Profile Published: December 2020

Grain & Sass is a design & furniture studio based in Northcote. The business was born out of necessity, combatting 'fast' product consumption and the consequential concentration of wealth. Ross established Grain & Sass in 2019, after transitioning his passion for natural materials and craft into a full time, project-based business. Ross has completed a Bachelor’s Degree in Visual Art and an Honour’s Degree in Industrial Design, gaining experience as a professional Industrial Designer in medical technology & innovation, as well as lighting design. During these years, he struggled with the lack of connection it brings to working with natural materials and with his hands, ultimately knowing that craft brings him more joy than design for consumption. Ross crafted the framework that guides the ethos and practicality of the business, allowing Grain & Sass to operate under its own ethical compass. A simple rule, ‘built for good’ combines the objective of furniture that’s built to last, using local and ethically sourced materials. And yep, Sass is the shop dog!
