Justin Hutchinson

Justin’s furniture career has helped define some of our most loved landmarks and has been recognised both internationally and locally in exhibitions such as Melbourne Now, presented at the National Gallery of Victoria. His experience spans almost two decades from production hand, in house designer, lecturer and business founder into a highly experienced Design Director who with the support of his team looks to execute on every detail.

In 2017 the studio released its inaugural collection namely Johanna and Otway. The Collections have since gained considerable interest for their marriage of crafted excellence and refined design. Johanna and Otway will form part of the new Australian Embassy Atrium in Washington DC, USA.

The Frame Living System is the result of in depth research into innovative connection systems providing an exact and robust method of installation for many interior walls; from masonry through to plasterboard. Justin was determined to find a solution that was free of formaldehyde, phenols, solvents, PVC or melamine to provide a wide range of functions and finishes to complement each room. Frame has been recently shortlisted for one of Australia’s premier interior design Awards.

Each design is the result of many small innovations to produce an uncompromising level of honesty with a refine precision and accuracy. Always endeavoring to translating materials and form into a strikingly, considered and timeless design.
