Schamburg + Alvisse
Return to native Australian works at the studio of Schamburg + Alvisse. The duo’s work, like the trim Stretch Series spun-fiberglass stools, could be mistaken for Italian design. It is also New York high-concept, as seen in the interactive, linked-tetrahedron modular sofa that the firm launched in 2005. But the furniture is all made in Australia. The same goes at more mainstream Schiavello, which manufactures its entire inventory on shore to the tune of a recent $40 million facilities upgrade.
