BORR designs and creates sharp looking homeware pieces. The current range of BORR products are inspired by lab glassware. The range plays with the form and function of lab equipment, by producing edgy designs for the home or office.
The mixture of the cold and sterile lab equipment, combined with the warmth of kiln dried Australian timber and the sharp, crisp lines of steel brackets, completely re-imagines the look and use of the science world. The contrasting materials used in BORR’s variety of interior designs merges charm, originality and sophistication.
BORR continues to design and develop new and innovative, Australian handmade products that captivate the imagination. The brands lead designer is forever testing the boundaries of functional art in an effort to regularly release new pieces.
Within its first few months of releasing ‘the Bunsen’, BORR has built a great rapport with consumers, who have appreciated the brands quality products, consistency, quick delivery and timely communication with customers.
DESIGNED + MADE IN
Where do you get your inspiration?
"My parents always encouraged me along the path of creativity. Recently I have had a vision of merging my experiences, hobbies and passions into a range of products. This has excited me and opened my imagination by changing the way I look at the functionality of every day things."
What has been your favourite piece and why?
"The Bunsen designer oil burner/vase. It was designed as a gift for my family as it was through their encouragement that I started selling them through Etsy. It has opened me to the possibilities of my own product range."
What is your favourite material to work with?
"Being a carpenter by trade, I would have to say Australian hardwood is my favorite material to work with. It gives an extra depth to my designs, and every piece has its own grain and character. I select pieces to ultimately feature the material at its best."
If you were to expand your product range to something entirely different, what would it be?
"I would like to create larger pieces, such as furniture and one of a kind designs and sculptural, functional art. I would feel that I’ve truly made my dreams come true if I had the freedom to design and create one of a kind functional works of art."
Describe your products in three words...
"Edgy. Functional. Balanced."
