let’s go to: studio bomba | australia.
i first spied this mastermind — this quite perfectly designed, light-filled space over on by zebra books. founded by graphic designers leah dent and Angela Mitchell, and based in leedville, western australia Studio Bomba is a wee shop and design studio on oxford street. much like makeshift society (here in san francisco and soon brooklyn), Studio Bomba is a shared co-working space, but with multiple personalities — a collective working design studio complete with a letterpress named “herbert”; a local shop carrying stationery, artwork, accessories and designer knick-knacks made by the clever creative folks that sometimes share Studio Bomba; and, they even brew a mean cup of coffee — boasting a miniature coffee bar that peddles tasty treats to those who dwell in the studio and those who drop in to see the shop, or while-away some creative time in one of their workshops. Studio Bomba is now a shared space of independent creatives — working individually or together — depending upon the project, product, brand or event. and currently, high on my list of places i’d love to visit.
