Pen was established to support and promote Australian designers, underpinned by a strong ‘design local’ ethos that embraces both onshore and offshore manufacturing opportunities. Pen is a vehicle to enable and support authentic design and ethical practice; it also simply fuels a love of good design.

Pen’s first product is a clever reinterpretation of the traditional dog kennel and is expressed in an elegantly simple form reminiscent of a child’s typical line drawn representation of home. The Dog Room is in keeping with Pen’s Slow Movement philosophy, the same environmentally conscious approach that will be applied to subsequent collaborations with multi-awarded Australian designers Nick Rennie and Jim Hannon-Tan.

“We’re constantly looking at what’s missing in the market and thinking about ways we can improve it. A problem’s not a problem, it’s a challenge that needs a solution,” says Susan Chung, creative director, Made By Pen.

Kate Stokes and Haslett Grounds are among Australia’s most exciting design partnerships. They’re the husband and wife team behind Coco Flip. The pair first exhibited with Workshopped in 2010 with the very beautiful, and now iconic, Coco Flip pendant light.

New from Kate and Haslett is Mayu, a distinctive and delicate hand crafted shade, inspired by Icelandic landscapes. The Mayu range brings warmth and elegant sophistication to any area of the home, and the sculptural forms are equally suited to commercial contexts.
