Ross Gardam™ products are hand-crafted in Melbourne, Australia, by local artisans and manufacturers with an unrivalled level of finish and expertise. The studio’s methodology combines innovative technology with traditional craft, resulting in products imbued with subtle historical and ritualistic references. This closeness to the maker and understanding of the material is central to the obsessive process of development involved in every Ross Gardam™ product.
