STUDIO SPACE: LIKE BUTTER
For the latest instalment of Studio Space I visited the amazing Kensington, Melbourne workshop of Like Butter, a design and fabrication business owned and run by industrial designer Jem Selig Freeman and sculptor Laura Woodward. You've probably seen their work around town, much of it made from ply &/or steel - they make quirky bookshelves, distinctive crates, stools, tables and more.
When I met Jem and Laura in around 2008 they worked from the basement of the Younghusband Woolstores (where I once had a studio). For the last 14 months they've been in a huge, light-filled space at the front of the same building complex.
Jem says he spends about 60 hours a week there, which doesn't surprise me - he's often posting Instagram updates of his creations at all times of the day or night. And what does a dream workspace look like? According to Jem, it would be "bright white with bags of natural light and amazing dust extraction". In the meantime, they look pretty well settled in their current space. I hope you enjoy taking a look around.
