Through a series of observations and experiments in lighting, LINEAR celebrates the potential and beauty of the pleating process in a contemporary context. Working with linen and timber, Coco Flip presents a collection of one-off light sculptures inspired by modernist architecture, the interface between materials, and ceremony.A short documentary-style film reveals Coco Flip’s collaborative approach to working alongside local makers; taking inspiration from their traditional methods of production. It delves into the discomfort of the creative process, the beauty in industry, and the importance of exploring the unknown.“Certainly for artists of all stripes, the unknown, the idea or the form or the tale that has not yet arrived, is what must be found. It is the job of artists to open doors and invite in prophesies, the unknown, the unfamiliar; it’s where their work comes from, although its arrival signals the beginning of the long disciplined process of making it their own.” ⁠— Rebecca Solnit, A Field Guide to Getting Lost


Coco Flip

Coco Flip is a furniture and lighting design studio working closely with local craftspeople and manufacturers to create playful products with depth of character. Established in 2010 by Kate Stokes and Haslett Grounds, Coco Flip offer a considered range that is produced in Melbourne as well as designing pieces for other brands such as Nau and New Volumes. Advocates of slow design, Kate and Haslett place a high value on time, community, and quality, aiming to create distinctive furniture and lighting for people who celebrate the good things in life. They are interested in the preservation of local industry and crafts, and strive to communicate the stories behind their products and the people who made them.

Sean Brickhill

Sean Brickhill is a designer/maker based in Melbourne (Naarm/Birraranga). Drawing inspiration from architecture, visual art and sculpture Sean aims to bring a fresh take on furniture design and functional art. He believes in form before function but knows not to neglect the importance function carries in design. He aims to create works that provide traditional function in enterprising and aesthetically engaging ways.

Antuong Nguyen

Antuong Nguyen is a filmmaker based in Melbourne (Naarm/Birraranga). He operates a commercial film practice, Silky Jazz Films, servicing commercial, cultural, and not-for-profit sectors. Antuong’s directional approach is informed by improvisation (hence, the name ‘Silky Jazz’ in honour to his favourite jazz tenor, Pharoah Sanders), verité, and speculative modes of visual communication.

His practice is engaged in non-hierarchical methods of collaboration; his transition from visual artist to filmmaker born from a desire to work within a more collective model of artmaking and storytelling. Antuong has had his artworks presented at ICA (London), ACMI, National Gallery of Victoria, Gertrude Contemporary, Westspace, and Bus Projects. He has lectured communication at RMIT University’s School of Fashion and has been a guest speaker at Melbourne International Film Festival, REMIX Summit, and City of Melbourne. His Silky Jazz Films clients include Netflix, Google, Nike, Adidas, Royal College of the Arts (London), University of Melbourne, Rising, Melbourne International Film Festival, MTC, and Melbourne Fashion Week.
