Located in Brisbane, Australia, Snack On is the collective practice of Björn Rust and Surya Graf. Formed to explore the application of materials and processes, experimental and established, to our independently fabricated products.
Motivated by the freedom and simplicity of a web-based design consultancy, Snack On allows us to pursue a more irreverent approach to product development than our bread and butter projects. We favour guerrilla advertising, pop-up distribution and pufferfish principles.
The Labware series takes the iconic forms of scientific lab equipment and places them into a domestic context. Intended to be used as a water carafe and glasses set, the flask can also be used as a vase.
Both the flask (H210mm x W130mm) and the beakers (H90mm x W70mm) are individually hand cast in ceramic, and are available with either a gloss white or gloss black finish.
Back in 2009 Surya produced a limited run of five Labware carafes with an experimental mercury finish. For the first time, this very run will be available for purchase from Artisan during the Capital Growth exhibition in which we are participating.
If you find yourself in Tokyo for design week, please visit us at PLSMIS to see our latest creations, along with those of the Quench collective. The space is open every day from 11am-7pm until the 3rd.
This week we will be opening the first of two exhibitions the Quench Collective is running this year. Along with four of our partners in design, we are showing ten new pieces during Unlimited at the State Libary of Queensland. We hope to see you there.
Man & Machine is a free, independently published zine intended to be an observation of the diversity present in a community surrounding a common artefact. Every user group has a stereotype, Man & Machine aims to lift that stereotype one artefact at a time focusing on man behind the machine.
We put a little something together to remind you of us over the holidays. The Ohnine Mixtape represents a collection of tracks from some of our favourite albums this year. Not necessarily the best from each, but rather those we felt fit.
You can now visit us in person, we will almost always have something interesting to show you. Studio 13 is home to designer David Shaw and Street & Garden Furniture Co. as well as our own establishment.
