Interview with Peter Rattle for CUS (Vic) Pty Ltd at Friday 1st of May 2020
Peter Rattle
FS: Could you please tell us more about your art and design background? What made you become an artist/designer? Have you always wanted to be a designer?
PRFCPL: Originally I started out as a Civil Engineer in the Mining and Manufacturing sector but I have always been interested in the symmetry of both natural and man-made items. From there I progressed into the fabrication of custom furniture whereby these symmetries blend together.

FS: Can you tell us more about your company / design studio?
PRFCPL: Commercial Upholstery Solutions (Vic) Pty Ltd is a manufacturer of custom designed furniture for the commercial market place. We can combine upholstery, joinery, metalwork with polishing capabilities to bring any project design to reality.

FS: What is "design" for you?
PRFCPL: Design to me is an idea that something needs to not only fit the purpose required, but also push the boundary.

FS: What kinds of works do you like designing most?
PRFCPL: I like to work with all types of products that can have an impact.

FS: What is your most favorite design, could you please tell more about it?
PRFCPL: Some time ago we completed a project for the University of Melbourne that involved not only the manufacture of hundreds of Acoustic panels, but also a new installation method over 6 floors and a large Atrium. That was ground breaking for us and eventually won a Golden A 'Design Award.

FS: What was the first thing you designed for a company?
PRFCPL: My first design was furniture for a Hotel Lobby fitout.

FS: What is your favorite material / platform / technology?
PRFCPL: We currently use a variety of fabrics, timber species as well as metal.

FS: When do you feel the most creative?
PRFCPL: At the initial briefing with the Clients on a new project.

FS: Which aspects of a design do you focus more during designing?
PRFCPL: How best to manufacture the product and keep it under budget.

FS: What makes a design successful?
PRFCPL: A tricky question but simply one that meets the budget, meets the Builders/Architects requirements and leaves the Client with the wow factor.

FS: Who are some of your clients?
PRFCPL: Our Clients, range from high end Hotels, Resorts, Restaurants, Casino's, Educational facilities to Office fitouts.

FS: How can people contact you?
PRFCPL: Via our web site: www.cusvic.com.au
