Artedomus – Australia’s leading supplier of unique, high quality stone, tiles, architectural surfaces, bathware and furniture for commercial and residential architectural projects – has been in the game for close to 30 years. Since the mid-1980s, its team have been passionate about promoting the intrinsic beauty of Italian floor and wall finishes that maintain simple and chic understatement over modishly recherché ephemeral trends.
It was this forward-thinking and future-proof ethos that suffused throughout the entire space of the Artedomus showroom last weekend for Contemporary Wine In Design. Even the building, itself, stood testament to it: designed in 1959 by some of Australia’s premier architects (Hobbs Winning and Leighton), the structure is an icon of quintessentially Australian architectural modernism, lending a truly unique backdrop to the Artedomus suite of Italy’s finest.
Celebrating all things Agape on the day, visitors were treated to one-of-a-kind work by luminaries including Patricia Urquiola, Gwenael Nicholas (of Curiosity), Angelo Mangiarotti, Benedini Associati and their stellar design alumni. Thanks to the incredible styling of Rebecca Grace at Natural Art, the space was (literally) brought alive by hanging gardens of ferns and orchids perched from the ceiling beams and peeking over cornices to tumble down marble walls.
If you missed out on Contemporary Wine In Design this year, don’t lose heart – all of the incredible products on display in our exhibitor showrooms are still waiting for you! Pop on down and say hello. To give you a little taste, however, have a browse of the gallery above.
The team at Contemporary would like to thank Artedomus for helping bring to Perth one of the State’s biggest design events of the year.
