Sydney Opera House chooses Australian design


Sydney, Australia, 2012-09-24 - Australian designed Ribs Benches have been selected for the world renowned foyers of the Sydney Opera House. Designed by Stefan Lie and produced by Australian company DesignByThem, the Ribs Bench is part of a growing collection of products by Australian designers. Interior design studio, Luchetti Krelle, was contracted to reinvigorate the foyers and selected the Ribs Benches as a design solution for the space.

In 2011 Design By Them approached Lie with an offer to take over production of this exceptional example of Australian design.

"I was delighted when DesignByThem sought a license to produce Ribs. They’re producing them to a wonderful standard, which is demonstrated by the fact that Ribs is featured in the Opera House;" says Stefan.
"It is a huge honour to produce The Ribs Bench with Stefan. He is such an inspiring designer and we're really excited to work with other great Australian designers in the future." Sarah Gibson

The Ribs Bench is made using FSC certified steam-bent hardwood. The curved, fluid forms are achieved with the use of an adjustable aluminium spine.
Founded in 2006 by Nicholas Karlovasitis and Sarah Gibson, DesignByThem continues to expand their collection and promote Australian design overseas.
