The new DL Collection is the first interdisciplinary collaboration for DesignByThem, merging fashion and industrial design principles.‎ Referencing the iconic Bauhaus slung leather furniture typology and taking inspiration from Dion Lee’s signature weaving techniques, the DL Lounge Chair and Bench combine organic materials and angular silhouettes with the use of Italian saddle leather tensioned over a steel frame.‎ DL Collection by DesignByThem x Dion Lee

On show at Viafarini Studio within a secluded Milanese courtyard were over thirty signature DesignByThem pieces. Showcased designers included Stefan Lie, Tom Fereday, Trent Jansen, Seaton Mckeon, Jon Goulder, Daniel Tucker, Marcel Sigel, Nikolai Kotlarczyk, Elliot Bastianon, Dion Lee, Sarah Gibson and Nicholas Karlovasitis.

The exhibition demonstrated the eclectic and always contemporary take of the designers involved. The potential of each piece to make a confident statement in a space was highlighted through the location’s minimalist setting. At the same time, the Australian designers’ creations dialogued creatively with each other and the space.
