It’s time to plan your trip to the Australian International Furniture Fair (AIFF) & Decor + Design, 13 – 16 July at Melbourne Exhibition Centre. A must-see this year is the Gus* Modern at Stand F42. Not only will it host an inspirational collection of sustainable furniture…you’ll also have the chance to meet Australian design icon Jamie Durie (right).
Gus* Modern is exclusively distributed in the Pacific region by M + Co Living, who exhibited for the first time in 2022 and were a hit with visitors thanks to their stylish and versatile collections. The Gus* Modern collection ties in perfectly with the 2023 event’s focus on sustainability, aligning with features such as the 2023 Green Design Hub.
Star Attractions: Jamie Durie and Stylish Design In the Spotlight at Gus* Modern
International award-winning designer and author Jamie Durie, the new Gus* Modern ambassador, will be at the Gus* Modern stand on Friday 14th and Saturday 15th of July. He will also be joining the panel for the Future Ready Networking Event at 2pm on Saturday 15th July, chatting with TV Design Personality James Treble and sustainability expert Karie Soehardi, curator of the 2023 Green Design Hub. Visitors can reserve a ticket during registration.
Jamie’s collaboration reflects the growing strength of the range. Gus* Modern has had an exciting past year, expanding to new stockists across Australia every month.
This partnership will see the release of a new Durie x Gus* modern sustainable collection later this year. This will be featured in Jamie’s newest TV show and in his sustainable luxury retreat hotels ‘Opulus’, being built across Australia.
Where Style Meets Sustainability
The Gus* Modern collection is an eclectic mix of elegant and industrial design styles, with a focus on sustainable production. The design aesthetic is rooted in the simplicity of everyday objects, combining great design and practical purpose in a more environmentally friendly way. We particularly love the Gus* Mix Modular in Vegan AppleSkin Leather, the Nexus Modular Collection and the Arcade Bar Cart pictured in this article, all of which have been popular pieces for the brand.
The Gus* Modern collection also features four leading sustainable technologies;
- PET cushion fill – This synthetic material is created through a process that benefits the environment by diverting plastic bottles away from landfills, waterways and oceans.
- Vegan AppleSkin™ Leather – A modern, eco-friendly leather alternative made from recycled fruit fiber that retains the classic aesthetic of natural leather.
- FSC®-Certified wood – Our forests provide clean water, purify the air, maintain biodiversity, provide habitat for species, and play a central role in reducing the impacts of climate change. When managed responsibly, forests are also a source of renewable and recyclable products such as lumber, furniture, and paper.
- 0% VOC certified wood finish – An all‐natural, environmentally friendly product
