KEEP THE PIECE

VOGUE Living Australia - - VLoves -

THE HOT SEAT Gorsia De­sign has been cre­at­ing cov­etable hand­crafted fur­ni­ture (such as the Rivoli-X lounge chair, pic­tured) for more than 20 years. But un­til re­cently, Aus­tralian shop­pers could view the col­lec­tion only on­line. Now, in good news for lo­cal de­sign lovers — and any­one who’s lusted after a piece but wished they could see it in real life be­fore com­mit­ting — Gorsia De­sign has cho­sen Mel­bourne’s South­bank as the site for its first in­ter­na­tional show­room.

THINK GLOB­ALLY

Thanks to his back­ground in ar­chi­tec­ture and his ex­ten­sive trav­els, Gorsia De­sign founder Jay Gorsia brings a unique ap­proach to his fur­ni­ture brand, with each piece de­signed to pro­vide func­tional lux­ury.

“Gorsia De­sign de­liv­ers qual­ity above all — qual­ity in terms of ma­te­ri­als, con­struc­tion, fin­ishes, over­all look, feel and com­fort,” he says. “We’re con­stantly seek­ing new ways to do things dif­fer­ently and to re­vi­talise clas­sic ideas with mod­ern tech­niques.”

Each piece is hand­crafted in Kolkata, In­dia, and the team works with home own­ers, in­te­rior de­sign­ers and busi­nesses to cus­tomise its de­signs to suit their needs rather than merely dec­o­rat­ing spa­ces with trendy fur­ni­ture, Gorsia says. The ar­chi­tect and de­signer, whose work has taken him around the world, says Mel­bourne is the ideal set­ting for his new show­room.

“To find in­spi­ra­tion, I al­ways look out­wards and take my cues from my trav­els, weav­ing them into my de­signs,” Gorsia says. “This is why we chose Mel­bourne for our new home. It’s a rich melt­ing pot of cul­tures — a true re­flec­tion of Gorsia De­sign.”
