Post Industrial Design

Gertrude is back!

Gertrude is back in stock! Gertrude is a wonderful children's story written and illustrated by locals Jessica Dean and Marc Eiden (and yes I am talkin local - as in West Footscray!) This beautifully illustrated book is in line with the philosophy of the writer, Jessica Dean, who believes children's literature should not be "dumbed down" This is a magical adventure suitable for children 5 years and up. Ever met a celebrity LION or a body building GORILLA? What about a fashion designing LIZARD, a troupe of freedom-fighting acrobatic RATS or a spectacular SPARROW? Jessica Dean first launched Gertrude at Post Industrial Design last year. The launch included and exhibition of limited edition prints from the illustrations. The launch and the exhibition was a huge success, so much so that we sold out of books totally! For all those people out there who have patiently waited for the next edition to come in - the second edition has finally arrived! Now available in-store or online. Jessica Dean has done a number of literary talks including last year at the Open Studio's. She is also doing an event You are innocent Until you dream as part of the Maribyrnong Literary Festival The incredible work by all collaborators, Blacksparrow, Marc Eiden, Sean Hogan & Kim Aleksandrowicz. A great collection to any child's library!

Nordic stoneware bowls

These delightful nordic stoneware bowls with feet are nature inspired. Organic forms, rustic detailing and earthy hues make for beautiful design. I love the rich blues and organic tones in these pieces. These two little serving bowls would make a beautiful addition to the table. To me they are begging to be filled with warm olives and spiced oils . . . . Mmmmm!


Upcycled cushions

Just in is a new range of cushions exclusive to Post Industrial Design from Seam. Made from upcycled pure NZ wool blankets filled with soft fiber these are perfect for the winter months. For those 'not in the know', ‘WeFo’ is the parochial term coined by the infamous Lauren Wambach from the Footscray Food Blog. WeFo = West Footscray . . get it? And of course “WeFo cool” goes without saying! Available online or in-store.
