The Fortynine Studio were commissioned by Davenport Campbell to design and develop custom plant pots and copper fixtures for the interiors of the Mirvac pilot space, a design project in central Sydney.
A new and exciting space, the project sought to create a relaxed and homely feel within a workplace environment. A series of playful, animated plant pots were developed through experimentation with flop moulding and slab forming techniques. Made using local terracotta clay, each pot features hand painted slip decoration and a unique set of feet, adding to their individual character. Glazed on the interior to make them waterproof, the planters were designed to accommodate standard sized plastic pots that would be filled with hired plants and changed as needed.
The pots are dotted throughout a shelving system that also features a selection of Banksia Lights, designed by Ben Elbourne.In collaboration with interior designer Saul Garcia, The Fortynine Studio also developed and made bespoke copper fixtures for the space. Coat hooks from folded copper sheet were made to measure, and a set of spun copper pencil holders brought a new level of detailing and craftsmanship to the commercial fitout.
