Tait had much to celebrate at its recent 25th anniversary soiree, held in the group’s brand-new space in Sydney’s Waterloo. Having spent a quarter of a century collaborating with a roster of renowned Australian design talent, manufacturing each piece to perfection in a custom Melbourne factory, Tait has been an imperative player in the growth of Australia’s design industry. Reflecting on twenty-five years of designing and making, founder Gordon Tait presented a new icon – the Tait makers mark. The application of the makers mark would identify and reveal the authenticity, quality and craftsmanship of each piece.
Joined by a guest list of Australian designers, design industry figures, media, company partners and collaborators, attending guests experienced the new light-filled double volume space as well as the recently launched, highly acclaimed Trace collection. The evening was met by guest speaker Adam Goodrum, who told of his long-standing history working with Tait. Cheers to Tait on this great milestone and here’s to the next 25 years of great Australian design.
