Sydney, NSW

Bernabeifreeman was formed in 2002 by Kelly Freeman and Rina Bernabei. Their range of lighting and furniture is regarded for its intricate perforated patterns and has been widely exhibited at renowned design fairs such as Salone di Mobile and The Milan Triennale.

Bernabeifreeman have won numerous design awards, including IDEA awards for product design and the Bombay Sapphire Design Discovery Award.

Rina and Kelly are rather obsessed with decoration, the domestic interior and the factory. They combine these three obsessions to create beautiful designs from perforated metal. Their aim is to capture a memory or emotion of decorative surfaces from their domestic past. They then use modern manufacturing methods to make it accessible to people through their products.
