The word iconic gets (over) used a little too often these days the Sydney Opera House is iconic! and is one of my most favourite building in the world.
The Sydney Opera House and Sheridan share a deep history. Sheridan founder Claudio Alcorsobecame the founding Chairperson of Opera Australia in 1971, which brought the rst operasingers to Australia from Italy to perform on the Opera House’s world-famous stages.
Sheridan’s design team were invited on an immersive experience at the Sydney Opera House. Within the building they gained insights into the construction of the venue, through to the details and materials included within each of the spaces, viewing early programmes and performances as well as discovering the creative stories that contributed to the venue’s design.
Inspired by the striking architecture of the building, the art on its stages, and the natural surrounds of Bennelong Point, the team hand-painted and sketched the designs that now appear in the collection.
“It has been a rare privilege to collaborate on a range which celebrates one of Australia’s greatestcultural and design icons. This truly original collection has been designed to re ect the continuingenergy, evolution and vibrancy of this famous landmark.” – Joanna Ross, GM of Design at Sheridan
“Sheridan’s artistry, quality craftsmanship and shared history of championing the arts made ourcollaboration a natural t, resulting in a beautifully crafted and truly inspired collection. By creatingunique, bespoke pieces that celebrate the style, beauty and innovation of the building itself, our visitors can take a piece of the Opera House home with them.” – Miriam O’Rourke,
