Adam Cornish


Adam Cornish is a multidisciplinary designer working from his independent design studio in Melbourne Australia. Adam aims to create honest accessible products developed through research and by allowing products to find their natural expression. By combining strong, simple design solutions with a palette of natural tactile materials Adam strives to create individual products with visual and physical longevity.

“I am very interested in nature and our natural environment. When you look at nature you see how all the different organisms have evolved and adapted to suit their environments. I like to think of design in a similar manner. “If you look at your work as merely a rung on a ladder, slowly steering products in a certain direction, hopefully simplifying and improving them as we go.” Adam Cornish


Response to COMMUNITY

During the Melbourne lockdowns last year the idea of Community became more important than ever. The old saying you don’t know what you have until it’s gone speaks volumes in this situation. Strangely during these months we were able to take things slower and collaborate with people in different ways. One such collaboration was producing our Wooden Hammock design from solid timbers with a friend and independent maker. It seems only fitting to be able to show this collaboration in the Alt Material Community exhibition.
