THE WORK

The Drum 600 is one of a series of lighting products in the Axiom range, which also includes wall, floor and table lighting. The light shades are constructed using laser-cutting technology for both the timber veneers and metal brackets. The Drum 600 showcases the qualities of the Black Heart Sassafras through simple, pared design.

“We don’t like a lot of ornament, just let the timbers that we’ve got here in Tasmania do the talking, you don’t need to embellish them, they’re figured and colourful enough.”

THE DESIGNERS

Hutchinson and Whiting formed Axiom Furniture and Lighting in 1992. The clear contrasting landscape forms of Tasmania and its maritime heritage inspire their shared design ethos. Axiom’s distinctive clean lines and simplicity of design are the partnership’s hallmark. Their innovative furniture incorporates the latest manufacturing technologies with the careful hand selection of the finest timbers and veneers available.

Hutchinson and Whiting believe in the economic use of Tasmania’s unique timber resources.
