Good design is more than just visual aesthetics. It is the way we create spaces and use objects in everyday life.

Our design philosophy encompasses lifestyle aspirations from a modern interpretation of traditional values, including art and culture.

We create spaces through human connection - interpreting people’s experiences and desires, then elaborating on these notions to create authentic and tangible spaces.

Through direct collaboration with traditional handicraft people, Concept Black will create bespoke interior design elements such as art / feature installations and light fittings using traditional techniques that were handed down through generations. We value this unique skill and human connection, creating a grounded approach which we carry through to our designs.
Natural stone is one of the widely used building materials with great character, longevity and performance. There is now greater access, better quality control and consistency for commercial applications. Concept Black will work with a natural stone material palette and collaborate with local stonemasons to introduce traditional stone art / stone making into the Australian context, connecting our clients to a rich cultural background.
