Dinosaur Designs 'Seed'

The 30-year creative partnership of Louise Olsen and Stephen Ormandy is celebrated in this exhibition of sculptural objects

Husband-and-wife team Louise Olsen and Stephen Ormandy have carved out an almost iconic presence in Australian design with their jewellery and homewares brand Dinosaur Designs. But the two started the venture when they were art school graduates, as a way of extending their practice. "We've always wanted to get back to being sculptors and artists again," says Olsen (who is indeed the daughter of famous Australian painter John Olsen).

This exhibition focuses on the sculptural and painterly aspect of their practice across the years. Highlights include an installation of colourful 'totem' poles, and a series of Olsen's 'moon tables' – all made from their material of choice, resin.
