Pampa Rugs

Pampa is a homegrown business based in Bungalow, NSW, founded by two photographers - one from Argentina, the other from Australia - who share two worlds, two visions and two cultures. Every year they explore some of Argentina’s most remote indigenous communities, to seek-out the finest rugs that have been handwoven using traditional materials, designs and techniques. “Pampa” is the word used in Latin America to describe the open plains, lands that lay uninterrupted to the horizon.

Yuṯa Baḏayala

Yuṯa Baḏayala is a collaboration between traditional Yolngu weavers from Elcho Island Arts in Arnhem Land and Koskela. It is a long term project very close to our heart, which aims to provide Indigenous weavers with an additional stream of income from their work and to introduce new and compelling ‘art products’ into contemporary interiors. We feel really passionately that we have an obligation and a meaningful role to play in using our design skills to address some of the social issues that are around us.

Koskela chats with Studio Artists

For the second consecutive year the Studio ARTISTS have been ‘cushioning up’ and getting close with Koskela. Studio ARTISTS is an initiative of Studio ARTES Northside, a not-for-profit, independent organisation offering professional development to artists with disability. As a collective, Studio ARTISTS seek to build community support and facilitate events to enable the wider community to engage with the artist on a personal level. Members from the program have exhibited in both national and international exhibitions. We love this group of artists!

Loom Rugs

With every table, sofa, bed, or custom fit-out we design, we imagine a beautiful rug being added to complete the setting. Koskela has been the Sydney stockist for Loom rugs for a few years because the quality, range and colour stories that Loom has to offer is the perfect match to our furniture collection.

Koskela + Made in Australia Video

We have the joy of working with some of the world’s best manufacturers right here in Australia – true masters of their craft. This beautiful glimpse behind the scenes of the making of Koskela pieces speaks for itself. It captures so much of our hearts, which we know most of you, our customers, share too. We hope you enjoy it!

Malcolm Greenwood

We’ve been lucky enough to work with Malcolm Greenwood for the last 3 years. He is one of Australia’s leading master potters, living and working in the Northern suburbs of Sydney. He’s the genius behind our Shino and White series ranges of tableware and now a beautiful new range of Licht pendant lights in three beautiful textural finishes and two sizes. His extensive work as a ceramicist makes Malcolm's work both beautifully considered and immaculately produced.

The journey of a lampshade

We thought you might enjoy reading the story behind this beautiful lampshade and the journey it undertook to come into being. Many of you know about the Yuta Badayala collaboration that we have been working on with the wonderful weavers from Elcho Island. You may not know that Koskela and Mavis Ganambarr are finalists in an international exhibition called Love Lace which was set up by the Powerhouse Museum in Sydney.

“It’s the same way when we make Tjanpi work, sitting around with family and sharing stories. Sometime joking around, sometimes talking serious, but always sharing stories. Family is where we learn from each other and how we hear all the news.” JENNIFER MITCHELL
