Led by designer, Anne-Claire Petre, acp atelier is a Melbourne-based furniture design practice. Over a decade in the design industry and studies in industrial and furniture design across France and Scotland enabled Anne-Claire to develop a deep understanding of good design, materials and processes. After completing an associates program at JamFactory, Adelaide, Anne-Claire relocated to Melbourne to work for design and architecture firms. After taking the leap to found her own furniture studio, Anne-Claire’s focus is on working closely with local manufacturers and designing products which are built to last. “To me, the idea is that we should surround ourselves with objects we really love and respect.” Upholding the studio’s principles of practicality, integrity, clean aesthetics and simplicity, the Sedis collection is acp atelier’s first collaboration with Stylecraft. Sedis balances sculptural curves with strong, minimalist lines informed by Art Deco architecture and is a welcome addition to Stylecraft's suite of Australian designed and manufactured seating.
