Simplicity and Purity,
Made in Melbourne.
Ross Gardam established the contemporary furniture and lighting studio in 2007 with the aim to create quality, original and accessible design. Ross Gardam™ offers a collection of internationally acclaimed products, each hand crafted in Brunswick in Melbourne, Australia. Our Brunswick studio comprises a passionate team of designers, engineers and makers. All products designed by Ross Gardam embody a unique, modern aesthetic. The studio strives to achieve simplicity and purity in everything we do.
Ross Gardam™ products are made to last, using high quality, ethical Australian manufacturing. Quality is integral to everything we do, from design, material selection and manufacturing through to packaging and after sales support.
Being close to our manufacturing base allows us to be hands-on with production. We assemble, check and package each lighting product in-house. Advanced materials and processes combined with manufacturing partners who share our dedication to excellence ensures each product reaches the highest quality. Being disciplined with material use underpins every step of our design and manufacturing process and is paramount to how we gauge the success of all our objects. All our lighting products utilise the latest in LED energy efficient technology and our upholstered products carry certification with EcoSpecifier™.
Reinterpreted for Today.
Pairing traditional techniques with high end manufacturing technology results in products which are elegant, accessible and made for today. We partner with a select group of Melbourne based manufacturers who work across areas including glass blowing, upholstery, timber fabrication, ceramics, metal spinning and stone masonry.
As a design studio, the Ross Gardam team endeavours to create objects that have a stillness and timeless quality. Work is often characterised by contemporary innovations married with traditional processes, imbued in heritage and ritual. Often inspired by nature and with a distinct curiosity to explore new outcomes.
Working across lighting, furniture and object, Ross Gardam™ products embody Ross’ personal ideals on authenticity, design content and quality. At the essence of many of the collections is a celebration of the inherent variations in texture, grain and finishes of natural material.
