The way we live is shifting, as urban centres grow and more importantly the metropolitan lifestyle becomes increasingly desirable, apartment living and downsizing are likewise increasing.
Deka Furniture have responded to this shift, and the changing expectations of functionality and aesthetics, with their new range of living, dining, study and bedroom furniture.
The collection is produced locally in Queensland using ‘low technology’ and requiring minimal resources. Each design is self-contained within a box – almost like childhood transforming toys – which serves as protection during transport as well as storage.
Hoop pine, plywood and vibrant textiles have been used as a minimal palette, complimenting “sub-tropical architecture and a sustainable way of life”.
You don’t need any special tools to transform these pieces, yet they don’t feel at all like temporary furniture whether they’re packed away or left assembled.
It’s so rewarding to see beautiful, functional and appropriate furniture being made locally with local resources and addressing our changing way of life.
If you’re in Brisbane you can see the range in person at the Deka pop-up shop 168 Grey Street, South Bank (next to Artisan’s (m)art).
