Bureau Proberts

We seek to understand the context of every project, listen to our client’s needs and develop highly creative, yet commercial, design solutions for project challenges. This approach has helped us deliver some of Australia’s most striking, functional and successful buildings. “B^P started at the beginning of a property boom and has grown alongside many of our client’s businesses. This has given us a great understanding of the commercial realities of the design business.” Liam Proberts, Director



Minter Ellison

Minter Ellison is one of the largest full-service law firms in the Asia Pacific region. With more than 280 partners and 1,000 legal staff located in Australia, Hong Kong, The People’s Republic of China, New Zealand and the United Kingdom, Minter Ellison supports leading industry and government clients when and where they need us. With a strong Asia Pacific focus and people who are passionate about putting the law to work, we deliver practical commercial solutions. Few law firms have Minter Ellison’s experience in advising Queensland’s public and private clients. That’s not surprising, given our Queensland heritage dates back to 1896 and our continued commitment to practice as a full service commercial law firm. Today is little different from 1896 – our practice is still based on the values we hold, a commitment to intellectual rigour in all aspects of our work, and being passionate about putting the law to work.

Brisbane Airport Australia

Brisbane Airport is the Gateway to Queensland. It is not an island operating on its own. It is part of a growing ‘New World City’, and a thriving state. Millions of passengers use the terminals each year – 24 hours a day, seven days a week – to connect with places and people across the world. More than 17,000 people work at the airport each day, and thousands more jobs are indirectly linked to its operation and growth. Brisbane Airport Corporation (BAC) is leading the way in developing strong and mutually beneficial relationships between the airport and the community. BAC sponsors a wide range of community groups and services and is also heavily involved in Brisbane’s sports, arts and cultural life. With an emphasis on engagement with regional and local organisations, BAC’s approach is driven by its commitment to fostering positive community relationships across sport, business, arts, environment and community. BAC is a proud sponsor of the Tinker Tailor Soldier Sailor exhibition and tour.



Grain Furniture

Grain is Australian furniture for Australian Homes & Businesses. Grain timber furniture is tailor made to order every time. We can adapt & adjust our furniture styles – changing; size, timber, colour & finish to your needs. Grain is crafted from solid and veneered timbers into the modern styles we have created for our stories.

Grain is locally crafted to be timeless and refined. We draw on furniture styles from all over the world and make them, our own. While our style looks forward, our style is steeped in Australians rich design past. Grain prefers to use local species such as Moreton Bay Chestnut, Spotted Gum, and Victorian Ash. When the look requires, Grain blends these local timbers with beautiful imported species such as, American Walnut & Oaks, from certified sustainable suppliers.

Australia has an equally proud history in managing and preserving our scarce local timber resources. Of course all our timbers are responsibly managed for long term sustainability. Grain are proud to be the furniture sponsors for the Tinker Tailor Soldier Sailor exhibition.
