1. The replica damages the industry
Thonet Australia launched in Melbourne in 1979. More than 30 years on, the design establishment still turn to Thonet for contemporary and classic European product at affordable prices.
Having realised at 18 that following his dream to be a guitarist in a rock band might be "a bit tricky", Tim Wallace chose instead to pursue a slightly steadier career in design.
Authentic design. Not fakes.
As Australians we have every reason to be proud of our vibrant arts and design community. Sadly, our Australian furniture designers are under threat due to imported counterfeit copies of their furniture, lighting and homeware designs. As consumers we are damaging our local industry when we treat shoddy ‘replica’ copies of iconic furniture as disposable decorating items destined for landfill.
