Furniture & Lighting Design
Fawkner, VIC, Australia
Ben-Tovim Design was founded by Jonathan Ben-Tovim in 2011 as an industrial design consultancy with an in-house range of lighting and furniture.
Jonathan Ben-Tovim established BT-D after spending a number of years working for Goodwin Hartshorn in London and Charlwood in Melbourne, working with clients such as Bowers & Wilkins, Joseph Joseph and Breville UK.
Jonathan Ben-Tovim was born in Zimbabwe, grew up and studied industrial design in Adelaide and then moved to Holland to complete a masters at the renowned Design Academy Eindhoven. This was followed by several years of working as a designer in London, until 2010 when Jonathan finally settled in Melbourne, Australia.
Each Ben-Tovim design product is assembled by hand in their Fawkner studio. B-TD looks to source as many parts and materials from local suppliers as possible. Their products are all made to order in small batches, allowing customization and collaboration.
Ben-Tovim Design’s locally designed and made products can be purchased on The Local Project’s Marketplace which showcases and promotes the very best in local Australian furniture and product design. Ben-Tovim Design’s products can also be viewed at the Catapult Design showroom located in Pyrmont, Sydney.
