About Us

As a small team of creatives, we honestly love the work we do. From our Brisbane-based studio, our mission is to create beautiful laser cut decorative metal screens which inspire people to reflect, ignite conversations, admire the beauty and ultimately, enhance the space in which they live, study and work, through distinctively different, drool-worthy designs.

We listen. We create. We deliver. We thrive on your stories and we look to strategically create solutions which go above and beyond your expectations.
