Mast Brothers Chocolate
From its humble beginnings in a small apartment kitchen, Mast Brothers has established an international reputation for producing some of the world’s finest chocolate. The combination of slow traditional techniques on a factory scale, a spirit of experimentation and insistence on quality has seen the emergence of a new way of crafting chocolate—right in the heart of Brooklyn.
Best Made Co.
For some, the axe is a tool of daily worth. For others, it is a portal into our recent history, where our urban existence first rose from a distant wilderness. For Best Made Company, it is a potent symbol of our past, used in our present, and full of the possibilities of now—an invitation for adventure. Best Made began with an axe, and in just over three years the company has expanded upon this core product into an array of accessories required for a life of escapades and excitement, stocking knives and enamel mugs, to camping chairs, blankets and first aid kits ready to patch up the grazes of the most serious woodsmen.
Independent automotive designers Paul and Tino Huet’s business is seeped in passion and patience. Their cars, built in the fierce and faithful tradition of classic racers, strike a balance between the archetypal characteristics of machines created purely for speed and the improvements offered by half a century’s worth of automotive development.
Stevie Gee is full of sage advice. He answers questions with a heightened enthusiasm mixed with a measured modesty. His irrepressible gumption for creating is apparent in his energetic, playful illustrations, scenes of jocular characters and sporting anecdotes, sub-cultural irony and flamboyant masculinity.
Earth Tu Face
Sarah Buscho and Marina Storm have a strict doctrine for skincare production. Made from 100% food grade organic ingredients, the Earth Tu Face product is not only good for your skin, but good enough to eat. That is, ‘good’ from its source to its refinement, and even ‘good’ when thrown away.
Run by Rodney Eggleston and Anne-Laure Cavigneaux, March Studio can be characterised as a triangulation of architecture, graphic design and public art, enabling transformation through connection with the social heart.
Oliver Fowles and Patrick Bek are Uniform Wares, conceived, designed and developed out of East London in 2009. The two produce watches that blend Japanese and Swiss engineering with British sensibilities and modern utility. Within this process, a vigilant balance is maintained between function, finish and material to realise collections of contemporary timepieces that endure in a digital age of immediacy and obsolescence.
An ANU Honours student and graduate of Design Academy Eindhoven, Henry Wilson wrestles with the dilemma of the sustainable instincts of a designer and the commercial inertia of ‘designing’. His practice finds resolution in honest products designed for longevity, and in the repurposing of symbols, shapes and objects discarded through obsolescence.
Ben Huff’s pursuit of ‘sincere photography’ has led him through landscapes infused with elemental hardships and humanity’s habitative peculiarities. In addition to documenting his home of Alaska, Huff also teaches young photographers at the University of Alaska Southeast.
Fusing simplicity and splendour, London-based studio Minimalux designs objects that gild the boundaries of singular form and luminous finish. Since its establishment in 2009, the studio has assembled a collection of objects that, while small in scale, meld function, quality and tranquil proportion to form the dazzling outcome of a fastidious application of minimalist and luxurious principles.
