Schiavello Unveils New Melbourne Retail Range + Showroom


Schiavello has just launched its new retail furniture line with the opening of a new showroom in Melbourne’s Southbank. The Australian company built on quality, service excellence and innovation, has been creating and servicing world-class work and living environments for over 50 years.  Their fresh focus on residential furniture will establish a new visual and design language for residential living locally and beyond.

“Our decision to move into a retail offering has been prompted by the increasing blur between our personal life and work life, shifting from the notion of ‘work life balance’ to ‘work life integration.’ -Design & Marketing Director, Anton Schiavello

The new retail showroom will highlight the designs and products that bring certain workspace design sensibilities into the home, such as technology and enabled furniture.  Located at ground level at Southbank’s Prima Tower, the warm, light-filled space showcasing local and international design by Schiavello and MAP features interiors by award-winning designers, Hecker Guthrie.

Clean lines, layered volumes and a mix of textural materials create balance and a distinctively architectural approach. The basis of the material palette is formed by full-height glass, light timber veneer, textured white rendered walls and natural oak flooring. With multiple lounging areas delineated by moss green and light grey carpet, the showroom offers a moment to pause and consider. A vertical garden and hand-blown glass vases with draping greenery add an organic, serene ambiance throughout.

The lighting has been carefully considered to capture different moods throughout the spaces. Custom-designed lighting and glass sculptures by Melbourne designer Mark Douglas add a distinctly residential feel, while structured light boxes recessed into the walls illuminate vases and books. Over-scaled portals allow light to filter between the spaces, enabling a glimpse of silhouettes and definition to the lounge spaces.

Schiavello is part of the Denfair Design Loop taking place during Melbourne Design Week (15th-25th March). One of 16 Design showrooms and studios inviting you to explore curated installations exploring the theme ‘Celebration of Material’, Schiavello's exhibition is entitled MR Chair Deconstruction: The Art of Sitting. I'm heading to Melbourne this weekend and am hoping to check this out! For more information take a look here
