About Keith Melbourne

Keith Melbourne

Keith Melbourne’s path toward furniture and product design is far from typical. Having begun his career in aero-nautical engineering, Keith Melbourne spent over a decade developing advanced engine and control system technology within the aeronautic and automotive industry. After deciding to pursue the more creative side of the industry, Melbourne made the decision to study design in Perth, Western Australia, where he emerged in 2004 with a whole host of ideas and a thirst for furniture design. Melbourne joined the Stylecraft suite of brands in 2012 with the launch of the Blue Lounging collection and the Cell, Lamina and Pier Tables. Believing strongly in the importance of the relationship between designer and the manufacturer, Melbourne enjoys skilled craftspeople, leading to a close interaction that in turn results in the high quality and efficient manufacturing processes that characterise his work. Keith Melbourne product ranges now include flexible, modular furniture ranges well suited to commercial workplace and education environments, with the launch of an exciting new range to come in 2019.
