Images of Maio Motoko’s works do not do them justice, these exquisite screens comprised of materials like cloth, foils and acrylic paints rely on the transient nature of Light, Shadow & Shape to complete the works. The philosophy around Maio’s work is that all things are ephemeral, transforming constantly, never only one thing.

Her panelled folding screens embody this quality in that they appear as a flat surface while simultaneously creating a three dimensional form that is evolving constantly, transforming itself and the space around it. Lesley Kehoe Galleries exhibits Maio Motoko’s work permanently along with many other japanese artworks in a range of different mediums including screens, metalwork, glass and ceramics.

Visit their Gallery at Ground Floor, 101 Collins St to experience the works for yourself.



Currently on display in our Collingwood Studio we have some of George Harper of Tide Designs newest furniture pieces.

George Harper’s designs encompass a simple, contemporary style with an influence of Scandinavian Design from the 1950′s which gives them a unique edge. The Founder of Tide Design strives to design timeless pieces that embody elegance and simplicity, “but only time will be the judge of that” he says. He mentions that “sometimes inspiration comes from things that happen by accident – an irregular shaped off-cut” or an appealing line or form, this is definitely evident in his innovative designs.

George’s approach to design shows that he has a passion for it, which is unmistakeable in his pieces such as the Lyssna Round Dining Table, Yo Dining Chair, La Corona & La Paz Side Tables and Entertainment Unit which are on display in our studio. Whilst all these pieces have their own unique personality, they all work together so well.

Also shown in this image is some great wallpaper supplied by Instyle and the George Nelson Pendant Light from Luke Design.

Please feel free to drop by our studio to see these designs up close…

Here at Eades and Bergman we get the chance to work on a lot of interesting and unique projects that are changing the way design is viewed today. For Instance the Islington Silos have proven to be an intriguing project to work on taking into consideration its unique shape and rich history in Melbourne’s expanding skyline.

First built in 1878 by Thomas Hood, The Silos became one of Victoria’s local breweries and one of Collingwood’s earliest and most successful enterprises. As a whole it represented an early phase of industrial development in the area.

Kellie Gollings images of the James Hood & Co Silos Site before construction started shows a great contrast to how they will evolve over the coming months into an apartment complex.

The Silos are a classic example of how we can preserve Melbourne’s historical landmarks by restoring them and allowing them to evolve with this ever- changing city.

The architects for the Islington Silos project have respected the historical integrity of the Silos with limited embellishment to the exterior, while we at Eades and Bergman have taken the opportunity to reflect the Silos urban surroundings throughout their interiors, rendering this complex into a classic example of how well the old and the new can work together.
