rob southcott is one of the most exhibited industrial designers working today.
Chances are you’ve seen his Mustash end tables or Totem Cups. With a portfolio that covers lighting, furniture and product, his designs are whimsical, clever and often beautiful.
His sculptural bench United We Stand, with its intertwined boughs twisting above the heads of the those who sit upon it, is a triumphant harmony of concept and execution.
He takes a similar approach with Community, a cabinet that takes different kinds of timber from a specific location and combines them in a way that is both eye-catching and speaks to the idea of multiculturalism.
