It all began as a casual dinner among a group of foodie friends and colleagues. Then casual banter turned to the topic of what we all love to cook, which then progressed to much self-promotion of our skills in the kitchen. The Hot Black team issued a cook-off challenge to the Humanscale and Schiavello team to determine whose kitchen really rules!

The night was held at Smeg’s stunning new showroom in Collingwood. Smeg generously provided the use of their space and beautiful appliances as well as antipasto and drinks. Each team, decked out in personalized aprons, created a stunning main course and dessert, which was served to our ‘judges’, the team from Montlaur.


Schiavello International in Canberra is proud to have been a part of the newly constructed $7 million John James Village facility in Garran, ACT.  The first purpose-built accommodation for blood cancer patients who are receiving treatment in Canberra, Schiavello provided loose furnishings for the six-apartment complex.

While people undergo treatment in Canberra for life threatening blood cancers such as leukaemia, myeloma and lymphoma, John James Village will provide dedicated accommodation for patients and their families without charge.
