We are excited to bring the SACKit Brand to Australia, offering local customer service and support for this beautiful, quality Danish-designed lifestyle brand.
Having worked with some of the World’s leading furniture brands, the team at SACKit Australia knows quality and design when they see it.
Alan originally trained as a cabinet maker in the shipyards of Scotland; he is now based in Sydney.
He has worked in various roles in the furniture industry for over 30 years, becoming the Director of Herman Miller Australia in 2002.
His role was expanded to cover the Asian region in charge of HM ranges of classic furniture.
He also worked with the Eames Office in Los Angeles, creating Eames events and exhibitions throughout Australia, China, Indonesia, Japan, Taiwan, and Thailand to communicate, preserve and extend the work of Ray and Charles Eames.
He left Herman Miller in 2009 and has had a “few hats,” including consulting with local and international furniture companies.
He is regularly asked to speak at design events in Australia and internationally; he also writes in design publications and blogs under the handle “thechairmaven.”
With an architect as a father, appreciation of good design was a fundamental part of growing up in New Zealand; however, Lucy eventually trained as an Occupational Therapist, which led to her setting up her own practice in injury prevention and health and safety.
Working with employers and employees to maximize function and prevent injuries led to an ongoing professional and personal interest in furniture design and completing a post-graduate Diploma in Ergonomics.
Family and travel put the career on the “back burner” at times, but the passion for beautiful and functional furniture is constant.
SACKit products are unique, functional lifestyle products made from high-quality materials with something for the whole family. Design is the foundation of all products, which is why the range includes beanbags, speakers, serving trays, and outdoor lights, continuing to expand each year to bring integrated designs to your home.
The link between the product range is obvious – they are functional lifestyle products that fit the modern, active life. SACKit is not limited to one product category; they identify customer needs and design products to meet them.
Quality is in the SACKit DNA
SACKit products are put to the ultimate test and only include products that the SACKit team would love to use themselves.
All materials are carefully selected to provide your everyday life with great functionality and aesthetics while being made from durable materials that will continue to last for years.
