Meet the inspiring talents of the future
This May in Sydney, our panel of buyers, industry veterans and guest judges met with an eclectic mix of the Australia’s most promising emerging and established talents. After lengthy deliberation, Lane Crawford is proud to introduce our newest runners-up.
Sydney-based designers Patrick Crea and Stu Freeman joined creative forces in 2015 to give the humble incense burner a creative overhaul. Art director Freeman was always drawn to bright, bold colours and inspired by food being used in a non-conventional way, while Crea, a menswear designer noticed the rise of incense used in the world of retail. The duo set out to put a satirical twist on the everyday, turning familiar functional objects into witty art pieces, their handcrafting ceramic incense holders shaped as a banana, pizza slices and fried eggs, are cult interior icons.
