2013 has been a busy few months so far for Axolotl, with the launch of Axolotl Timber and brand new Website, we have still managed to complete a range of exciting projects that we have added to our eclectic portfolio.
Tiffanys have recently completed the Bondi Junction Westfield - our third Tiffany project where Axolotl have played an integral part. Working with the Tiffany design team, we produced a range of glass blades incorporating the Tiffany wheat leaf design that was executed in silver leaf and then laminated between two sheets of starphire glass. The blades majestically surround the centrepiece diamond cabinet.
The Lindt café in Sydney's CBD, designed by Rolf Ockert was another project featuring Axolotl Glass. This time using Miro curved glass, laminated with a chocolate and gold mirrored banding as seen in the image below.
The head office of Melbourne's John Holland underwent a new fitout, with design by Futurespace. It boasts another great use of Axolotl concrete on the Fluted blade walls, surrounding the elevators. The space emphasises a great use of texture, soft furnishings and colour.
Bronze Verdegris Garden Features
We were very impressed with the final result of these huge planters and water features, coated in Bronze then aged with a Florentine and Verdegris Patina. Our coatings have really transform the aesthetic of the raw GFC, to create a unique and authentic finish that seamlessly blends into the environment.
Warburton Art Project
Since 1993 Kiln formed glass has been an important medium of expression for Ngaanyatjarra People involved in the Warburton Artist Program in the Warburton Ranges, Western Australia.
Recognising the importance of this venture, which encourages creativity in the region, we are pleased to announce that artist Warren Langley has donated one of the large glass forming kilns used by Axolotl. The Ngaanyatjarra community share a similar passion for expression in glass, and we are pleased to be a part of encouraging further development of their glass making.
An Anomaly + Axolotl House
In line with our commitment to not just meet needs - but to create them, we will soon be launching our next venture in design - a new undertaking under a different banner, bringing a blend of contemporary and traditional materials which will really shake up the market. In parallel, we are also working on a new Axolotl retreat in the Hunter Valley which will be available as a private guesthouse. More information in upcoming e-cards.
