Just over three years ago, we launched our first exclusive collection of Australian furniture; the AG x Cult capsule of residential and commercial pieces by acclaimed designer Adam Goodrum. Since then, our product development arm has grown significantly in size and recognition; and we are now working with a collective of designers from around Australia including Adam Cornish, Adam Goodrum, Jack Flanagan and Gavin Harris. This collective will continue to organically grow and evolve over time.
Adam Cornish // The scope of Adam Cornish’s work includes an impressive range of design disciplines, from furniture and household innovation, to commercial and residential installations. Cornish’s interest in design stems from his curiosity into the ‘how’; how things are made, how they perform and how they will endure the test of time. After studying Industrial Design at the University of Technology Sydney and Furniture Design at Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology, Cornish is now based in Melbourne, with products represented by luxury Italian brand Alessi.
Adam Goodrum // A firm believer that every environment is defined by the objects within it, Adam Goodrum designs with the philosophy that an object must therefore justify its existence – through its story and detailing. For this reason, his designs celebrate process and craftsmanship, and accentuate components and joinery to create functional pieces with spirit and personality. In recent years, Goodrum’s work has been awarded a host of design accolades including the NGV Rigg Prize, Vogue x Alessi Design Prize, Indesign Luminary Award and the Idea Awards Editor’s Medal. He has also been commissioned to design pieces for several global luxury brands including Veuve Clicquot, Alessi and Cappellini.
Jack Flanagan // Hailing from Western Australia, Jack Flanagan is an industrial designer inspired by the junction where engineering and art meet. His design objective is tocreate objects that will last the test of time, both physically and aesthetically. Working out of a small workshop in Perth, Flanagan’s designs are beautifully crafted by hand. He enjoys the manufacturing process; testing new methods and equipment to create unique objects that push the boundaries and apply familiar approaches in unfamiliar ways. Naming John Lautner as one of his design inspirations, Flanagan’s work is thoughtful, resolved and timeless.
Gavin Harris // Gavin Harris is a futurist; ultimately inspired by how people will live and move around in the future. By day, he is the Design Director at a commercial interior design firm. In his spare time, he fuels his passion for product design. Resourceful and fresh-thinking, Harris loves the design development phase and finds great joy in sketching and prototyping his ideas. He has a Bachelor of Applied Science in Built Environment from Queensland University of Technology, giving him a unique foundation to approach.
