We are auctioning one of our 'Ancestors' coffee tables - a collaboration piece with award-winning Indigenous artist, Sarrita King, to support the Australian Red Cross, WWF and CFA in their efforts battling against all the odds in the ongoing Australian Bushfire crisis.

This limited-edition piece examines the crossover links between indigenous dreaming and the astrological understanding and mapping of the stars through translating Sarrita's dot artwork into a brass 'dot' inlay into the recycled Red Ironbark timber.

The piece retails for AU$3495 and won a Gold Medal at the  Melbourne Design Awards.
