Paul Barbera + Broached Commissions

Shot over 6 months, Paul Barbera and his team followed Broached Commissions and it’s process to reinvent old designs.

In Paul’s words, “twelve new limited and open edition Recall objects by Broached Commissions continue a line of enquiry that attempts to convey the design industry’s wilful contribution to a world that is full of products and yet denuded of life.”

This debut exhibition of Broached Recall in Australia harnesses the precious historical veneer archive of Elton Group, dating back to the 1930’s. These precisely articulated objects for the home are the result of a two year development process that saw the Broached design team create three dimensional objects from a suite of pattern languages by John Warwicker. John’s work traced the history of modernism to its origins in the mid 19th C.
