Lamington Drive is pleased to present our final show for 2016, ‘Nestling’, a group exhibition celebrating the launch of a collection of products for children’s nurseries of the same name. Nestling is the latest project from The Jacky Winter Group and Lamington Drive Editions – pieces designed to enchant both young and old. An ode to the nesting rituals of expecting parents preparing for their new arrival, the range comprises of carefully crafted and functional art objects to feather the nests of young hatchlings.

interlocking foam floor tiles
by Craig and karl

As one of the more ambitious projects to come out of nestling, international art and design duo Craig and Karl have designed a set of interlocking foam mat flooring tiles like none you’ve ever seen.

With a limited edition of prototype mats available here, we are now accepting pre-orders for the commercial run currently in progress due to ship in early 2017.

Each pack of matting contains an array of blue, yellow, black and white tiles that offer up a host of different pattern combinations within the 2x1m rectangular design. 

Comprised of toddler-safe EVA foam, the finished mat stands 2cm thick and will create a soft surface in any space. They’re extremely versatile, easy to assemble and clean – the perfect way to brighten up a playroom, or a quiet meditation and yoga space for adults.

As with previous Lamington Drive Editions such as The Colours Puzzles, early units sell out quite quickly, so we have opened up this pre-order to allow those who have expressed early personal and wholesale interest to claim their spot in the queue.

By producing objects to order and fulfilling needs as they arise we endeavour to make a shift away from the flood of mass produced nursery products and objects currently on the market. Indeed the project came about in response to typical nursery wares – the over-saturation of blues and pinks, poor quality or difficult to source locally designed and manufactured items.

Each artwork comes with a pair of beautiful custom Tasmanian Oak hanging bars designed and purpose built by United Measures for Nestling. The wood grain makes each hand-sanded, angle-faced bar unique. 

The top bar features a hanging wire of coated electrical wire available in four customisable colours – blue, red, yellow and white –  to complement the artwork.

Red spade connectors crimp the wire at each end and are integrated into the top of the bar, fixed from the reverse side through a thinner piece of timber that clamps the fabric and allows the artwork to sit flush against the wall. 

Embellishing the right side of the bottom bar is a Nestling wood branding, laser etched for a neat and textured finishing touch.

As children grow and their interests change, the fabric panel can be easily swapped out with new artwork.

Locally printed and sewn in Abbotsford, the panels are made of natural cotton twill, a durable, slightly textured fabric that's soft to the touch.

Scrolls are easy to transport or ship as gifts - all rolled up in one neat little package! All scrolls orders will come pre-assembled rolled and wrapped for protection within in a sturdy postal tube, shipping worldwide. 

While we want to provide a beautiful life for our children, we also realise that some children are living a life put on hold. In support of the emancipation of children in Australian-run detention centres, a percentage of the profits from Nestling will be donated to ChilOut (Children Out of Immigration Detention), an organisation that works towards releasing children from detention centres and putting legislative safeguards in place for future protection.
