I was so excited recently to discover that Australian sustainable art-furniture designers Zaishu were back in production with their iconic stools after a break of more than two years. I have dearly loved Zaishu's many collaborations with International and Australian artists including Julie Paterson (Cloth), Louise Olsen (Dinosaur Designs), Florence Broadhurst, Rachel Bending (Bird Textiles), Stewart Russell (Spacecraft), Beci Orpin, David Bromley, Angus McDonald, as well as local artisans through their social art projects. I'm sure that you've seen a well-placed Zaishu stool in cool interiors over the last ten years, as well as in the permanent collection at Sydney's Powerhouse Museum.
Zaishu has recently re-launched with new designs including these beauties - the third stool in collaboration with guest artist Nicola Cerini:
blog also shows sneak-peaks at some amazing designs featuring photographs of India, and I can't wait to see the new collection, releasing in March 2013.
You can find Zaishu stools in the online shop. Read more about Zaishu here on Bondville.
