Furniture is a part of our everyday life in which some of us just take for granted.
How would you simply go on with your day is chairs weren’t around and tables are all just one size, but who is responsable for today’s designs?
With so many around we decided to take a look into one of our most talented designers Alexander Lotersztain,
How long have you been design for now?
For as long as I remember, ever since i was child, i liked tinkering and taking things apart, playing with Lego etc..Professionally for more than 15 years now..
What did you think of the design scene when starting out professionally and who inspired you most?
I first came face to face with the design scene in Tokyo, cool cats, great parties and full of creative people, liked it..Most of the inspiration came from people actually making it, doing what they are passionate about and making a living out of it.
Did you find it hard starting out and getting your work out there?
To be honest no, at that time i was young, probably slightly irresponsible and loved to travel, so was more about experiencing culture, travelling and meeting cool people…design was kind of the excuse!
Do you have a favorite material you like to work with?
I’m a material junkie, i think all real designers are. Materials, processes and technologies are what drives me, the ever learning curve.
So where can we go to get a piece from Derlot collection?
We do a lot of work in Australia, obviously is were my studio is based, a lot of our interior work is in Brisbane, cool bars and restaurants..
Internationally I have a lot of work in the public arena…my twig public furniture can be found, in plaza real in Madrid, Versaille in Paris, Rome and Dubai..our Derlot Editions range of furniture is distributed in Australia, NZ, Singapore, UAE and USA..
