Tivolivat beginnings

The other day I found this little scribble on a piece of paper,
it’s the first sketch I did of my wooden decorations.
It made me realise that I tend to forget how many
twists and turns I take before the actual product appears.

Also dug out some photos I took on a creative day Mel and I had in the studio.
Remember Tom’s magic box of tape I told you about?
Do you recognise the design that came out of my taping moment?

Swiden Design on The Design Files

If there is one blog that I never get tired of, that I just have to
have a quick peek at every day, it’s The Design Files.
So when a post like this pops up I start using silly words like
flabbergasted and gobsmacked. I will be smiling all week long.

Tom & The Creative Space

I’ve always envied those people that seem to have an ability to make anything with their hands. Tom Burless is one of those people. Weather it’s a delicate handmade paper-bag for an artist or a massive welded installation display for a gallery, Tom is your man.

When I moved into our Collingwood warehouse I was trying to figure out what title to give
my new studio friend. I just ended up saying, Tom is a maker, he makes things, any things…
and you can trust that what he does will be just perfect.

I love walking into Tom’s space and guessing what project he will be working on.
A beautiful wooden box will appear, a lamp installation for a design space, a handmade camera…
if I’m ever stuck for ideas I can be sure that I can borrow something from Tom,
like a box full of tape in all the colours of the rainbow.

One day I discovered that Tom types his invoices on a typewriter onto lined writing paper,
what did I say about attention to detail?

If you’d like to borrow Tom’s hands and mind his email is:

Thank you all for making the TIVOLIVAT launch party so wonderful.
It was great to see so many old and new friends show up.

You guys are the best. All your nice feedback, comments and
your presence made me feel like a very lucky person.

Melissa Pacella helped make the cushion installation into something special
and my partner Clem Stamation animated my wooden decorations.

Here is some happy snaps from the event.
