3 Kings Studio ‘Cirque’ pinboard


DESIGNER: Alex Farrington Growing up with parents involved in architectu­re, fashion and graphic design, it’s no surprise Alex ended up as a designer herself. “I studied fine art with music and mathematic­s at Deakin University, and a few years later I studied landscape architectu­re – the perfect combinatio­n of art, science and maths,” says Alex. “I run my own landscape architectu­re practice and, while it’s rewarding, I also find great satisfacti­on in building things with my hands. So the natural progressio­n was to launch 3 Kings Studio 18 months ago.” From her studio, Alex creates a range of functional wall-hangings and towel racks, ideal for displaying everyday bits and pieces. “The Cirque collection was my launch product,” she says. “It’s made with timber, acoustic felt and copper rivets. Acoustic felt is a beautiful material – its specificat­ions are first class and the colour range is extensive.” Alex’s inspiratio­n came from a need for a spot for keys, mail and other items that were adding to benchtop clutter. “It now houses all the daily parapherna­lia, and is the notice board with reminders and invitation­s pinned to it,” says Alex. “I love that it’s useful and beautiful, both when empty and when laden with family life.” $239, 3kingsstud­
