Joining forces, two Alice Springs workshops have achieved an outstanding result – producing a set of stylish chairs that will feature in the Australian exhibit at this year's Venice Architecture Biennale. KIERAN FINNANE reports.
The first thing you notice on entering the studio-come-workshop is the wall display of shoemaker lasts. These are among the tools of trade for the first bespoke shoemaker in Alice Springs in 50 years, James B. Young, who with his partner, designer Elliat Rich, will launch their Elbowrkshp next week.
