Ben-Tovim Design was founded in 2011 with a vision to create a range lighting and furniture that is locally made to serve the needs of Australia’s innovative interiors. Ben-Tovim Design puts material exploration, functionality and customisation at the heart of its range.
Each Ben-Tovim Design piece is made to order in small batches and assembled by hand in the B-TD studio situated in the outer northern suburbs of Melbourne. B-TD looks to source as many parts and materials from local suppliers as possible, allowing maximum customisation and collaboration with clients across the range.
Jonathan Ben-Tovim was born in Zimbabwe, grew up and studied industrial design in Adelaide and then moved to Holland to complete a masters at the renowned Design Academy Eindhoven. This was followed by several years of working as a designer in London, until 2010 when Jonathan finally settled in Melbourne to establish his own studio.
