The inaugural collection of many to come, New Volumes, Collection 01 is range of designs for the home and office crafted solely from Elba stone by a “distinct assembly of designers to bring the material to life”.

What do Thomas Coward, Ross Gardam, Dale Hardiman, Marsha Golemac, Nick Rennie, Sarah King, Tom Skeehan and Emma Elizabeth have in common? Perhaps a better question would be what doThomas Coward, Ross Gardam, Dale Hardiman, Marsha Golemac, Nick Rennie, Sarah King, Tom Skeehan and Emma Elizabeth most recently have in common ? Premiering in Melbourne this June at DENFAIR, New Volumes is a new collection for the home and office from Artedomus designed and made is collaboration with the aforementioned slew of highly regarded, exceptionally talented and innovative-minded local industrial designers and makers.

Collection 01 is the first of an annual series briefed to explore and push the boundaries of what it’s like for a designer to work with a single material. The inaugural collection explores Elba, a rich and complex stone 250 million years old, that is cut by stone and hand-finished into the object we see before us.

“Our story begins here and stems from our travels and connections across the globe, through which we identified an untapped volume of story and space,” says Artedomus Managing Director Phil Brenton. “New Volumes was the idea born out of this void and has become a way for us to express ourselves through people, design, materiality and of course, their stories.”

The seven other designers, notes Creative Director Thomas Coward, were chosen in part for their genuine understanding of, and appreciation for, the gravity of Elba as material of choice. But also for their design portfolio that exhibit a unique approach to form, process and material.

“For thousands of years [marble and stone] have been a symbol of luxury and our dominance of the natural world. We use it in sculpture to immortalise figures, leaders and heroes, and in architecture to build monuments, shrines and pillars of grandeur. At home we walk on it, we prepare food on it and we bathe in it. Through great power from both man and machine, we excavate it and it enriches our personal and public realms,” says Thomas.

Sincere, serene and strong are the key descriptors used to communicate the pieces, and fittingly so.
