It Starts with The Yarn



For my final project I created a table fixture designed by incorporating the historical loom-weaving processes used by Avoca, from the perspective of 4th Class children at Belgrove Senior Girls School.


Colour is one of Avoca’s trademarks┬┐, and children love colour. Using the loom, the children worked together, creating their own throw based on the colours of Avoca's signature throws. I used the children's creations as inspiration for the colours and patterns you see in my  vertical table┬┐ fixture design.

My display tells a story of how the children's creations informed the design development process for my fixture, from concept to resolution. Resulting in a playful yet contemporary retail fixture that is rooted in the history of Avoca's handweaving traditions.
