Fomu is a Melbourne based design studio with an aim to design and create objects which embody simplicity while using beautifully considered form and details to enhance the overall functionality of the design. All Fomu products are manufactured in Australia from ethically sourced materials.
Andrew Beveridge and Gabrielle Beswick combine their collective knowledge to design beautifully refined pieces of furniture for their design studio Fomu.
Originally from Tasmania, they relocated to Melbourne to pursue a future in design. Both enrolled at RMIT University, Andrew studied Furniture Design and Gabrielle studied Fashion and Textile Merchandising. After a few years of making furniture and working within the fashion industry, they decided to combine there knowledge and launch a multi-disciplinary design studio together.
