David Trubridge – new for Spring

Wild nature combines with artistry and design.


We are thrilled to bring you the brilliant, contemporary lighting designs of acclaimed New Zealand designer David Trubridge!

Derived from the structure and patterns of nature and a deep passion for the landscape, his original designs reflect a breezy, sophisticated flavor of the South Pacific.

Sensitivity to the environment is paramount throughout his design process, and that sense of care is imbued within the objects he creates. The results are authentic and enduring, achieving maximum effect with minimum materials.

Fantastic New Designs From F!nk+Co

Fantastic New Designs From F!NK + Co.!

Great news! We are now bringing you two additional spirited and innovative Australian designs. Both are playful and distinctively F!NK + Co.

New Creamer + Sugar Set

Creamer + Sugar Set

Deep Blue and Red Sets (above)

The Creamer + Sugar Set strikes a sublime balance between technical innovation, distilled form and functionality. The three-piece set perfectly enhances the ritual and pleasure of serving tea or coffee. The playful design of the Creamer elicits the surprise of a bottomless container and the Sugar Bowl is ideal for serving cubes or granules.

Sushi Set

An extension of F!NK’s exhibition pieces, the soft lines of the Sushi Set challenge the perception that metal is a hard and static form.

The gentle undulations create a sense of flow and movement like rippling water. The sensual nature of the shape complements the Japanese art of aesthetically displaying the beauty of the prepared food.

F!NK’s Iconic Water Jug

Sustainable Elegance from Husque

Introducing Bauple, Wax, Gobble & Frag!

We are excited to officially launch four new shapes
in the Husque collection, created by one of our favorite designers – Marc Harrison.

Like the original Husque bowl, the vessels’ forms are inspired by their distinctive ingredient – the Macadamia Nut. The expanding range broadens the vocabulary of shapes available, from the spherical whole nut to geometric broken shells.

Bauple & Wax

Playful Bauple bowls, available in two sizes, represent smooth rounded halves and are the perfect accompaniment to the Wax serving platter. Wax’s form is reminiscent of early Bakelite castings which inspired the creation of the Husque composite material, and features rounded corners and molded feet.

The edges of the striking Gobble bowl are thick and faceted with three points, and it is available in two sizes.

The elongated Frag platter creates an original centerpiece for any setting and takes its inspiration from narrow shards of cracked shell.

All of Marc’s designs share a modern mix of elegance and play, and create a fabulous impact in both residential and commercial settings.

Xploff captures the explosive impact of the big bang! Elliptical discs race outwards, caught in a moment of time, bursting into a joyful array of light.

The Acacia light is inspired by the incredible hallucinatory qualities of the medicine plant. Twisting, turning and tumbling in on themselves, the seed pod shapes wrap around in a continuous flow of light imbued energy.

Designer Profile – Spacecraft

Designs abroad is thrilled to bring the gorgeous works of Spacecraft studio to the US market! Spacecraft’s founder, Stewart Russell, is a man of many talents – contemporary artist, textile designer, curator, mentor, and collaborator; that is inspired by defying classification. We carry two series of printed works on canvas from his Melbourne-based textiles company, Botanical Paintings and Backing Cloth Paintings.

Spacecraft Studio

The Botanical Paintings series features Australian flora (flax, fennel and peppercorn) in a range of graduated colour schemes with shimmering metallic details. They are available in multiple sizes to suit a variety of spaces and price points (shown below are from left to right fennel in black, peppercorn in green and flax in warm grey).

Botanical Paintings

The Backing Cloth Paintings are unique works derived literally from the backing cloth of the studio’s experimental project table. Ideas, tests, even sketches accumulate on the canvas over an eight week period. Once saturated, the backing cloth is divided and cut into individual works of art to share with the public. They are available in a standard assortment of sizes.


Fortunately, we have a fresh batch of Backing Cloth Paintings to bring to you every eight weeks that captures the brilliant evolution of Spacecraft studio!

“I suppose above all I want Spacecraft studio to continue to be adaptable, light on our feet, constantly challenging ourselves to invent new ways of doing things. So the design and printing processes aren’t fixed, anything can happen, be changed or modified…” -Stewart Russell

Both Spacecraft’s Botanical Paintings and Backing Cloth Paintings can be customized for commercial projects such as hotels, serviced apartments and corporate offices. Shown below an international corporate headquarters, where a series of floor to ceiling customized Backing Cloth Paintings adorn the foyer.
