Launch of Tahiti parasol range for Sywawa

The Studio’s first work for Sywawa, the leading outdoor contemporary parasol brand, is a reinterpretation of the traditional straw beach parasol. The project allowed for the exploration of how far one can evolve this typology by experimenting with materials, form and colour and with this design we intended to create a wholly contemporary statement in keeping with the Sywawa design philosophy, but which also alluded to its classic origins.

FABRICATE

The Gabbertas Studio comes together with Hainsworth, certainly the oldest and probably the most innovative woollen textile mill in England to present an exhibition of furniture and fabric…. an edit of new, recent and favourite designs that are reinterpreted using selected Hainsworth cloths.

This collaboration celebrates the potency of bringing together tradition and innovation, the relevance of the designed and made in England and the value of products that have the ability to stand the test of time through their inherent quality.

The Gabbertas Studio is presenting a selection of its new, recent and favourite designs that are reworked and reinterpreted using Hainsworth fabrics in a range of edited colours and finishes. The result is that each design takes on a new life, liberated from the standard specification that is set in stone by virtue of these designs being originally intended for mass production.

Fabricate will explore how each design’s personality is transposed by using and combining unfamiliar colours, textures and materials, a process which intrigues and for which Hainsworth’ s range of fabrics is perfect.

This is the first time that Hainsworth has used its famous fabrics for contract upholstery.

This is the first time that the Gabbertas Studio has had the opportunity to bring together so much work for different companies under one roof.

Nuno for Allermuir launched at Neocon

Nuno was borne out of a desire to approach a traditional design typology, the multi-purpose stacking chair, from a new perspective. The defining characteristic of the design is the use of the lamination itself as a structural component whereby the leg frame and the seat are integrated and interdependent, providing strength for each other. This has the significant advantage of minimising the need for a separate steel frame structure under the chair, and allows for a closer stack as well as a visually refined and pared down profile. Nuno is the 5th project the Studio has worked on with Allermuir in a partnership going back nearly 20 years, and it will be launched in Europe later in the year.

Tommo for Allermuir upgrade at Neocon

The Tommo range was originally launched over ten years ago and continues to sell well, and this year it receives a facelift in the form of a new quilted upholstery treatment.

Ebb Mobile for Leland launched at Neocon

The Ebb Mobile unit takes the design essence of the successful Ebb bench system which won a Best of NeoCon Award in 2011, and completely alters its function, creating a highly flexible and moveable storage unit for personal and personalised use.

Ebb Mobile is truly mobile and very flexible, both in how it can be used and how it can be configured.

The idea is that office personnel can ‘own’ a unit for as long as they are using an office and move it around as their working environment changes throughout the day. In co-working situations, it allows people a small amount of permanency to store certain necessary daily items. Storage options for the Ebb Mobile include a personal drawer, a bin, a filing cabinet, or simply open storage for larger items, and an optional handle to move him around.

The Emotion of Design

Mark Gabbertas at Design Junction

Mark Gabbertas, founder of the Gabbertas Studio, talks about what makes him tick, the Studio’s approach to design and their work for Oasiq.

EXOTERIC/ESOTERIC

London Design Festival 2014

The studio celebrates its collaboration with Oasiq in EXOTERIC ESOTERIC, an exhibition of its work for the recently established and already feted outdoor furniture brand, including a number of new collections. The London Design Festival 2014 will be the first time these designs have been seen in the UK, and marks in effect the UK debut of Oasiq. This body of work is the culmination of three years’ design and development, and will take up residence at The Chelsea Gardener for three days over the festival.

“A decision to mount this sort of exhibition is not one taken lightly, but it felt entirely justifiable now at the London Design Festival to present a body of work of which we are extremely proud and which encapsulates so much of what we strive to do as a studio. We are lucky to have found a soul mate in Oasiq, a company who asked us to work with them at their inception, with the result that we are in the rare and privileged position of seeing our vision for the brand realised. So yes, this exhibition is a journey from the esoteric to the exoteric……how our particular design thinking for the outdoors manifests itself.”

The award winning Sandur Seating collection is augmented with the addition of two stool designs and an ottoman, and the Machar table range is added to with new surfaces and materials. New will be a dining and occasional table collection and two seating ranges.

Oasiq is respected for its clever and measured aesthetic which balances references to mid-century design with uncompromising contemporary thinking. The brand creates collections that bridge outdoor/indoor use; they are designed to withstand the rigours of outdoor environments, but have a finesse making them perfect for indoor use too.

Bearing the studio’s distinctive design hallmark, there is a concision to the thinking behind these designs that manages to combine the characteristic search for simplicity with a desire to imbue individuality and personality to each piece.

Mark Gabbertas’ single minded and disciplined approach to the role of brand auteur is evident throughout this exhibition, and it is interesting to note how each collection relates to another through an integrated and complimentary design language, and at the same time contributes to the overall Oasiq catalogue.

As inspiration, Mark Gabbertas has taken naturally occurring geophysical patterns and features and recast them via a propitious combination of traditional craft techniques and cutting edge materials.

“We are lucky that Oasiq share our commitment to getting it right. Great work does not come about by accident but by a mercurial combination of inspiration and persistence. We believe amongst our work for Oasiq, there is some of our finest.”

Location: The Chelsea Gardener

‘Curing the China Syndrome’

Mark Gabbertas @ Design Junction Seminars, London 2013

‘Not so very long ago it looked as if all manufacturing in Britain had migrated to China and left no one to turn out the lights. In a short space of time – and with the help of some revolutionary technologies – that looks all set to change.’

A panel of manufacturers and designers -including Mark Gabbertas – went in search of the value that the idea and reality of ‘Britishness’ can bring to a brand, and explored new relationships between designer and maker.

In addition to Mark Gabbertas, the panel comnprised Cressida Granger, Mathmos.

Making Designers exhibition

Clerkenwell Design Week 2013

Making Designers exhibition will show the school work of well-known design stars, to inspire tomorrow’s generation of industry leaders.

Before they were stars of their industry, many of todays top designers were curious school students exploring the DT workshops. The foundations of their careers were made there, among the dusty band saws, and the models they knocked up have come to represent their first steps down successful career paths.

For Making Designers, ONOFFICE in collaboration with furniture brand MARK, unearth those modelsand and bring them to Clerkenwell Design Week, in a show that hopes to inspire young designers to keep designing with their hands. Showing their earliest works are Jay Osgerby, Michael Marriott, Linda Morey-Smith, Matthew Hilton, Tom Lloyd, Simon Pengelly, Ab Rogers, Gala Wright, Anna Hart, Terence Woodgate and Mark Gabbertas.

Haven and Ebb launch @ Neocon ; Interior Design magazine

Allermuir first launched The Haven system at Orgatec in 2010 and it is now to be launched in the USA at Neocon 2011. The range comprises sofa and bench modular units, screens and tables and are designed to work as individual items or as an integrated system. This range is concerned with the psychology of space and the increasing requirement to be able to create different types of space within a working or leisure environment. The key to this is flexibility, as the system allows for the creation of private, interactive or public areas and thus a range of activity types, ranging from the formal to the informal, the solitary to the interactive and of course working to relaxing. By selecting and combining the individual units in different ways, this is all possible.

Leland International launch the Ebb bench system at Neocon. Ebb is a series of laminated wood 17 ½’’ [450mm] high units with a solid colour interior. These units bring together the functions of seat, table and storage, and this flexibility is underlined by the option of castors, seat pads and power units. The largest unit is just under [3000mm] 10ft long, one of the longest single laminations in production, whilst the smallest, at 2 ft [600mm], becomes ‘own-able’ by a single person as a sort of ‘all in one’ piece of furniture. The range of straight ebb units is also linkable via a series of rounded ‘hubs’ which allow the creation of ‘DNA like’ patterns especially in large open plan interiors where imaginative seating configurations help define and give character to that space.
