Showcasing A.C.V. Studio, Ruth Allen, and Jonathan Ben-Tovim
Lights Out celebrates three Victorian designer makers exploring their work in contemporary lighting through their choices in material and form. Anna Varendorff, Jonathon Ben-Tovim and Ruth Allen represent three different practices, each however, has a strong material understanding and uses investigative practices to develop their work.
A.C.V studio is the project of artist Anna Varendorff. Formally trained as a metalsmith Anna handmakes limited edition objects working primarily with brass.
Ruth Allen is a Melbourne based multi-media artist primarily working with glass, light and kinetics.
Jonathan Ben-Tovim designs range from lights to furniture, all handmade to order. His creative approach explores a variety of materials and processes whilst not compromising on how design should fit into people’s lives.
