Looking Up


When Westfield commissioned Australian artist Jade Oakley to produce ambient art pieces for their central escalator cladding and a multi storey lift well at Westfield Parramatta she was instantly inspired by the indigenous plants of the area.

“I was amazed to find Lake Parramatta, tucked in behind a busy road, with some really beautiful original forest around it, including towering gum trees and mossy glades with trickling streams and tree ferns. I spent a day there sketching and photographing and thinking. Looking up is an artwork that sprang from this encounter with a surprising pocket of nature in a busy part of Sydney.”

‘Looking up’ is installed over the body of four escalators located in the centre court of Westfield Parramatta. Created using a white on white palette, this artwork is intricate and elegant all at once. Viewers can study the artwork while walking through the centre court and riding the escalators to the levels above. 

The cladding is made from Alucobond treated in a custom shimmering white 2pak. The background features an etched relief of the forest canopy, and the panels are embellished with a second layer of perforated leaf screens that wrap around the sides of the escalators.

Florida sets the bar


Axolotl Florida launched in the middle of 2017 and the team dove straight into some exciting projects to flex their creativity and know how in the US design scene. 

The first project showcased is a private residence where our Zinc surfaces were utilised as a continuous theme throughout, with Zinc Lunar Pearl treatments to the feature walls and bar, and Zinc Smooth applied to the staircase to stunning effect. Finished to the highest standard, this project has a modern and sophisticated design sensibility which expertly shows how to introduce features that harmonise with the overall design of the home.


In a separate project, Axolotl Bronze Florentine in our Skyline design was applied to the bar front at the new Florida bar, Casa D’Angelo. The end result is sophisticated and elegant, and complements the lavish bar décor.

Year in Review


As the year starts winding down we would like to take the opportunity to thank our clients, staff, and friends for your continued support and wish you all the best for Christmas and the New Year!

2017 has been a positive and busy year at Axolotl; we were a Supporting Partner of Sculpture by the Sea at Bondi, Event Partner at Design Made and had our products showcased at Denfair, Sydney Indesign and Design Made.

We sponsored the UTS graduating students, the IDEA awards for the seventh year, four artists at Sculpture by the Sea Bondi, Nina Maya’s Glasshouse and the Marcus Piper and Shannon McGrath exhibition, Fracture: Differences.

Three new products were launched, Sculpt and LINK stone surfaces and our new coloured stainless steel Spectrum, extending our palette in beautiful new ways. We also love our new look showroom.

Our Mojo bath ware received two awards from Good Design and the Sydney Design Awards and we were excited to receive two additional awards for Excellence in Environmental Architecture - Australia from the Excellence in Asia Pacific Awards and named the Best Global Architectural Products Supplier from the Australian Enterprise Awards.

And to top it off we not only launched a new licensee in Florida, USA which is already creating some beautiful and groundbreaking work but have opened a new showroom and factory in New Territories and North Point in Hong Kong.

We can’t wait to see what exciting projects 2018 will bring! As always, we remain committed to continue being ‘The Future of Surface’.

Axolotl will be closed from Friday 22nd December and will reopen Monday 8th January.

New Territories


Axolotl are excited to announce the expansion of our China based operation with the opening of a new factory and showroom in the New Territories and North Point in Hong Kong. This sits alongside the much larger facilities in Jiangmen in China. Between the two locations, Axolotl China has the ability to create work to any scale.

Headed by Eric Chan, the new showroom showcases an expansive range of art and architecture, including sculptures, panels, doors and a vast array of samples. Eric says, “There’s a genuine excitement about bringing Axolotl surfaces into Hong Kong and China. There’s a definite hunger for luxury in much of the market, and tastes in interior design are growing ever more sophisticated. We are fortunate that Axolotl’s technology is on the cutting edge of this entire category”.

Hong Kong and China have always been a big market for Axolotl surfaces, so now with a dedicated set up to service the region it’s now convenient and easy to access the skills and surfaces that are unique to Axolotl.

Materials: Aluminium, steel, paint

Sculpture by the Sea at Bondi is one of Sydney’s most popular events with up to 500,000 visitors each year. Staged on the spectacular Bondi to Tamarama coastal walk, this free to the public exhibition captures the imagination of Sydney and its visitors for three weeks each spring. Sculpture by the Sea has grown since its inaugural show in 1997 and is now the largest annual sculpture exhibition in the world, this year showcasing 104 sculptures by renowned Australian and International artists.

Axolotl Art Projects are proud to be a Supporting Partner of Sculpture by the Sea, Bondi 2017 by providing significant contribution in the form of materials and artisan support to four artists. This year the artists selected for Axolotl sponsorship were Marcel Cousins, Stephen Harrison, Elyssa Sykes-Smith and Fiona Kemp.

We believe that arts and cultural events like Sculpture by the Sea are what keep communities vibrant and active and we are proud to play a small part by supporting these artists to create their artworks. Sculpture by the Sea, Bondi 2017 is now open and will run until 5 November.

If you are an artist looking for an experienced partner to facilitate your art projects, Axolotl, through our specialist AAP division can offer an extensive range of services. We are unique in our offer of our own specialist surfaces and have experience designing and fabricating across most construction materials. To get in contact email or phone 02 9666 1207.

Introducing Axolotl Stone - Link and Sculpt


Last year Axolotl launched Axolotl Stone Surface, an incredibly thin and malleable natural stone surface that allows designers and artists to realise creative ideas never before possible with a natural stone.

As part of our ongoing commitment to manipulating natural surface products to transcend existing design limitations, we have developed ‘Stone Link' and ‘Sculpt’.

‘Stone Link’ beautifully blends stone with inlaid stainless steel, brass or resin offering a unique beauty with custom designs. ‘Sculpt’ enables carving and polishing of natural stone to create almost any 3D design.  

Because of the bespoke nature of all our surfaces, you can individualise each stone piece. Choose from our own portfolio of designs, or create an entirely unique design.

The Axolotl Stone Surface range is not a composite product, but natural stone. It is available in a range of marbles such as Pacific White and Carrara, as well as stones in beige, whites, and blacks with thicknesses ranging from 10-20mm.


Axolotl launches in US


Axolotl continues to build its international presence and is excited to announce the opening of its first US licensee - Axolotl Florida, based in Fort Lauderdale.

Stanley Young and Jody Miller-Young are excited by the opportunities to be the first licensees in the U.S. The alignment between their luxury real estate construction business and the unique benefits of Axolotl surfaces promise to deliver exciting innovation. Stanley and Jody have a rich background in design, media and construction. Charlie Young will be head of production and trained at our facility with our Creative Director, Kim Torma, earlier this year.

The US is a huge market for our surfaces, and Axolotl is without peer in terms of what we offer in innovation, design and bespoke surfaces. We have been looking for the right partnership in the US and Stanley and Jody bring amazing expertise and passion that really fits with our philosophy.

“When was the last time you were able to tell a designer or architect they didn’t need to worry about weight or shape when working with metal or concrete?” enthused Miller-Young. “It’s like having that ace in your pocket, offering something beautiful and unique and doing it in a way no one else here is. We are eager to develop our business in America and help designers, builders and artists realize their vision.” 
Axolotl has already delivered projects throughout the US out of our manufacturing base in Sydney and having physical representation in Florida only makes it easier for US designers and specifiers to incorporate the unique offer of an Axolotl surface. Already Axolotl FL is experiencing tremendous enthusiasm for the range.

If you have a US project you would like to discuss directly with the Axolotl FL team you can contact Jody at

Axolotl delivers the full spectrum


Spectrum is a world first, unique coloured metal surface that is as infinite in potential as it is unique in beauty. 

Our newest surface was developed by our team in response to a vision in ‘blue metal’ by the designers at Futurespace. Never one to walk away from the challenge to usurp the traditional constraints of materials and deliver new creative opportunities, Axolotl set about inventing ’Spectrum'.

Spectrum, and its breathtaking potential, is showcased in a debut project for Savills, by Futurespace. Custom coloured ‘Tanzanite’ blue Stainless Steel sheets have been fitted to the curved interior faces of the stair void. The metallic surface provides a unique way to inject colour and vibrancy into the project with the high shine finish picking up the surrounding light and accentuating the curved walls.

Spectrum is typically available in flat Aluminium and Stainless Steel sheets in sizes up to 2400 x 1200mm and thicknesses from 0.9mm – 3mm.  Panels can also be laser cut to custom shapes and sizes. You can choose from the colours and designs we have developed, or unleash your creativity and design your own unique Spectrum surface with access to the full range of Pantone or CMYK reference colours.

Contact the Axolotl design team on 02 9666 1207 or for more information on Spectrum, or to discuss how it can be used on your next project.

Good Mojo Wins Out


It was no surprise, but very exciting to receive a Good Design Award for this striking Mojo Luxe bathware from Axolotl and Marblo at last week’s show.

The range didn’t stand out just for its beautiful, considered design, but also the innovative use of materials that hadn’t been seen before in this crowded market. 

Now it’s easy for you to have a piece of design history in your own bathroom as Mojo is available to order through Axolotl right now. Or if you want to create your own ‘good design’, contact us with your vision and we can bring it to life using any Axolotl surface, including metal, concrete, terracotta, stone or any combination of these.



Den Fair, the leading destination for contemporary design, opens today in Melbourne until the 10th June.
And with a strong focus on Australian brands, forward thinking and delivering the ultimate design experience, it’s only natural that Axolotl Paint would feature.
Leading designers, Ross Gardam, Anaesthetic, Adesignstudio and Stephanie Design have all incorporated Axolotl “Chroma” and "Timber Wash" Paint into their stands so you can browse a selection of our professionally curated and tightly edited range amongst some of the brightest and best design in Australia.
Axolotl Paints launched late 2016 and have quickly become a favourite amongst professionals and renovators who seek to lift their designs above the ordinary.
The Axolotl Paint collection is water based, has low and zero VOC's, and delivers stronger opacity, fuller colour and better paintability.

Good Design Awards 2017


Axolotl in conjunction with Marblo are incredibly excited to announce our selection in the 2017 Good Design®  for the stunning Mojo Luxe Bath Ware.
Good Design Australia announced the 2017 Good Design Selections last week marking the countdown to Australia’s most prestigious awards for design and innovation on June 8th 2017.
After an extensive evaluation process involving more than 35 Australian and international design experts, the Jury have finalised their results and awarded the best entries to receive the Good Design® Selection.
Mojo Luxe Bath Ware is now in the running to receive the coveted Australian Good Design Award, which will be announced at the Good Design Awards Ceremony on June 8 at the Overseas Passenger Terminal (OPT) in Sydney.
On receiving the Good Design® Selection for Mojo Luxe Bath Ware, the Jury commented: “Beautiful, considered design from every perspective. This is a great example of what professional design can bring to a crowded market segment. The Jury applauds the innovative use of materials in a space that has never been seen before.”

Australia’s Good Design Awards date back to the 1950's and have an enviable record of unearthing globally recognised talent and products.

Last year, the Flow Hive, an innovative beekeeping device that has taken the world by storm took out the prestigious Good Design Award of the Year, the highest design honour in the country.

The 2017 Good Design Awards Ceremony and Festival will coincide with Vivid Sydney.

“The Australian Good Design Awards attracted innovative entries from all corners of the world and the standard of submissions this year has really been incredible,” said Dr Brandon Gien, CEO of Good Design Australia and Chair of the Good Design Awards program.

This year’s Good Design® Selections represent excellence in design across the widest spectrum of design including Product Design, Service Design, Architectural Design, Design Strategy, Digital and Communication Design and Social Innovation,” Dr. Gien commented.

Opening the door to exceptional design


If doors are the entrance to the soul of the home, then expectations of what lies beyond must be pretty high when you look at these beautiful doors completed for our clients.

In fact, more and more we are seeing our customers view doors as less of an utilitarian item and more as a point of functional sculpture which adds architectural detail, colour, texture – and value - to their home.

Forget your old school moulded panel, natural wood or paint options and start dreaming. With Axolotl surfaces in metal, glass and concrete to design with, you really can achieve…

Get in touch and see how you can make a grand entrance.




Axolotl Paint was launched in October last year and has already seen great interest, with Axolotl Paints specified for a number of projects by top designers nationally.

We have been overwhelmed with the response and trust the industry has shown in the Axolotl brand since our launch. Our paints deliver the crafted quality and range of specialty finishes that has come to be synonymous with Axolotl. The Micaceous range has been particularly popular, with it’s unique shimmery matte finish making it a designer favourite.

It is now even easier to explore the Axolotl Paint range as our online shop is live and the full range is available to purchase directly through the website. You’ll also be able to find technical information, colour forecasts, advice, order swatches, paint outs, and sample pots.

With the launch of the Axolotl Paint online store, comes an exciting new Rust Paint to join the range. As global pioneers in developing a rust finish that could be applied for decorative effect, it is only natural that Axolotl should now include a Rust Paint. By adapting our unique process, which works with genuine iron, into an acrylic paint, anyone can achieve an authentic looking rusted effect on paintable surfaces. Axolotl Rust Paint can be applied on site for both interior and exterior settings to give an instant aged finish.

A cement paint is also due to be launched in the coming months!

We hope you enjoy exploring the new Axolotl Paint site. The full range of colours can also be viewed in our showroom where you can discuss your project with our expert consultants and order in store.

For more information on the Axolotl Paint range or to discuss your project, you can get in touch by email, phone, or visit the showroom today.

New Look Axolotl Showroom


If you haven’t visited our showroom in Matraville before, or if you haven’t stopped in for a while, you will be blown away by our latest renovations!

Here you can browse hundreds of samples in our range of surfaces, taking a journey from the simplest metal surfaces, through to the most uniquely inventive Link products such as concrete inlaid in glass, or metal ingrained into wood.

Be inspired by Florence Broadhurst designs, which have been reinvented as metal-coated screens and carved doors. In fact, be stunned at our range of doors, which have been re-imagined to add an imposing beauty, as well as value to your home. And while you’re at it, imagine the myriad of other uses for our surfaces such as bathing in the most exquisite copper bathtub, which is as much sculpture as bathroom furniture.

Axolotl Paints are the newest addition on display and it’s instantly apparent how unique these designer paints are, from the hand painted sample cards through to gloss embossed tin labels and the inventive test tube sample pots. Our paints are also available to purchase in store.

On your visit you will also find the limited edition Anomaly furniture range on display, which is Australian made and created by key Australian designers, plus bespoke work from some of the best Australian artists.

And of course, the Axolotl designers work alongside the showroom and are available for consultation and advice – although we do recommend call ahead to make an appointment.

The new showroom is more inspirational than ever. To celebrate, from the 6th through to 8th March we will even have a glass of champagne, or coffee and cake here for you to enjoy while you browse. There is no better reason to invest some time in a visit to Axolotl, and to see how we can help bring your design vision to life.

We hope to see you soon. Call 02 9666 1207 to make an appointment with a designer today.

Art in Review


Axolotl Art Projects are excited to showcase a selection of the recent public art projects and art collections we have been involved in.

Mallee (pictured above), by artist Jade Oakley is the most recently installed public artwork going up in its new home at Bendigo hospital early last month. A set of six kinetic mobiles link between two buildings at the new Bendigo Hospital, injecting the narrow void with an ever-changing canvas for the patients, staff and visitors to enjoy.

Each mobile is constructed from hand forged stainless steel hoops, a vine of intertwined stainless steel leaves with woven copper centres span the diameter. The mobiles were treated in Axolotl Copper metal and feature dappled green verdigris ageing.

Axolotl Art projects were commissioned to produce this intricate glass artwork, drawn by eminent Chinese pop artist Jacky Tsai. The piece is on its way to be installed in the Rouge Lounge on the Genting Dream Luxury cruise liner.

A fusion of pop culture and traditional themes synonymous with Jacky Tsai, the artwork is presented as a glowing red light box reminiscent of Chinese lanterns. The entry artwork has been created from custom laminated red glass with Axolotl Brass metal LINK on the surface. With intricate details as fine as 1mm wide, it took the Axolotl team over 120 hours just to produce the detail on the artwork.

SMC Design Art Consultancy sourced art for the Genting Dream on an international level and worked with renowned artists, as well exciting up-and-coming talent. Our own Emmaline Tuza was also commissioned to create a series of eight custom artworks for the Junket room on the luxury cruise liner.

The oblique distance set above by artist Lynne Roberts-Goodwin was created for her for closeupatadistance exhibition held in October at Kronenberg Wright Artists Projects in Sydney.

The set consists of twenty photo-etched negatives, laser embossed and etched onto 10mm thick aluminium metal. Within this key series the work has engaged with the Dead Sea and surrounding contested sites of environmental and political impact from aerially oblique and ground positions.

We also had the pleasure of working with Jade Oakley on her private commission for Otto Ristorante Brisbane.

Sketches of intertwined mangroves inspired from Jade’s first site visit were translated into laser cut, hand rolled and welded mangroves in 3mm thick Brass sheet, aged to represent tide and watermarks. The tips of the branches are adorned with kinetic mobiles with leaf elements in brass, stained timber and dyed silk which move gently in the breeze coming in off the river.

These projects, along with many of our latest art projects can be seen in more detail on the Axolotl Art Projects website. You also can find more information on showcased artists through their websites below.
