In 1991 brothers Ben and Geoff Cobham started a design company - and bluebottle was born. As happens, families grow, Geoff set up house in Adelaide whilst Ben met Andrew Livingston at St Martins Youth Arts Centre in Melbourne. Their first production, Jack and the Bean Stalk, was a success, and inevitably led to the formation of the Melbourne arm of bluebottle. Geoff Cobham keeps bluebottle Adelaide afloat, where he resides, and Andrew and Ben co-direct bluebottle Melbourne, aka BB3.
Like families, bluebottle has grown over the past two decades. Together with their talented and valued staff, bluebottle creates its own design and light-based work, and is fortunate enough to engage with a diverse range of artists, designers and their projects. Bluebottles work can be seen in theatres, galleries, museums, found architectural spaces and architecture through disciplines such as music, dance, visual art and exhibitions. We are interested in working with people from all art forms and work places to create outcomes that both challenge and excite.
Alongside our expertise in lighting and design, Bluebottle offers project management services. Our keen attention to detail and our drive to push the boundaries of our work on every project has necessitated the need to be a self sufficient management team. We are capable of managing all aspects of any project to achieve an excellent outcome.
