Australian label Dinosaur Designs was founded in 1985 by Louise Olsen and Stephen Ormandy who, after meeting at art school, began selling their jewellery designs at Sydney’s Paddington Markets. Propelled by a philosophy of colour and form, they expanded into homeware in 1995, working with glass, sterling silver and resin. Today, the duo works from their Strawberry Hills studio, where each piece is handmade for a unique finish using a patented resin technique.
Dinosaur Designs have released three collections with Designer Rugs over the past two decades, each featuring playful compositions of organic shapes and bold colour combinations, explored through textural finishes. With bold and punchy colour-blocked designs, the designs play with rhythms in line, shape, colour and tone.
