Back to work!

We have returned from our summer holiday heaven and we are back on board at Lump, although it feels like we had a little more holiday heaven than actual summer.

Nevertheless we are rested and rearing to go with some exciting new projects scheduled for 2014. A fresh sculpture in the garden is one way to really help revitalise your outdoor space.

From urban art to custom-designed sculptures, we are also happy to discuss your ongoing design needs with us – simply make an appointment to visit us in the studio or contact us to discuss your plans and project ideas.

Our innovative designers will work with you to create a distinctive decorative screen, sculpture or specific artwork that will help add a new sense of style to your home, business or space.

And don’t forget to catch up on our feel good story about our collaboration with RMIT’s AMP and our combined dedication to design and manufacturing in Australia.

The six-month collaborative project with RMIT involved a new program aimed at incorporating education, technology and manufacturing.

The brief was to design a public sculpture exploring familiar forms through future-focused technology and mean in conjunction with RMIT students, utilising the world-class teaching facilities and machinery at the university’s AMP (Advanced Manufacturing Precinct) and Lump’s manufacturing capacities.

The AMP is essentially a learning factory, with students gaining real-life workplace experience while understanding the needs of industry, product constraints and deadlines.

Chris met with program manager Michael Fuller to view the machinery at RMIT’s AMP before a team of students visited Lump Studio to help them understand how their design concepts would slot into the more technical parts of the project using Lump’s manufacturing capacities and processes.

The students were charged with coming up with a design using 3D CAD modelling software, which could then be wrapped on to the surface of the sculpture.

Once the sculpture was partially fabricated at Lump Studio, the final design was 3D laser cut into the piece using RMIT’S new world-class 3D Laser Processing Centre.

The resulting sculpture, Jacks, is based on the main playing component from the schoolyard game known as “Knuckles” or “Jacks”.  Measuring 1.5m x 1.5m, the sculpture is made from corten steel with a natural rusted finish.

By remaking the Jack in a modern form it was hoped to imbue a meaning of balance and positivity while remembering and connecting with an object from the past.

We were rapt with the outcome and are so proud to have played a part in helping build on the future of Australian manufacturing through education involving design, technology and manufacturing, while building on our own industry knowledge bank.

With many more exciting projects like this lined up for 2014 get on board with us and come and see our Lump Studio heat up as summer finally arrives in full force.

  • This sculpture we at Lump are calling “The Pavilion”  has finally left the Lump Studio for installation in its forever home. Watch this to see how we move the big ones. #sculpture  #privatecommission  #outdoorart  #modernsculpture  #lovewhatyoudo
  • Check the creation of the SodaStream Turtle step by step in the Lump Studio workshop. @dayziart carefully places the rubbish over the skeleton to form the shell and the skin of the turtle. ALL of the rubbish was collect by @dayziart from Aussie beaches. @sodastreamau commissioned this piece as part of #oceanofthefuture a VR display that aims to help us understand the impact our waste is having on our ocean and marine life.  We are thrilled to have been included in this project along with passionate ambassadors @sodastreamau  @plasticfreesophia @cleanupaustralia  @take3forthesea  @joelparko The display is on this week at Circular Quay in Sydney #bubblesfornow  #onebottleforlife  #stoptrashingwaves
  • The Turtle created by @dayziart is positioned on top of a pod which houses a VR experience #OceanOfTheFuture developed and launched by @sodastreamau  this week. The VR experience aims to help us understand how our waste is impacting our oceans and marine life.  The installation is at The Overseas Passenger Terminal at Circular Quay in Sydney. Take your kids, you will want to make difference too @sodastreamau @joelparko  #onebottleforlife  @take3forthesea  @dayziart  @plasticfreesophia  @cleanupaustralia  @mattbarryimages  @elyse.knowles  These guys are all making the change and making a difference #everybitcounts  #BubblesForNow 
  • This is a project we are thrilled to have had the opportunity to work on. It’s been under wraps for a while but this week @sodastreamau  launched #OceanOfTheFuture The initiative aims to display the devastating effects and the ongoing impacts of single use plastics on our oceans and marine life.  Our role at Lump Studio was to create the internal structure of a Turtle for @dayziart to cover with found rubbish he collected from the beach and ocean in his home town.  Swipe left, you can see just how much rubbish was collected in only a couple of weeks.  We all know it. It’s time to change our consumption habits. It’s not helpless we can make a difference @sodastreamau  #onebottleforlife  @take3forthesea  @dayziart  @plasticfreesophia  @cleanupaustralia  @mattbarryimages  @elyse.knowles  #everybitcounts #BubblesForNow
  • The “Wire Amplitudes” sculpture would look just as at home if found deep in the ocean.
