Furniture & Lighting Design
Bronte, NSW, Australia
Directed by Industrial Designer Coco Reynolds, Marz Designs specialises in commercial furniture, lighting, product design and interiors.
Enamoured with the design and architecture movements of the 50s and 60s, Coco focusses her energy on interpreting these works using her own contemporary aesthetic that favours natural materials and a love for simple, yet beautiful silhouettes.
Passionate about the making process, Reynolds invests in continuous experimentation finding joy in the manipulation of materials in a way that promotes craft practice in collaboration with industry.
Driven by a love of beautiful forms and the innate qualities of raw materials, Coco aims to create timeless and innovative designs, with functionality and quality being the primary focus. Having graduated from Industrial Design at the University of Canberra in 2007, Coco has a background in product design followed by training in woodworking at the Sturt School of wood.
Taking inspiration from the people she meets, travelling and new perspectives, Reynolds has developed into a versatile designer who isn’t afraid to try her hand at new things. Her work has found her in the top 10 finalists of the Launchpad competition in 2011, awarded the CAL Copyright Agency Grant 2012 and nominated as one of the Temple & Webster Emerging Designer Awards 2014.
