Elliot Bastianon is an Australian designer who recently debuted new furniture. Each piece is composed of natural, organic wood that gives nod to his roots.
Persuasion is a bench that has been created entirely from one single sheet of folded EchoPanel®. The repeating V-pleat folding pattern gives the bench a strong foundation, and is further reinforced by reclaimed timber beams. Bespoke stainless steel hardware, stiff timber, and the EchoPanel® create a stark contrast between organic and artificial.
Traditional Eastern screens are updated with a contemporary material in the Sliver screen. The clean, straight lines of the frame are a nod to history, while a playful geometric pattern strikes a chord of curiosity in the user.
Lastly, this bed is a simple and honest piece of furniture at its best. Renovated timber forms the underframe, while the grander headboard is made from a cross section of a Red Gum tree. Clean and unprocessed, its straightforward nature works in any space.
