Bassike Paddington

 

The bassike Paddington terrace Store has undergone its first transformation since opening in 2009. The store design reflects the bassike evolution having grown from the original organic cotton jersey collection to including women’s & men’s ready to wear, japan made denim, accessories & fine jewellery, and bassike mini collections.

Bassike’s Deborah Sams & Mary Lou Ryan have partnered with Akin Creative on the store design which elevates the spatial experience through contemporary furnishings & premium design details.

On the ground floor a blending of materials sees hand-selected silver travertine worked across point of sale bench tops, soft grey Italian leather upholstered display plinths, and flax linen fitting rooms carpeted with sisal and finished with artek stools. A central staircase in powder coated steel leads to the lower ground which is anchored by tonal woven rug and Hans Wegner occasional chairs which open out onto a quiet rear courtyard with a teddy-bear magnolia tree & a circular steel planter framed by white concrete plinth stools, cultivating a relaxing environment for shoppers.

“We’ve enjoyed creating the new space in which we have continued to evolve with the brand. Each of our stores have subtle points of difference while always feeling familiar and true to the bassike DNA.” – Deborah Sams, co-founder & director – bassike.

“Redesigning bassike Paddington has allowed us to align the Paddington flagship with the bassike brand as it stands today, but also how we envisage the brand growing over the coming years.” – Mary Lou Ryan, co-founder & director – bassike.

Here is something new for fans of original design, the team behind Authentic Design Alliance and Factory Design District have announced  DESIGN-MADE a there day event celebrating Australian design and will span over three days from October 27–29 and focus on original, accessible and sustainable design pieces.

Cor o-founders Kobe Johns and Anne-Maree Sargeant, the market has been some time in the making. They have each been in the sustainable design scene for years, both in various capacities. Johns is the one-woman show behind Factory Design District, a three-day exhibition of new and established Aussie designers which has formed the basis of DESIGN-MADE  Sargeant, a designer herself, has been attending and curating design events since 1987. In her position as director of the Authentic Design Alliance, she’s a strong advocate for originality in design and the ADA is also attempting to outlaw the grossly prevalent counterfeit trade that is hamstringing the Aussie furniture design scene.

The event will be held across two venues — SUNSTUDIOS and the Fisher and Paykel Experience Centre — and is more than just a market. While the phrase ‘a celebration of Australian design’ is a little cheesy, it’s probably more accurate. You can expect educational talks, book signings, workshops, installations and ‘meet the maker’ forums. Of course, there will also be craft beer, organic wine, yum cha and food trucks to fuel your browsing.

Exhibitors include: CULT, Dinosaur Designs, Hava Studio, MUD Australia, Spence & Lyda, Archer Objects, Fresh Prince, Ilanel, Jonathan West, Tom Fereday and Tom Skeehan, along with installations from LOCAL DESIGN and Interpretations V, a design collective created by Andrew Simpson featuring eight leading Australian designers.

Over the three days there are numerous workshops ands I am excited to announce my Instagram master class where I will share all my tips and tricks for what works for me on my favourite social media platform
