Habitus Conversation Series – Sixhands
Design Hunters meet the trio behind textile studio Sixhands
It’s not often you get to meet the people behind the
creative brands you love. So design-lovers jumped at the chance to meet the
lovely ladies behind Sixhands at the Habitus Conversation Series on Wednesday
The girls – Alecia Jensen, Brianna Pike and Anna Harves –
have recently started creating products for interior environments, which were
the focus of the night. Inspired by their own studio space, the girls styled an
intimate temporary venue at the new Hill St Precinct in Surry Hills with fabric
and wallpaper swatches, cushions, inspiration boards and music.
An informal chat between the girls and Paul McGillick
(Habitus Editor) revealed their collective approaches, inspirations and
processes. Then audience members were invited to take part in a Q+A session and
further interaction with the ‘props’. One lucky guest also took home one of the
new designs – a cushion which is yet to be released.
