Indesignlive features Pernod Ricard

Pernod Ricard is a project that blurred the boundaries between hospitality and workplace, achieved through the translation of their brand into a three-dimensional space and careful attention to detail and finishes. It has just been featured over at Indesignlive, where our Co-Founder and Creative Director Monika Branagan was interviewed about the project. Mon talks about how we approached the brief and some of the collaborative relationships that brought it to life. You can read all about it here.

Pernod Ricard at Barangaroo, Sydney

Our recently completed workplace for luxury French distilled beverage and wine company Pernod Ricard has been gathering attention and was recently published over at Office Snapshots and OfficeLovin. The new workplace is housed within Tower 1 at Sydney’s Barangaroo precinct and the brief was to reflect the premium nature of their brands through sophisticated finishes and refined detailing. We translated their tagline ‘Moments of Conviviality’ into the environment by ensuring that all spaces were inviting and softened using greenery and sumptuous upholstery throughout the workplace, which takes an agile, neighbourhood approach. Check it out at Office SnapshotsOfficeLovin or over on our project page.


Sushi Canteen features in The Age


Our Sushi Canteen project was featured in Melbourne’s The Age newspaper on Saturday in an article on the IDEA awards ‘hot-bed’ hospitality entries and declared “Sydney’s sushi take-away that’s impossible to ignore“. Here’s a little extract:

“… to the pop-art colour of Sydney’s George St Sydney Sushi Canteen, the contenders are pushing paradigms in all directions. The Bold Collective was asked to reference the colour, attitude and craziness of Tokyo’s Harajuku district in the “grab and go” food outlet and let a graphic designer and street artist join their endeavour to fantastic effort.”

Our concept for Sushi Canteen extended all the way through to the uniforms of the staff –  you can read more about it here.


What does the future workplace look like?


Architecture & Design have just published an article on the future of workpace design and  our PetSure project has been included in the review of progressive Australian projects that provide a glimpse into where workplaces of the future are headed. Here’s a brief extract;

“Physical and mental wellbeing should not be treated separately in workplace design, but rather designed for as part of a singular concept. In the same way that non-physical design elements such as light and air improve the health of a building’s human occupants, so too do the more tangible and traversable elements that are expressed with an office’s floorplan and integrated technologies.

Whether it’s as simple as shower facilities to accommodate staff members who cycle to work, or flexible floorplans that encourage movement between workspaces, here are three home-grown commercial projects that lay out a roadmap for agitating traditional workplace typologies.”

PetSure has certainly struck a chord around the world as more people consider the positive effects on pets in the workplace and as this article mentions, the effects a pet owners work might have on their furry companions. You can read it here.

2 x Silver in the Sydney Design Awards!


We’re excited to announce that not one but two of our projects won silver in the 2017 Sydney Design Awards. Enero, a media project that manipulates ideas of light/dark, black/white, private/open and is housed in one of Pyrmont’s heritage listed woolsheds was awarded silver in the Corporate Commercial category. Whilst in the Hospitality Casual category our graphic and playful Harajuku inspired Sushi Canteen in Sydney’s Town Hall Station took out the same honour.

We’d like to thank you for supporting us and for making your vote count. It’s an honour to have these two projects recognised as they’re great representations of what The Bold Collective is all about: a multi-disciplinary approach to interiors that pushes the limits of what design can achieve.
