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.
