Our Collab in table mode. Really looking

Our beautiful collaboration, 'form•fibre•future',

Will be shown in 16 April - 29 May 2019 at MiRa Gallery, Marysville during an.ti.quate's exhibition. If you are in the area, go and take a look, maybe take part in the workshop to create an ottoman of your own.

HABIO is feeling so honoured to have been invited by two inspiring textile artists to collaborate.









When exhibiting at AIFF 2018, Habio was approached separately by Kerri of an.ti.quate and Zetta Kanta if I was interested in collaborating. Of course I said YES! Immediately, I could see their very different aesthetics work together to create a beautiful story that OTTO would wear and therefore tell to the world. Visit the collaboration page to see more of what we got up to and our beautiful results.



OTTO will now be available as outdoor furniture.

Feeling very pleased, that with only very minor modifications, these coffee table/ottomans can be weather resistant. There are beautiful outdoor fabrics that are available to upholster OTTO to your needs that are sun resistant. We would recommend that they still be undercover but these are easily adaptable to the outdoor living that we in Australia are so lucky to enjoy! If you have any queries or need help sourcing fabrics, please feel free to contact habio.


OTTO was lucky enough to be featured in the Sunday Age 'M' magazine recently in the 'I found this great thing' column.


AIFF Loves Homemade

OTTO was launched at the Melbourne Decor + Design show in July 2018. The response was wonderful and am so looking forward to working with the wonderful interior designers and stylists who came to visit habio's stand.
