Brisbane designer puts the “oo” into Google


 In the heart of Silicon Valley between the G and the GLE of one of the world’s most powerful brands Google, sits some cheery ‘O’ shaped stools designed in Australia by Brisbane designer Jason Bird. The primary coloured ‘O’ shaped stools which are part of Bird’s ‘Tingle’ range were requested by the internet giant to be both office seating and themed conference furniture for a series of events around the globe. 

Jason Bird, a brisbane-based industrial designer and his furniture design group Luxxbox, secured the deal while on a trip to California where he returned home with a contract to fit out a selection of Google's offices and custom events globally. 

Mr Bird said “The concept came about after designing some brightly coloured tables that I thought would look cool as the ‘O’s in Google and passing them onto one of my US design contacts. Luckily for us, they loved it”. 

The dream deal included supplying custom Tingles’ and ‘Chunks’ for a selection of boutique Google events in addition to providing hundreds of custom Tingles and Tingle Tables for their annual IO event in San Fransisco . 

The developing arrangement with Google will see Luxxbox work on an internal design project and a custom seating solution for their new New York offices. Prototypes have already been created in the Californian manufacturing department and shipped to New York for the approval process. 

Increasing international demand for Luxxbox creations has seen the Brisbane born company establish a US manufacturing department in California enabling their products to now be shipped across America. Other US design retailers such as Allmodern and Module-R based in New York also stock various Luxxbox designs. 

 The international design community can see Jason’s latest collection on show at the upcoming ‘Dwell on Design Show’ in Los Angeles in late June 2012. 
 Locally, the Brisbane’s Indesign Live event on Saturday May 26th will see Luxxbox reveal their most recent range - CALCIUM’
