at a glance, the collection by tom fereday for the new australian brand SP01 is pared back and minimal, yet upon closer inspection, each piece has a refined detailing. the outdoor furniture series has a heavy focus on the bending of metal wire, which is then mixed with an earthy natural material palette including marble and timber. ‘SP01 outdoors’ are the result of a design process that has led the designer to create pieces that are meaningful to people and their environment.

‘fereday is a rising star of industrial design,’ says matt lorrain, SP01 head of design and product development. ‘he has an innate understanding of the impact the environment can place on furniture. proximity to the sea and exposure all year round to the elements provides challenges for furniture to survive, so having an australian designer work on the collection brings a feeling of confidence. we then spent an enormous amount of time making sure the manufacturing process exceeded international standards.’
