Ganim's Store

Ganim’s Store is a living space. Each object is useful for house and self but also preserves the unexpected and surprising story of its making. Local items sit with hand-gathered goods from Japan, Europe and beyond, exchanging perspectives between established designers and new hands. Inside you will find the classic design books of Italiano Bruno Munari sitting next to current cult Nobrow Comics. The revelatory figures of a collaboration between Rae and iconic illustrator Beci Orpin tell of this intergenerational tête-à-tête. Other materials return from the past, like the salvaged textiles used in the latex bags by Luisa Cevese and artful House Blocks that give second life to the Eames’ alphabet. Weaved baskets and sculpted creatures crafted by the Tjanpi community speak of desert tales and tradition.

Bright and bold enamel bowls by Variopinte find an unexpected home with refined Fog linens. Objects passed from hands to hands create stories; each item holds the warmth of history, a present place at Ganim’s Store, and an undefined future with you.

Rae Ganim

Rae Ganim’s own story reads as a distinguished designers should. She started her own eponymous label in the 80s, producing signature Ganim-colour items for fashion and home, stocking in boutiques and department stores worldwide including Neiman Marcus in the US. She was later commissioned to craft uniforms for Hyatt Hotels, the Girl Guides, and has won many fashion Industry Awards and in 1998 was inducted into the Design Institute of Australia’s hall of fame. Her textiles can be found in the collections of the National Gallery of Victoria and State Library of Victoria, or in homes as pieces belonging to her coveted ganimtextiles range. The fillings of Ganim’s Store showcase the culmination of Rae’s inimitable identity and taste, and her thoughtfulness for design-wares and special objects and the stories they hold and pass on.
