Mornington Peninsula based husband and wife team Mark and Emma Cleine are the clever duo behind furniture brand Industria X. Together, they create a growing range of robust, functional furniture pieces in great contemporary colours and finishes, all made in Victoria.
The last twelve months have been seriously busy for Emma and Mark. Since we last featured them, they have designed and built furniture for a school, chairs for Melbourne airport and numerous chairs and tables for restaurants and cafes across Australia. They’ve also picked up a number of great new retail stockists in Melbourne, Sydney and Newcastle.
This year, Emma and Mark have also expanded their range of painted and powder coated surfaces, and added new chairs and stools to the collection. We especially LOVE their brand new artist’ series Highbar Stools, adorned with artwork by Emma (who creates limited edition prints under her other business name, Lumiere Art & co.) and two vibrant, painterly designs (‘Cool’ and ‘Warm’) by Newcastle artist Annie Everingham.
Mark and Emma are big believers in ‘slow’ furniture and homewares, and are passionate about local manufacturing. All Industria X furniture is still made from start to finish in their workshop in Hastings, VIC.
Mark and Emma will showcase their latest pieces this week at Den Fair in Melbourne (2nd – 4th June). In Sydney, they are stocked at Koskela. They’re on the hunt for a new Melbourne showroom in the Fitzroy / Richmond area (keep your eyes peeled!). Until then, you can find them at Factory 2, 7-9 Lyall Street, Hastings.
