Spanish fashion house Loewe opened its Melbourne flagship store in May 2023, offering the largest range of its highly desired bags & accessories, homewares, shoes and mens & ladies ready-to-wear in Australia.
It sits proudly in a corner location of the iconic landmark T&G Building, joining other high end luxury retailers at the ‘Paris end’ of Collins Street and is home to an eclectic collection of art and design featuring furniture, homewares and soft furnishings on a backdrop of pristine concrete, ceramic surfaces and glass hemmed by glazed pink tiles.
The craft of leathermaking has been central to the Loewe story for in excess of 175 years, combing the passion for traditional techniques and materials with modern technologies to create iconic objects of desire. Committed to the art of handmade craft, the brand has a keen interest in decorative crafts and unique artisan crafted objects and original works along with contemporary art as it inspires and informs their collections.
Dynamic Closures was engaged early in the design phase, on the back of our reputation for customised security solutions, to collaborate with the design team and develop a solution for the shop-front interior that would result in an aesthetically pleasing physical security barrier while still enabling after hours community engagement.
The result is a sophisticated side-folding closure with enhanced security features, in-built strength & reliability, hidden in joinery cupboards during trading hours, which provides the reassurance of a secure zone after hours for the retailer and its staff.
The award-winning Space concept has been designed to complement the brand’s digital-first retail model. The minimalistic, monochrome interiors in each Space provide customers with a calm and thoughtful environment to experience Polestar’s product portfolio and connect with the brand.
Visitors to the new Space will be able to explore the in-store vehicles at their own pace and even take a test drive and arrange collection of their new vehicle from the Chadstone Shopping Centre location.

June saw our teams from QLD & NSW join a variety of industry suppliers & supporters exhibiting at the Interior Fitout Association (IFA) Trade Shows held in Brisbane & Sydney.
From solid surfaces, laminates, computer software & site equipment to our own Dynamic concertina door samples, there was plenty to get your hands on. Passionate about the industry, exhibitors happily share knowledge and educate the shopfitters attending on the products and services available. Best of all, these free events are a great networking opportunity; catching up with our favourite people in the industry for a drink and a chat is always a good way to spend a couple of hours on a Thursday afternoon.
If you're in Melbourne or Perth, make sure you come and see us at local events in August & October.
May 2023 saw the opening of Rebel's largest Australian store at Joondalup Lakeside Shopping Centre in Perth, WA.
Rebel's Customer Experience store (rCX) combines sporting apparel, footwear, sporting goods with interactive zones, state-of-the-art technology and gaming taking the 'try before you buy' experience to a whole new level.
After consultation with Rebel's design team to ensure the shop-front closure solution met the specification and requirements for this large format tenancy, Dynamic was proud to see the purpose built Wide Body model grace the store entry on opening day.
Designed for large openings, this concertina style security door is a reliable easy to operate manual folding closure with the ability to stack & store out of sight during trading hours.
We look forward to seeing Rebel Knox (VIC), Rebel Warrawong (NSW) and Rebel Chatswood (NSW) open their (side-folding) doors over the coming months.
As an Australian manufacturing business, we have been keenly following the debate and progress of Australia’s Emissions Reduction Plan. We’re proud that our door systems are largely constructed of recyclable materials; aluminium, polycarbonate and glass, part of a sustainable future.
After much research, we felt that moving to low emissions technology for our energy needs would provide the opportunity to reduce our carbon footprint and make a positive impact on the environment. As a renewable source of power, solar energy plays a role in reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
Five months later, we now have 79 solar panels on the roof of our Melbourne factory, generating an estimated annual output of 50223 kilowatt-hours (kWh). We expect that we will export 36% of the low emission energy we generate back to the grid annually.
With ever-escalating energy costs and a pay-back period of less than 4 years, this decision is good for our business, our people and the planet.
Member networking tees off at Joondalup Friday 17th March
The first golfing event on the 2023 Interior Fitout Association member networking calendar was held at Joondalup Country Club Resort, WA on Friday 17th March.
IFA members and industry associates were treated to beautiful sunny weather and a stunning location, with the Dynamic team on hand to greet participants with giveaways.
The perennial lolly guessing competition was won by Jason from Masonex with his guess being just seven off the correct amount, winning him a Makita tool kit. Masonex are long time supporters of IFA Golf Days in Perth, also generously bidding for the lolly jar in years gone by.
This year Dynamic raised $700.00 for the Olivia Newton-John Foundation.
Dynamic proudly supports IFA QLD Golf Day
The 2023 IFA QLD / Dynamic Closures Golf Day was held on Friday 24th March at Nudgee Golf Course in Brisbane.
A huge turnout of around 140 players resulted in a fantastic amount of money being raised for Ronald McDonald House Children's Charity in SE Queensland.
Dynamic's lolly jar guessing competition has been a crowd favourite for many years and this year was no different! Luke from Trivision took home the Makita tool kit, while all attendees enjoyed giveaways from our hospitality marquee on hole #1.
Between the lolly jar guessing competition and the auction of a QLD 2022 NRL State of Origin Jersey at the presentation lunch, just shy of $4,000 was raised for charity.
It was an awesome way to spend a sunny Friday and Dynamic hopes to see some of the first-time golfers return next year.
Sydney finally enjoyed a sunny day for the IFA NSW Golf Day held on Friday 28th October, 2022.
Our Sydney team from Dynamic Silver Service joined other industry members for a round of golf at Cabramatta Golf Club. A delicious lunch in the Clubhouse was enjoyed afterwards and heaps of raffle prizes and give-aways were dispensed.
Dynamic continues to proudly support these events and this year the lolly guessing competition raised much needed funds for Ignite Food Store, an initiative tackling food insecurity in the local western Sydney area.
Ladies from our Victorian office enjoyed joining Paul Wade and Dawn Swainston at the Winning With Adversity lunch hosted by Interior Fitout Association.
As a National Principal Partner if the Interior Fitout Association, Dynamic Closures was pleased to be Event Sponsor of the QLD Golf Day for 2022.
