Since 2012, Dessein Furniture has specialised in the design, production and retail of original Australian-designed furniture for architects, designers and design-conscious customers. Staying true to our Australian identity, our functional, modern designs are reflective of Australia’s unique culture, lifestyle and landscape.
We are passionate about supporting local design. Collaborating with some of Australia’s most talented designers, both established and emerging, Dessein produces furniture pieces, lighting and accessories that are youthful in their sophistication and versatile in application.
We believe design should be enduring and affordable. We make considered and conscientious choices sourcing materials and resources readily available in our geographic region. It allows us to reward our customers with cost savings while reducing waste and minimising environmental impacts.
Authenticity and accessibility continue to live at the heart of what we do, so our designs remain relevant to a wide range of uses and applications.
Michele's vision in establishing Dessein was to create Australian designed furniture which is affordable, original and sustainable. Dessein was launched in 2012 by Michele with a vision to facilitate new opportunities for Australian designers.
But the dream began much earlier thanks to a design enriched childhood with hours spent in her father’s architecture studio. A mixed, rich cultural heritage also played its part as Michele crossed the globe from Malaysia to Australia, London and finally Melbourne where Dessein Furniture took form in earnest.
Michele understands the value between everyday life and design. Since her award winning student days she has consistently worked towards crafting better living through design. At the helm of Dessein, she enjoys the opportunity to push herself each day and be the master of her own destiny.
