In 2000, the fusion of these two intentions inspired Ross Didier to evolve his family’s long manufacturing history and establish a creative studio, with a unique approach to design.

His products have been procured by Nintendo, Microsoft, Westpac, Hewlett Packard, Google, Belconnen Arts Centre, Nomad restaurant and the Australian Defence Force. Didier has Elfin stools in Times Square, Tiller chairs specified throughout the world, Obelisk sofas in the Denver Art Museum, Terra Firma tables and bespoke seating at Vue de Monde and Bombala lounge chairs outside the Sydney Opera House.

Didier’s work is underpinned by a strong philosophy that manufacturing, ideas and design are interwoven – an approach to designing he refers to as engineered art.
