Tucked away in Seddon is one of Melbourne’s most enigmatic design brands, LifeSpaceJourney. Launched in October 2010, it has been making ripples in the wider design community ever since, with its range of unique furnishings and bespoke objects, tables, seating and lighting.
“The essence of LifeSpaceJourney is in our own small way to push back against mass consumerism,” explains Justin Lamont, who established the brand with his brother Glenn. “We try as hard as we can to create unique products. The idea is that every piece is highly functional yet somehow curious and interesting as an object in its own right. It’s about capturing the essence of what a timeless piece is.”
From the unconventional typography or shuttlecock stools, to the dining setting with hand-spun metal tops, LifeSpaceJourney’s range is defined by simple lines and streamlined silhouettes. A background in art and sculpture clearly informs the direction in which the Lamont brothers travel. Passionate about sustainability and a return to local relationships, LifeSpaceJourney’s designs incorporate timber and recycled materials sourced from local suppliers. They also work with local industries to handcraft their range.
And, remember if you can’t quite find what you’re after; LifeSpaceJourney creates custom designs.
