It’s finally here! The official unveiling of S(W)ING

After what seems like (and has been) a long time coming – we are so pleased that S(W)ING is finally due to be unveiled on Saturday by Clover Moore at the opening of Heffron Hall.  Congratulations to Jenny Turpin and Michaelie Crawford on the design of an amazing interactive artwork realised in collaboration with US!

Proud moment.  It is truly a beautiful thing!  Will send more updates after the opening/unveiling! Well done all.

It’s still an innovator in the cookware scene, 100 years on.   In May, World Kitchen engaged Big Kahuna Imagineering to realise Pyrex’s 100-year anniversary display in the windows of David Jones’ Sydney and Melbourne stores.

Big Kahuna goes mini

Well we pulled another one out of the Big Kahuna hat last week with yet another marathon effort going into creating our latest project – a 1:18 replica scale model of the new train that will be gliding the rails on the North West Rail Link. Continue Reading..


Welcome 2014!

A big BKI welcome to the New Year!  We’re excited to be back at work on some brilliant projects, starting 2014 with a bang.

Some of our work took on a new life over the course of the last year, with the over-sized Jim Beam cans (Jim Beam Bourbon for The Works) moving from their cooler at Bondi Icebergs out to bottle shops all around the country – perhaps you’ve already seen one at your local?

These iconic cans are truly living it up after being salvaged from the pool – send us a photo if you happen to find one. Cheers!

We took great care in relocating the magnificent marble Fountain we sculpted for artist Hany Armanious from the MCA Rooftop to Heidi Sculpture Garden. The sculpture is now on long term loan to the Heide Museum of Modern Art.

Our team created the fun-filled Lipton Sparkling Iced Tea ride, fitted out a traveling VW Kombi Cafe, created the amazing staging centrepiece which provided the backdrop for the SEVEN West Media launch and the glowing Vodaphone 4G brand device which lit up the Sydney Harbour foreshore.

Bring on your best briefs and give us a challenge, we look forward to imagineering the future with you!
