Who we are
Kist Displays is a family owned and operated business based in Melbourne, Victoria.
The business is the vision of Michael, who took his training in Furniture Design and years of experience in making sets and props for the film industry, to create a small business that can create customised products for the creative industries.
We are proud that our products and our craftsmanship have been commissioned by leading Australian brands such as Holden, Sotheby's/Smith & Singer, MECCA, Kookai and Tennis Australia and we are passionate about we do. We are committed to providing our customers with quality products and attentive service, which is why 50% of our business are returning clients.
For over 11 years, the cornerstone of our business success has been high quality custom displays, modern and stylish plinths, and professional service. We have helped thousands of businesses maximise the impact of their products and improve the aesthetic of their displays and events.
Who we work with: You!
Some of the key industries that we work with include:
Florists and wedding coordinators
We can deliver to you, whether you are located in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane or further abroad; we sell our products across Australia and overseas.
We personally deliver within greater Melbourne. For outer Victoria and interstate delivery, we can quote and organise the freight for you.
Kist Displays is our first choice for gallery display solutions. Genèvre & Michael are a pleasure to work with, and deliver both impeccable service and quality required for our exhibition spaces.
I’d like to state that Kist were awesome to deal with from the time we discovered them, to the excitement of your first prototype “rock” and all the way through to the final production of 110 sets of Colorado Rocks. We we’re taught the various stages and methods of producing such a unique product in volume and Michael really helped explain the concept to creation very well. The quality of each and every product was superb. The Holden dealers were all very happy with the end product.
The Creative Ones
We have been working with Kist for over 4 years. We find their customer service efficient, friendly and professional. The finish of the products is high quality and flexible and allows us to reconsider how we think about think about their usage. We have used them for gallery installations, serving food buffets, signage and grazing tables. Kist is our go-to for plinth hire and looking forward to continuing to work with them in the future.
We had an event coming up for a high-profile client that had something particularly specific in mind – all very last minute. Kist not only had the plinths we required in the colour, quality and quantity, they also delivered to the event site and picked everything afterwards making the process very simply from our point of view. I couldn’t recommend them highly enough.
The Gemba Group
Kist provided 50 beautifully crafted, crisp, clean plinths for our last 2 fundraiser projects, these plinths made our exhibition as much as the artwork itself. Genèvre and Michael were lovely to work with, delivering the plinths themselves and with a smile. Their ongoing support of the project has helped the Toy to the World Project raise nearly $10,000 and counting, supporting the great work of the Victorian AIDS Council. We look forward to continuing to work with Kist for years to come.
One Little Indian Enterprises
We have hired from Kist on numerous occasions for a range of requirements. The service they provide is extremely efficient, the products are of high quality, they are always delivered with love and care and have done the job beautifully on every occasion. Thanks for helping us make things very professional.
The ENQUIRING MINDS team found Kist a delight to work with. As our brief for our event was extremely ambitious, we were very grateful for support such as quality plinths delivered to site - the feedback we gained from the experience was it was the 'details' of the design that made the event shine. Thank you and we look forward to working with you again in the future!
Big Bang Studio
The plinths are a huge success. They are excellent quality, durable and stylish – perfect for photoshoots and window displays in our retail stores. Production and delivery was very quick. Thanks so much.
Belinda from Bondi Wash
Kist Displays were incredibly accommodating and professional throughout this project. Genèvre and Michael’s dedication to even tight deadlines was nothing short of amazing, and despite being in the eastern states, Kist delivered the order far quicker and offered much better value than the local WA fabricators I spoke to. The attention to detail is highly commendable, and every plinth in the huge order was constructed to an absolutely perfect gallery finish. I would absolutely go with Kist again next time.
Sara Walker, Gallery Curator
I recently had two plinths made for artworks to go into our new home. Kist were delightful to deal with, that nice balance of pleasant and professional. The plinths they built for me are stunning. They are finished beautifully and I couldn’t be happier.
