Crafted by Jochen Heinzmann the Felix Box is an unconventional twist on the conventional box-with-drawers. Instead of pulling out straight, each drawer swings out hinged on opposite sides of the box, which requires the drawers to be curved on both sides. With the form follows function maxim of modern design in mind, the side walls of the box follow the shape of the drawers. This creates the unique rounded trapezoidal shape of the box.

The Grog Log crafted by Chris Mitchell, an old favourite here at the Gallery, is back once again and can be purchased online or instore for $37.

For the Anzac Day commemorative rugby match between the Brumbies and Chiefs we were commissioned to make a bespoke Kip to fit two Anzac Centenary commemorative coins from the Royal Australian Mint. In lieu of the coin toss, a quick game of two-up was played to decide the kick off.

Bungendore Wood Works Gallery opened September 14 in 1983. Thirty years later an exhibition featuring the work of 30 designer makers and artists will open that does not look to the past, but to the future. The title of the exhibition is NEXT. This is something all involved ponder, not only the very nature of the objects they design and make, but possible new directions for their practice and indeed their lives.
