The Story

Elliot Bastianon is a furniture designer based in Canberra, Australia. Graduating in 2012 from the Australian National University with a BA/BVA (Honours), he has a diverse material palette and attempts to extrapolate the most from everyday things around him; often combining materials in ways that he hopes will direct his practice down a path not often taken.

For Bastianon, furniture isn’t just something utilitarian. It’s an apparatus of communication, a tool to deliver a message or encourage a different way of seeing the world.

Bastianon is also the founder and studio director of the shared workshop, Six Wiluna, a place that provides machinery and space for early career designers to develop their practices.


Orientation expresses the capacity of an acoustic sheet to function in furniture applications. In this piece, two sheets of EchoPanel® are bent to form large ‘V’ sections which are then fixed to the underside of the oak top. To resolve the problem of joining these dissimilar materials, inspiration was taken from traditional methods of furniture construction and bespoke timber fasteners were created.

About the Blog

The LOCAL DESIGN blog is a creative visual diary with content created and contributed by leading local and offshore creatives and designers.

We want the creative community to hide their inhibitions, let their hair down and showcase whatever their eclectic heart’s desire. From the projects they are working on, the places they are visiting, their childhood memories, what music they are listening too, whatever makes them tick, it is a complete open online creative platform. Go on we dare you to pick up a camera and tell us your stories….

Along with this open-minded approach to the blog we will also be reporting on global and local design weeks, events, exhibitions, shows etc. with raw and real visuals alongside interesting insider perspectives.

We are very excited to see what will happen on these pages……
