Source some strikingly vibrant pieces for your home from TUB
Blending retro sensibilities with innovate design touches, TUB sources some of the most interesting home wares from around the world, bringing them to Australia and introducing quirky design new markets.
In the world of home wares, there is a fine line between charm and kitsch. A creative-minded business is aiming to remove the distinction between high and low design elements without falling into common pitfalls of cheesy tropes and gaudy exhibitionism. TUB is an online-store based in Sydney that sources second-hand products from notable designers, normally from collections released many decades prior. TUB sources wares that catch the eye with a combination of colour palette, texture and material, with a distinct focus on goods that offer a representation or interpretation of things from the natural world.
A quick browse of TUB’s online store will show a wide range of eclectic wares sourced from around the globe. The latest pieces are from designers Ettore Sottass and Marco Zanini (produced by Japanese company MaruTomi) – founding members of the Memphis design group and renowned designers individually. Other notable products include the cantaloupe bowl by Ed Langbein and a stylish Euclid jug by Michael Graves. Click over to TUB’s online store for a look at the full range, which includes Romanian fridge magnets, Jackson China dishes, toucan lamps, mugs, marble desk organisers and many more vibrant pieces.
