Studio Onethirty is a hub of bespoke fabric, furniture and furnishings based in Sydney. Created by Sarah Kalidis in 2016, Studio Onethirty is the result of a lifetime passion for design and all things handmade. Having studied interior design and with 10 years working as an architectural consultant, the birth of her daughter in 2015 was the ember for a new beginning and a change of scenery.
“My aesthetic is bold and playful, and I love to draw representations of the natural environment in my textiles”. Being an art enthusiast and artist has certainly played a role in conceptualising Sarah’s designs. Each one of Sarah’s textile designs are based on her original drawings. “I love watching the transition from pencil to paper, through to upholstery fabric for furniture”. Composition plays a very important part in the production process, and once a textile design has been established, form and colour of the framework is almost a natural progression.
The result is a playful mix of Australian made products that are influenced by colours and textures in nature.
