Sarah Kalidis of Studio Onethirty
Studio Onethirty is a bespoke collection of fabrics, furniture and furnishings based in Sydney. Created by Sarah Kalidis in 2016, the studio is the result of a lifetime passion for design and all things handmade. The result is a playful mix of products that are influenced by the tactile materials Sarah has worked with in the past.
“My aesthetic is bold and playful, and I love to draw representations of the natural environment in my textiles”. Being an art enthusiast and artist has certainly played a role in conceptualising Sarah’s designs. Picasso is one influential artist whose works were an inspiration for her debut collection. ‘Maya’, ‘Paloma’ and ‘Claude’; all names of Picasso’s children, are aptly names of Studio Onethirty’s textile designs.
Each one of Sarah’s textile designs are based on her original drawings. “I love watching the transition from pencil to paper, through to upholstery fabric for furniture. My designs are typically created here in my studio, however I do like to spend time sketching outdoors in the garden, and you will find many of my textile patterns are inspired by natural foliage”.
Sarah’s fabrics are designed and printed in Australia.
