Designers Ben and Kiri Wahrlich launched ANAESTHETIC in 2011.

Our brand is based on simple values – we create clever, sophisticated products that are original in design and made to a high standard from carefully considered, enduring materials.

We distinguish ourselves via our technical approach to design, anchored by a strong understanding of engineering techniques. Our products are engineered and made in Melbourne using solid, honest materials and are proudly designed with a contemporary aesthetic, that honours the past and challenges the future.
