Locki is a Melbourne based furniture designer and 3D artist whose work spans both physical and digital mediums. Growing up in Sydney, they developed a love for furniture working as an upholsterer before studying Industrial Design at Design Centre Enmore, where they were awarded Student of the Year 2018. Locki's work re-interprets traditional forms and methods for a modern audience. Using few visible fixtures in their furniture construction, they are able to acheive clean silhouettes which are dramatic and playful in proportion. With a particular focus on minimal intervention and sustainable design practices, Locki believes that good design should intentionally and carefully walk the line between beauty and function.
Locki's photorealistic multimedia artworks blur the line between reality and imagination. These immersive, imagined environments allow the audience to experience something new and bizarre; realistic yet impossible. Their work often explores the melding of the constructed and natural worlds that has become a part of our daily lives, bringing artificial materials into the natural environment in an organic fashion and integrating these components with nature.
Our lived experience is flexible, open to playful transformation and wonder. My furniture and art allows the audience an escape, and encourages them to question the notions that govern our everyday life – physics, reason or logic.
