collaboration with surface 1°22


What happens when two creatives trained in fashion design turn their attention to the home and interiors market? Emily Wills and Kerrie Mould come together through a collective vision to create unique design pieces that reflect their love of colour, texture and print.

“Fashion, Textiles, Product and Interior Design merge under similar philosophies fusing visual communication with decoration. From a design perspective, it was a natural progression for us to build on our fashion background through the lens of object and surface design.” Emily Wills.

The Melbourne duos’ first collection of contemporary interior products has landed in a swoon-worthy colour palette of peony, sherbet and dusk blue. Evoking carefree summer holidays, these limited edition pendant lights and framed wall textiles draw on the playful styling of coastal boat sheds and seaside towns. Geometric pattern, organic texture and strong form compliment the light-hearted and playful colours giving the collection a truly modern feel.



Ode to Elma is a lighting design studio specialising in sustainable lighting. Driven by a strong environmental philosophy recycled materials are the primary ingredient used in the creation process. Taking inspiration from the beauty and wonder of the natural world the result is a range that has a very organic feel and uniqueness to them.
