Furniture maker Tim Noone and contemporary artist Artem Bryl nominated the Children's Hospital at Westmead, who provide the best care possible to our sickest children and their families.
THE Product/ Neo Partis
Tim's construction idea for this side table came from trying to upcylce offcuts from bigger jobs into something new, rather than just throwing them out.
Neo Partis is Latin and roughly translates to new direction, or path. Tim has taken a new direction in furniture with this design and so has Artem by collaborating. Artem has added his signature distressed painting style to the table top and incorporated the squares and symmetry of Tim's architectural design.
Tim and Artem selected the Children's Hospital at Westmead because they feel children are among the most vulnerable in our society. "The kids hospital allows kids who are going through hell to just be kids," says Tim. "We think it is incredibly important for kids development to be allowed, as much as possible, to just be kids."

THE Maker/ Tim noone
Tim approaches the design and making of furniture from an inbuilt passion and inherited love of the craft. One side of his family built coaches and the other owned and operated a timber mill in Heron Creek. Wood is Tim’s bloodline – to pursue woodwork was a natural step.
His designs tend to flow organically, with soft curves and clean uncluttered forms; nothing ornate or extravagantly decorated. Predominantly one timber is used with a complementary timber for small details. He finds his pieces often ‘ask’ to be of a single colour to reveal lovely grain patterns and let the timber speak for itself. When designing a piece or a range of furniture, Tim is driven by a desire for beauty above all.
At the end of the day, Tim is doing what he loves. This is reflected in each and every facet of his work.
