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.

    I’m always so inspired by your site. I love this shop/studio – especially the yellow door and the typography. I linked to you on last week’s roundup of inspiration on A Few of My Favorite Things – http://www.afewofmyfavoritethings.us/friday-five-reading-weekend/ – Lauren

    Yay! I love everything about Studio Bomba. Even the toilets are nice. They do a cool babycino too.

    Today at work I had to make a plan of things I would like to achieve this year and visiting Leah Dent’s studio space was number one on my wish list but I couldn’t remember the name. Then I opened up Pinterest and there you were to tell. Thank you. Luckily for me I live only about an hour away. Yay!
