The August Collection, designed by Gibson Karlo, is an exploration of intersecting volumes and articulated geometries. An exercise in restraint, the design balances a minimal form with emphasised junctions to create a distinct, bold and inviting collection of armchairs and lounges.

Adaptable & Australian Made

Compact and versatile, August is aesthetically adaptable to a range of spaces. Dress up or dress down, the collection is available in a wide range of fabrics and leathers with or without decorative stitching.

"A fundamental part of the design is to highlight and exaggerate how the aesthetic and any decorative elements are driven by the function of its assembly and construction. Rather than having the seat and backrest simply end or integrate into the sides, we extended it beyond the arms to emphasise the block-like forms that initially captured us." - Nicholas Karlovasitis & Sarah Gibson.

Strength & Hidden Comfort

August utilises sustainably sourced FSC framing and steel supports encased in low VOC GECA certified commercial grade foam. This is coupled with upholstery webbing to retain its shape and comfort.
