Good Sport

A tribute to the Platypus Sporting Goods Company, Melbourne.

Digital model

Good Sport is a tribute to the Platypus Sporting Goods Company. Owned and operated by four generations of the Brown family it was once a thriving Australian cricket ball manufacturer. In 2010 Platypus reluctantly closed its Melbourne factory and sent its production to Asia due to the rising costs imposed on Australian manufacturing.

The vase takes its form from stacking the leather waste from manufacturing two-piece cricket balls – once made in the Platypus factory in Melbourne. The stack of leather rings is carefully constructed and scanned using a 3D scanner. The digital file is subsequently refined to print the 3D vase.
