The Story

Kate Banazi and Ryan McGoldrick or rye were introduced through LocalDesign.
The two have similar ideologies on re-use, distortion and the manipulation of substrate and light and decided to work together to create an item that will be shown during Milan Design Week 2017.

The concept of the piece was to create a collaboration of two halves, where the juxtaposition of two practices and personalities meet whilst not compromising our individual voices. For Kate, this was an extension of her perspex and paper artwork which reference identity, interlocking shapes, relationships and shadows cast. For Ryan, it was equally the rigorous process of creation and design as building relationships and mentorships within the design community.



The aluminium light shades were hand spun in Mittagong and hand finished at the workshop facilities in the University of Canberra. They were then given their anodised finish by the team at F!NK Design in Queanbeyan.

Precision metals of Queanbeyan produced some of our assembly whilst the lighting component was machined and hand finished using the workshop facilities at the University of Canberra.

Custom colours, sizes and finishes available.

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……
