Passion and Locality

In the last few decades, we’ve seen Australia’s history of design trends explore the influence and integration of overseas trends into our nation’s creative narrative. Notes of European design have slowly inspired the way in which we see, create and experience our spaces. 

Combined with the revolutionary talents in local craftsmanship and manufacturing in Australia, P4 continues its tradition and further seeks to change the pace of the design game – pushing local Australian production, engineering and craftsmanship to new heights.

P4 values premium-quality production and a meticulous eye for materiality, form and detail. The precision and beauty of our European brands allow us to bring their designs over to Australian shores – putting a touch of local knowledge and craft into the materiality, assembly and design process. 

As a business that recognises the beauty in the art form of locally manufactured products, we celebrate locality with a continued focus on partnering with our European brands to allow local stock holding, assembly, finishing and upholstery and in many cases complete 100% manufacture in Australia.  We are writing our own design narrative that’s personal, meaningful and close to home. 

Our commitment to localising the manufacture of as many products as possible continues to make us proud to be an Australian-owned and run business. We're dedicated to supporting our Australian community of artisans that make us the creative trailblazers that we strive to be. 

By collaborating with brands from around the globe, we are able to showcase the best of our craft within our local talents, while paying homage to our European brands’ exquisite designers and designs.

In this piece, we explore the names, products and brands that have graced P4 throughout the years and their passion and dedication to functional and versatile design with Australian manufacturing.

Blå Station

Originating in Sweden since 1986, Bla Station was the brainchild of furniture designer, Börge Lindau. Passionate about showing the world beautiful production furniture, Lindau’s desire was fueled by products that he himself liked and which, in his mind, deserved a place in the market. 

Driven by curiosity, Blå Station is known to challenge the unexpected and thrive with constant discovery. This is a brand that stays true to who they are; where they’ve come from; and the passion of developing new shapes, functions, materials and refreshing industrial production processes. For Blå Station, furniture should inspire us to think differently and see the beauty of the interiors that surround us – dissecting how things come together and how they work as one.

Many BOB configurations are locally upholstered by P4 and assembled in Australia allowing for the flexibility to offer local upholstery specification of approved fabrics, vinyls and leathers.

True is a young, vibrant and future-thinking design house – two young men growing up and always looking to change the pace of the design game. The term “modern” to them dictates how they experience everyday; constantly going beyond fashion and investing in individuality rather than conforming to what’s “trendy” or conventional. Dedicated to creating and changing the future, True is a company that acknowledges the past and present, with an eye for the future and the spaces of tomorrow. 

It is no secret that this powerhouse is groundbreaking, with a touch of simplistic pragmatism and beautiful local manufacturing for the Australian design market.

P4 partnered with True several years ago with a joint vision of offering local assembly and upholstery under licence of True's collection in Australia.  This has allowed local lead-times and specification of upholstery in approved local fabrics, vinyls and leathers.
