Dutchman Nicolaas Johannes van Putten arrived in Australia in 1960 with business ambitions and a talent for watchmaking. Nick turned his hand to jewellery, developing a precision process to create earrings, which he exported worldwide. In the 1990s he diversified into tap making, employing 55 staff. Today Sussex is in the capable and caring hands of Nick’s family. For the new Sussex generation customisation and the expression of individual tastes are exciting motivators for continued innovation. Yet while they have an eye to the future, they uphold Nick’s legacy of quality and precision.
Our Scala range was inspired by the easy-going spirit of the Australian lifestyle. Its clean, elegant lines and industrial cues reflect the essence of our contemporary surroundings. Scala’s place in our collective imagination has made it one of Australia’s timeless classics.
Nature and mathematics share a beauty based in symmetry. The Voda range celebrates this pure aesthetic through its eye-pleasing geometric lines and the visual harmony of its shapes. Each member of the Voda range is perfectly proportioned, both in itself, and in relation to its complementary pieces.
Our Suba range celebrates Australia’s love of minimalist design. The bold shapes of modernism inspired us to craft a collection that brings a sense of strength and balance to any setting. Understatement can be powerful and Suba’s restrained subtlety creates a striking effect.
The Monsoon shower head seeks to capture the invigorating sensuality of an open-air bathroom in the tropics. Its rich cascade will elicit a tingling wave of pleasure as it washes over you. Yet, as it’s crafted from the finest steel possible, the Monsoon has a reassuring solidness.
There is no purer geometric form than the circle. Our Circa collection draws upon this elemental shape to deliver timeless design, crafted to perfection in our Melbourne workshop. Elegant and brilliant, Circa is an inspired contemporary creation.
