Background

Alex and Dominic met while studying industrial design at UTS. The formation of Evie Group began as a hands on collaboration of the two designers looking to make their own products. The first homewares range caught the attention of Marc Newson and awarded Alex the Qantas SOYA product design in 2010, coupled with an internship in his London studio. Since then, the Evie product collection in continually growing and includes a range of accessories, furniture and their award winning lighting range Spun which features as an innovative product in the Shanghai Museum of Glass’ permanent collection.



Our design approach goes hand in hand with our signature style of sophisticated simplicity, to create high quality products for everyday use. All designs are carefully considered using materials fit for purpose to ensure users enjoy and hold onto our pieces for years to come.
