close to $60,000 was paid to the artists and art centres who spent months collecting materials, dyeing the materials and weaving them. Lucky Westpac staff who get to take a moment out of their workday to quietly reflect under these incredible canopies!

A @waverleymills recycled wool blanket flapping in the breeze atop Hobart’s chilly Mt Wellington! Natural unused fibre, offcuts and seconds blankets from this historic textile mill in Launceston are shredded, spun and blended with supersoft wool to make the recycled yarn. It’s woven into a beautifully big blanket measuring 150 x 190cm, and the perfect snuggly addition to your home or bedroom this winter. Tap to shop.

Our Quadrant Soft sofa is looking very sharp in this home by @coaparchitects with beautiful interiors by @lot1design. We designed this sofa ten years ago and its versatility makes it an enduring favourite. They are used everywhere from kids’ play rooms to corporate offices! Better still, you can easily customise the upholstery to suit your style. Email info@koskela.com.au to enquire, or browse ready-to-ship Quadrant Softs via the link in bio.

The ceramic Earth Light from @anchorceramics has a new dark green colour! We are longtime fans of this wall sconce. It’s cylindrical shape formed on a potter’s wheel is pure understated elegance. The new colour took months of development, but we think they have nailed that perfect shade of olive. Tap to shop!

This weekend is your last chance to check out the @jilamaraartsandcrafts and @janeamckenzie exhibition at the Koskela Gallery. A series of etchings and original ochre paintings by indigenous artists Timothy Cook, Janice Pungautiji Murray, Pedro Wonaeamirri, Conrad Tipungwuti and Dino Wilson sit alongside Modernist architecture-inspired sculptures by ceramicist Jane McKenzie. Despite coming from very different worlds, these works share an affinity with the red of the earth. Shop via the link in bio, or drop by from 9am-4pm today or 10am-4pm on Sunday.

Legendary designer Vince Frost of @frost_collective has started a podcast, Design Your Life®. The second episode just dropped where he chats with Sasha & Russel, our hardworking Directors who started Koskela almost 20 years ago. The interview delves into the importance of social enterprise, how indigenous culture impacts Koskela’s brand, and why they believe the most important thing is to follow your heart.

We have three beautiful new colours in our Ceramic Licht Pendants: Guning (orange), Yanadah (white) and Minak (black). These are handmade locally in Sydney by respected ceramicist @malcolmgreenwoodceramics. He uses a stoneware clay imported from Japan and applies a high-gloss glaze on the inside to reflect the light. The stunning sculptural pendants are available in large or small – shop via the link in bio.

In honour of the Queen's birthday holiday we would like introduce you to these gorgeous Queens of the desert! Each one is an amazingly talented artist and part of @iwantja_arts, located in the remote APY Lands of Central Australia. As as one of the most acclaimed Art Centres on the contemporary art scene, we are very lucky to have an upcoming exhibition of their paintings called Kunga Kunpu, which means 'strong women'. Their artistic strengths are certainly evident in the 12 large-scale works, full of vibrant colour and detail. Come check it out from 23 June!
Artists in order of sequence: Betty Chimney, Julie Yatjitj, Betty Muffler, Rene Sundown, Kerry Anne Robinson, Maisie King, Emily Cullinan. Photography courtesy of @iwantja_arts and taken by @the_interloper_
