Now in store: By Joost

“I want to bring our food back to the beginning. The pot acts as reminder that this food has been harvested, planted and grown” – Joost Bakker

Our retail store has recently received a delivery of home wares from By Joost
By Joost is the brainchild of Rustenburg born, Melbourne based, Joost Bakker. Joost’s passion for sustainability and design inspired his latest collection of pottery home wares, which includes cups, plates, and bowls. 

Each bespoke piece is handmade and unique, and is made from raw, natural elements found in Australian soils. The materials naturally weather and age, and can be eventually returned to the earth without contributing to landfill. 
Joost’s design career began on his family’s flower farm when he started creating café floral arrangements. Incorporating objects found on the farm, Joost developed a unique aesthetic that was soon highly sought after within the Melbourne hospitality scene. Since then, his career in design has advanced quickly.
Minimising the ecological impact of humans has long been a mission of Joost’s. His Greenhouse project, which has seen temporary and permanent sustainable restaurants set up around Australia, is perhaps his most well known venture to date.
