The Festival

Here at GH Commercial, alongside Godfrey Hirst, we are thrilled to announce our continued support as festival partners with the Melbourne International Comedy Festival in 2024. This year we are proud to again supply a range of custom carpets throughout selected festival venues. With a commitment to irreverence, innovation, inclusivity, and free expression, the Melbourne International Comedy Festival is dedicated to discovering and showcasing exceptional talent to entertain and inspire a diverse audience in Australia's comedy capital. 

As local manufacturers, we value supporting community events such as the Melbourne International Comedy Festival, allowing us to engage with our local community. We have a passion for creativity, fun and inclusion here at GH Commercial, so our decision to partner with the Melbourne International Comedy Festival provides the perfect opportunity to align our values and celebrate performance and creativity.

The Highlighted Product

For the Festival's diverse venues and unique vision, the Melbourne International Comedy Festival sought custom carpet designs to bring their branding and presence to life across the Festival. Our Designer Jet® custom carpet technology emerged as the perfect flooring solution, facilitating collaboration between the festival team and our in-house design experts. Together, we crafted a series of distinctive, branded designs tailored to each venue's specific requirements.

Designer Jet® Carpet

Lorena Gaxiola + Feltex Featured At Trades Hall

Lorena Gaxiola has yet again partnered with the Feltex design team to bring another entirely new concept of floor coverings and fashion-inspired carpet designs to life. Lorena Gaxiola + Feltex’s latest collection Fortuna, Lucky Eight is being featured within Trades Hall one of the iconic venues of the Melbourne International Comedy Festival. Within Trades Hall we have enlisted the help of Dulux Colour Forecaster and Designer Bree Leech to design a new elevated space to enjoy throughout the Festival.

This new design draws inspiration from Lorena’s personal lucky number 8 and is available in a range of carefully selected colourways with the further opportunity to customise to your own colour palette. The Fortuna collection transforms ordinary carpets into playful works of art, bringing a sense of optimism and infusing a sense of good fortune. Coinciding with the Chinese Lunar New Year, the Fortuna collection symbolises a celebration of design in a perfect way to start the year with positive energy and creativity. You can find this eye-catching carpet in the design led Feltex lounge space at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival.
