"What has always driven Spence & Lyda and always driven me, is a fascination for the why of the thing, not just the wow of the thing. There needs to be a reason for things to exist, and it can be and should be obviously beauty, but it really should also carry with it the embodied elements of care for our planet, care for ourselves, and the stories behind why it's being built."

"The way it works for me is that the idea is a kind of 'what if' moment. A moment of spontaneity. Like, what happens if you put ocean plastic together and made a new material? When an idea strikes, you can be anywhere. So, you've got to hold that thought, play it over and over and over in your mind. Really refine it. Almost like how a wave might shape a rock."

"An idea in its infancy is a fragile thing. It can be killed off with logic almost immediately. It must be allowed to be given oxygen. History reminds us of how influential original thinking can be and how lives are improved by it. To be truly creative you need to push against the norm - and certain political and commercial pressures."

"I think people are drawn to Tasmania and Tasmanian design; the designers here treat their materials as innately good already. Sustainability just comes very naturally to us, living on the island, and I think people are drawn to that because we've been practicing it a long time, and so we're now leaders, I guess, in sustainability. We're very good at it just naturally."
