Mechelle Shooter is currently studying Industrial Design at RMIT, and is also a recent graduate of the RMIT Associate Degree in Design (Furniture), during which she received the Best Student Design award at Fringe Furniture 2014 for her hallway piece Monkey Bars.

Her interest in the exploration of sustainable materials and processes can only be quenched by further study in the design field, and she looks forward to continuing to create innovative solutions to design conundrums during her degree.

Mechelle is highly influenced by nature, mid-century design and aspires to use organic materials and sustainable practices in all of her designs. Where possible all of her pieces are made and finished by hand.

Mechelle designs as the Bent Twig.
