We are spreading positivity and love this month in a series called ‘Love letter to earth’. Due to the devastation sweeping our world, we are sparking hope to create change for a brighter future.
Doing our part to preserve the planet we live on is something that we have always been passionate about, and this is instilled in the sustainability values of ISĒ. We believe in working together as a community to create the change we want to see in the world.
This month, we will be sharing love letters with you from people in our community who are as passionate about the planet as we are. Celebrate with us — be inspired to create change and reflect on your personal commitment to our planet and the place we call home.
What will you reflect upon or commit to the earth?
Share your love letter with us #MyLoveLetterToEarth
THE RUDI'S FROM RUDI ROCKET
Photography by Walter Maurice
Simone and Brad, also known as ‘The Rudi’s’, started Rudi Rocket from their mutual love for great design, beautiful furniture, art and objects, and the joy of bringing these pieces together in their own space. Simone, a designer, has been a collector since childhood and has always been fascinated with ‘old things’, while Brad, an artist, spent his childhood in his father's art studio filled with interesting objects he collected on his travels. They said “Rudi Rocket happened more by serendipity and chance.”

“We still have hope for the world, it’s just a critical time for a re-think and how we as humans need to work with nature, not against it.
Our contribution to sustainability is to ‘save’, restore, refurbish old pieces so they continue to be loved and used. And to help remind people there are great alternatives to ‘shiny & new’. There is value and beauty in vintage furniture and objects, they have lived many lives, and have many stories to tell.”
