Furniture & Lighting Design
Ultimo, NSW, Australia
Leigh Johnson and Aaron Zorzo are the founders of Catapult Design, and lead designers for all products in their signature range. As part of their commitment to delivering beautiful yet functional pieces at affordable prices and with short lead times, they were driven to create their stylish and timeless range of furniture.
Both Leigh and Aaron have a long history of working in the furniture and styling industries, which make them perfectly suited to creating pieces that combine comfort and practicality with an eye-catching aesthetic. Their long relationships with a range of clients keep their fingers on the pulse of what is truly needed in the marketplace.
The Catapult range of products merges the most luscious of finishes with environmentally friendly elements wherever possible, evidenced in the shell of the Hunter range of armchairs, which are made out of recycled e-waste.
In the creation of their products, they collaborate with Australian designers such as Cath Ertler, and all pieces are manufactured locally. In keeping with the broad Catapult philosophy, support for Australian design and manufacture is complemented by the very best in international design—as seen through their collaboration with Corium leather, bringing a stunning range of award-winning German leathers into the catalogue for use in any upholstered items.
Catapult 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. Their products can also be viewed at the Catapult Design showroom located in Pyrmont, Sydney.
