‘Icebergs’ Opening night will be held on Thursday 4th May at the Design Twins store in design precinct 75 in Sydney’s St.Peters and will run for 2 weeks.
Homewares Mecca Design Twins and local artist Jennifer Lia join forces to launch new collection celebrating Sydney’s Iconic Coastline.
Sydney based duo Crystal Bailey and Mitchel Lindsay of Design Twins have come to be known as a staple for homewares and interiors savvy buyers through their refined and fresh selection of Australian made and designed products.
Jennifer Lia’s striking and unmistakable coastal inspired acrylic on canvas works – notably her signature ‘Icebergs’ painting have seen her recently grace the pages of Virgin Voyeur magazine and Huffington Post.
The collaboration was born through a mutual admiration and natural fit for both brands and culminated in an upcoming exhibition ‘Icebergs’ featuring 12 original works framed in Tasmanian Oak and limited edition homewares range from the Sydney based artist.
With their wildly successful concrete homewares range and now stores opening in Los Angeles and abroad, Design Twins have established themselves as the ‘go to’ for all things interiors and a platform for emerging local artists. “As Design Twins continues to expand, we wanted to create a space where we could make our signature pieces while celebrating the best of Australian designers and local artists. A homewares store, featuring our in-house studio, was just the perfect combination for this next step in our journey.”
Jennifer Lia’s inspiration stems from her home in Manly and love of the coast – on her recent body of work:
“My work is always inspired by the ocean in some way - it’s healing, cathartic and magic – everyone has some connection to its awe-inspiring power, fragility and raw beauty”. This collaboration is the culmination of this. I think people really identify with their local spots – they hold memories and transport you”.
Off the back of her first solo exhibition in Sydney’s iconic Paddington Reservoir, this new exhibition allows the artist to explore her body of work across new mediums.
Her new interpretations can be seen in a limited edition capsule range of her signature ‘Icebergs’ hand painted on Design Twins coveted concrete pots available in 3 sizes and part of the upcoming exhibition.
