Industria X creates cool, functional and stylish furniture

Mark and Emma Cleine took over Industria X in 2014, bringing their design an art experience to the brand that has been creating furniture since 1999. With an eye for aesthetically pleasing style and functional construction, Industria X has set tongues wagging with its range of home wares and furniture pieces. The industrial-inspired designs are made in Industria X’s workshop on the Mornington Peninsula in Victoria, with materials largely sourced from Australian manufacturers on the basis of environmental merit. Industria X separates its work into two sections – home wares and furniture. Small-scale home wares such as lampshades, trays and LPG vessels are available, while larger items such as tables, benches, chairs, trolleys and palette beds can be made to order. Head to the Industria X website to have a closer look at its wares, or see its handiwork in person at Communa Cantina. more
