Tilt Industrial Design


Tilt is a leading Australian Industrial Design consultancy working with architects, landscape architects, artists, and designers to help them achieve their creative vision. It designs and constructs unique features and products for commercial, residential, public art, and landscape projects, including sustainable design solutions, custom architectural features, operable architecture, and product design.

Always at the forefront of innovation, working with the latest technologies, materials and manufacturing techniques – Tilt provides clients with the creative flexibility to develop their design ideas and concepts beyond the constraints of traditional construction methodologies.
Tilt’s goal is to ensure its clients design intent is achieved while balancing functionality, durability and materiality concerns – at the same time delivering on the project’s commercial objectives.
Established in 2014, Tilt was formed when Managing Director, Tim Phillips, saw a unique gap in the market. Phillips saw an opportunity for traditional industrial designer skill sets to support the delivery of integrated architectural and artistic features – applying the industrial design process to expand the possibilities for creatives working in the built environment.

Tilt now employs over 30 people across Sydney and Melbourne offering clients a turn key service for design, manufacturing, installation, commissioning and maintenance and its multi-disciplinary team works collaboratively with clients throughout all project stages, including concept development, detailed design, fabrication management and on-site installation to successfully deliver each unique project. Every team member is a specialist in their respective field, designers and engineers collaborating to add value to the process of design for architects and artists.
Since conception, Tilt has worked with both Australian and International clients, to push the boundaries and deliver award-winning projects.
