The Key To Custom Furniture Success – Tracing One Artisan From Builder to Bespoke Designer

In a former life, one of Melbourne’s leading custom furniture designers, Durwin Lambe, worked on the docks in his family’s timber importing business . . . and so began his two great love affairs.

“The impossible we do straight away, miracles take a little longer!”.

Driven by a deep passion to unlock designs and desires that live in people’s minds, and bring those bespoke designs to life with his unique take on bespoke furniture making, Durwin Lambe openly shares his two great loves.
His first: to build and create beautiful and highly detailed products.
And his second: to work with like-minded design enthusiasts.
Having worked in the family timber importing business, Durwin went on to work with a range of builders, each with their own speciality, in order for him to expand his skills and broaden the variety of materials with which he worked.  He also further refined his design and building craft whilst building sets for blockbuster movies.
It was this experience working on movies such as the Matrix and one of the Star Wars franchise that really honed Durwin’s ability to translate beautiful, unique pieces from a 2-D drawing into a 3-D functional piece of furniture that not only looks amazing, but just as importantly, does what it was designed to do. This approach to the ‘buildability’ of a concept to creation is something that has become an integral part of why Durwin is in such high demand.
Durwin’s approach to complex design work can be summed up in his grandfather’s words, “The impossible we do straight away, miracles take a little longer!”.
These words have inspired Durwin to take on industrial furniture projects that are going to mean something to someone.  He believes the project needs to be a coming together of joint passion – from both the client and himself. Durwin believes passion is what makes the impossible, possible.
Durwin’s style, philosophy and approach to custom furniture is what sets him apart from other furniture makers. His skills can transcend from furniture to lighting to high end architectural projects, all of which he relishes.
Having worked on projects from 20 million dollar mansions to straw bale houses, he discovered they all have an ingredient in common, and it’s an ingredient of which his grandfather would be proud: the delivery is in the detail - in putting the care and thought into getting things done right.
Durwin explains this best: "I like to ask clients at the beginning what their favourite part of the house or detail will be, how they picture themselves using those special spaces. Then I set this as my end goal, otherwise you run the risk of forgetting the users throughout the bespoke design process.”
About Custom Industrial

Everything Custom Industrial creates is individual, using timeless craftsmanship.

Combining this with skills gained in the building and timber industries, a passion was fuelled for turning the unusual and unique into custom pieces of furniture and lighting that captured the feeling of those childhood memories.
