HOLO, an experimental design collaboration formed by Australian designers Christopher Thomas and Michael Travalia have launched their third furniture collection at DMY Berlin, the Berlin design festival , May 1st – 5th.
The collection is called the ‘foundouk‘ series and is inspired by a design jam session the designers took in Morocco. It features a comfy leather beanbag called ‘daybed’, the ‘kech’ aluminium screen and room divider , the silver ‘pool’ drinks tray and aluminium ‘lantern’ tables .
The work will continue to grow and mature, adding another layer of personal and shared experience over a period of time. By visiting a different place each year, we can draw inspiration and energy from it, translating aspects with a common dialogue.
+ About HOLO
Project HOLO is a creative one. Focused on the exploration of ideas and the process of generating exciting, diverse objects and furniture. It is a new concept created by Australian expat friends Christopher Thomas and Michael Travalia.
Now living in their respective cities of Bergen and London, the pair sought to connect on an informal basis, to share a common passion for design and travel. The partnership visits a new country on an annual basis, drawing inspiration from it’s unique sense of place and the craft of the region.
We hope to reflect on different experiences, creating something new and exciting from each intensive session and share our findings through the resulting work and exhibitions.
