More than just illuminating a bright corner, statement lamps not only create ambiance, they are also a talking point for your room. Atollo lamps are no exception.
For many years now, Atollo has no longer been a lamp, or rather, it has no longer been just a lamp. It has become a myth, an icon: one of the best know symbols of Italian design worldwide, one of the very few products which people recognise and call with its own name.
The ATOLLO 235 table lamp (featured) is an investment piece worth talking about.
While Bendigo has a rich Gold Rush history with stunning heritage buildings lining its streets, it’s a city that is recently embracing all that is food, culture and art.
Bendigo Art Gallery has featured some sought after exhibitions over the recent years and this season is no different.
Marimekko: Design Icon 1951 to 2018
The globally celebrated Finnish brand Marimekko is renowned for its bold patterns, vibrant colourways and timeless design. Lesser known is it was also a pioneer of feminism.
The creation of Finnish textile artist Armi Ratia, Marimekko translates to “Mary Dress”, and the brand’s early designs of A-line, free-fitting robes and oversized button-ups with practical pockets helped unshackle women from the restrictive silhouettes of the 1950s.
Take the trip up the highway and make a day of enjoying Bendigo’s finest wine bars, cafes and restaurants and boutique shopping.
