Anchor Ceramics, Australia
Bruce Rowe is an architect and designer-maker. He maintains a design practice grounded in architecture, ceramics and painting. His approach is to integrate these areas of inquiry with each informing and enriching the others. Anchor Ceramics is a ceramics studio founded by Bruce Rowe in 2012. Based in the Pop & Scott collective workshop in Northcote, Victoria; a deep respect for the tradition of craftsmanship infuses the atmosphere of the Anchor studio. Handmade methods, timeless processes and considered products that can be passed on through generations are driving inspirations. The intention at Anchor is to produce functional ceramic products that enhance daily life and the quality of the spaces that we all occupy.
The form and surface based inquiry of ceramics is fundamentally connected to and informs Bruce’s practice as an architect with MAKE Architecture. For Bruce, ceramics is a kind of reconnection of the designer with the maker; ultimately it allows him to undertake both designing and making with an understanding of the specific requirements of each.

A New Beginning for Machines and Hands Among contemporary furniture manufacturers, Mattiazzi, the family owned producer of wooden furniture in Udine, Italy, is uncommon. While many producers in that region rely on third party factories and work in diverse materials, Mattiazzi operates with their own machines and hands, and has developed a healthy obsession for woodworking. Since 1978, when brothers Nevio and Fabiano Mattiazzi founded the company, Mattiazzi has steadily cultivated its local manufacturing culture. Their network of wood shops is diverse enough to support any manufacturing process the brand may need. Every shop has its own focus, from milling to lacquering, and a particular process always belongs to a specific part of town. But don’t let the neighborhood approach confuse you: Mattiazzi is no backyard shop. Their highly specialized craftsmen operate the most sophisticated machinery available to the wood industry. An eight-axis CNC milling machine allows wood to take the complex shapes associated with injection-molded plastic. Operating such a machine is an art and Mattiazzi disproves the modern myth that mechanised manufacturing is not a craft.
Mattiazzi offers also a GECA certified range.

The name Massproductions alludes to the beauty of efficient, sustainable, high quality industrial production. By working closely with the engineers and machine operators at their production facilities, Massproductions ensure the integrity of their vision down to every cut and bend.
In 1999 two designers – one Swedish, one British – started working together as consultants to the furniture industry. Together, Magnus Elebäck and Chris Martin took on big league clients, and then ten years later decided to launch their own furniture company. Sharing a neo-modernist vision of functional, elegant design, decided to break free of PR-driven product strategies to create a furniture company focusing on the interplay between object and context. In order to realise their vision, they assumed control of the entire production chain – manufacturing, sales and marketing. This pioneering approach has paid off handsomely, not only in design clarity, but also in distinguished awards, renowned clients and representation in the permanent collection of the Swedish National Museum of Arts.
