Porcelain Bear is a design studio characterised by an experimental exploration of its namesake material. Traversing the worlds of furniture, lighting and object d’art, the Melbourne based studio is distinguished by its unique marriage of traditional techniques with contemporary technology.
Led by the artisanship of founders Gregory Bonasera and Anthony Raymond, Porcelain Bear strives to reimagine porcelain in a decidedly contemporary manner, exploring its boundaries while inventing entirely new applications that respond to the needs of the world’s leading interior design and architecture practices.
Porcelain Bear pendants, wall lights, luminaires and bespoke furniture are found in private homes, public dining rooms and luxurious hotels across the world. Recent projects include Hyatt Centric, Voco Melbourne and Woollahara Hotel.
Our atelier is steeped in traditions of European and Australian ceramics with a focus on cast porcelain. Our Australian made porcelain items are unique, made with the highest quality materials sourced from around the world and made by hand in Melbourne, Australia.
Some of our most popular light fittings include porcelain pendants lights and interior wall lights. Our lumieres offer a modern interpretation on classic chandeliers and create a beautiful focal point in entrances, staircases, grand halls and other large spaces.
