We’re Open: See Inside Ironlak Art & Design Brisbane

Ironlak Art & Design Brisbane is our second flagship store in Australia and is our continuation of a new breed of brick and mortar retail for artists. It’s also the Brisbane home of our extended range of Ironlak art supplies. For this second store, it made sense to set up shop in the place that a lot of us call home – the city where Ironlak HQ is based.

The Brisbane store is practically a basement, so this required a different approach to design than Sydney. There was no denying the lower ground nature of the store, so the fit out was conceptualised with this in mind. Inspired by Japanese housing and staying true to our brand colours, we used the motherload of black timber cladding to create a shell for our products to sit inside. The store is very black, but pops of neon light create contrast, and the wall of Ironlak cans create a colourful feature in the centre of the store. Vans the Omega blessed our gallery walls with his signature geometric patterns, in a subdued colour palette, creating a permanent backdrop for walls that will eventually hold feature exhibition artwork. And our man Sofles came through to be the first to paint our feature art wall.

Blake Ibbotson of Fat Projects and Michael Doherty Shopfitting were instrumental in making the store happen. A huge thanks must go to them.

Our new products include acrylic & oil paints, gouache, watercolour paint, brushes, colour pencils, technical drawing pens, gel pens, canvas, charcoal, pastels, sketchbooks, pads and easels. We’ve got Ironlak apparel too.
