New Address – 39 Cunningham St, Northcote (Westgarth)

Tuesday, March 6th, 2018

We have completed our relocation. It was a huge job so we are taking a week or so off before we think about setting up the new space. The new space isn’t as large as our former location. We have an additional site where we will store the overflow. We need to set up these two spaces before the stock returns. The timing of this move was less than ideal as we are also moving out of our house as renovations are about to commence. It will take us a couple of months to get sorted out but if there is anything you need in the interim, please let us know. Screen design and production will continue as per normal.

We look forward to seeing you in our new space when it is set up. Over the weekend I was joking about our new life of leisure. That bubble has burst!

KIF & KATAST: Unexpected Relocation

Tuesday, January 30th, 2018

Open this weekend only (3rd – 4th February 2018)
Saturday: 11-4pm
Sunday: 11-3pm


It is in disbelief that I need to inform you that we will be relocating.

We commenced re-negotiating our lease last year. Our landlord made us an offer and we accepted this prior to Christmas. In preparation for our renovations / new showroom, I designed and prepared the drawings for the new doors to open up the façade. This was completed with the landlord’s knowledge & approval. Last Wednesday we received a letter giving us until June to vacate. I carelessly relinquished our legal rights when I negotiated directly with our landlord in good faith beyond December 01 in the belief that we shared a common vision for the building. This void our legal rights to our remaining two, 5 year terms.

Given we need to move & the rent hike begins at the end of our current term (28th February), there is no point putting off the inevitable. We have sought a new location quickly and will vacate by the 28th February. My concern is that we will look dodgy moving with limited notice but the new rent value is nasty and could only be justified when you are building a business, not delaying the inevitable.

We look forward to providing you with details of our new location shortly.

As we pack, we are reminded that we will definitely not miss the dust. She is a charming old building but with too much character in some departments!

Thank you for your support. We are still in shock but our new space will allow for more creativity & international travel so the outcome will be positive.

We will open the shop this weekend before packing.
Saturday: 11am – 4pm
Sunday: 11am – 3pm

Should you require something beyond this weekend, we should be able to located it for you. In our new configuration our stock lines will be reduced so don’t delay if you want something.

Thank you again.

Kif & Jen


As it was to look…alas


The pergola and shop front are dissembled and packed so we are well on our way!

We will update you with our new phone number and address in due course.

We have decided to open in new year

Sunday, December 21st, 2014

The fit-out will be completed by Christmas, but we have decided not to open until the New Year. A batch of screens have been abducted by one of our powder-coaters until mid January. We had made alternate provisions, but that would mean double installation, hammer-drilling and wall patching to open in a period when most people are away anyway. As such we will open as soon as we have received these screens.

Almost Open!

Friday, December 19th, 2014

Our Popup Showroom / Retail Space screens are in. All going well, we should be open for at least a day or two before christmas! It may not be the full area of our longterm showroom but it is deceptively big. Now to fill it. Confirmation of opening pending!

The screens for this Mosman project rise out of a staircase, casting shadows across the interior. The outer screen of each series is hinged so that they can be opened to allow abutting screens (installed in a concealed track system) to be moved across the windows for cleaning purposes. The screens were specified by Hare + Klein who we have had the pleasure of working on many collaborations, along with Saturday Studio.
