Power to Make remains operational at reduced capacity during the Victoria Stage 4 restriction as we manufacture components and parts to support the residential building industry. COVID safe workplace is now in place to ensure all our staff are safe – meaning that most of our staff are now working from home and only essential staff is onsite. No visitor is allowed to the workshop apart from delivery pick-up or drop-off as of the 6th August. Respond to your queries may be slower than normal. All product and furniture order can only be fulfilled once the restriction is lifted.
Please stay safe

The name Power to Make implies the potential to make objects, in a sense anticipating a future vision of design and making. Our ethos is to capitalise on digital technology to produce highly crafted objects which are customisable and yet comparable in price to mass-produced items. We believe that good design should be accessible to everyone.

Power to Make is uniquely set up as a micro-manufacturing facility located in Preston, Melbourne. Founded by Paul Loh and David Leggett, the duo (aka LLDS) both trained and practised as architects in the UK and have extensive research knowledge in digital fabrication and craft. As a micro-manufacturing facility, we are not restricted to mass producing a single type of product to minimised running cost. Being micro, we can be more responsive to client’s requests and demands. We explore making directly from digital model to physical object; merging craft with digital processes. This way of making allows us to have continuous feedback between how the design performs and its aesthetic, allowing us to craft and refine the digital information we use to make our product.

Together with our catalogue range of furniture and products, Power to Make offers design and fabrication services to the construction industry across all sectors. We have design and manufacturing capacity to produce architectural scale pieces such as plywood formwork for concrete casting, balustrade and timber roof structure. In addition, we offer digital fabricating services for designers, architects and artists through collaboration, and consultation.
