Fairbairn House in Melbourne by Inglis Architects.

A simple architectural language of masonry, timber & stone was enlisted for the house, located in inner city Melbourne. The light fittings, furniture and soft natural finishes are purposefully simple and pared back. This brick house feels raw whilst achieving elegance through composition, texture, volume, light and program.

‘Swine & Co’ Restaurant in Sydney by Melissa Collison.

Interior Designer Melissa Collison has created a vision of grotesque glamour for Urban Purveyor Group’s new tri-level concept restaurant, Swine & Co. An homage to the pig set in a historic art deco era building, the result is a theatrical ambience that combines the sexy with the sinister. Design elements unique to the site (the former Bank of New South Wales building) are married masterfully with the original bank manager and accountant’s office in frosted glass, transforms into a sleek champagne oyster bar.

Interior, Credenza by Brendan Jurich | Yellowtrace

 

‘Interior’ credenza by emerging WA designer & maker Brendan Jurich.

This credenza attempts to demonstrate that furniture can initiate a greater spatial presence by generating a prolonged and more engaging experience with the piece. The ‘Interior’, a modernist timeless piece made from American black walnut and Victorian ash, the intertwining of interior and exterior through material rigour has become a stimulus for a new way of thinking about furniture design.

Ipnos light by Nicolette Rossi & Guido Bianchi for FLOS.

An indoor-outdoor LED floor lamp composed of an ultra-light skeleton of thin extruded aluminium profiles, emanating diffused luminosity. In the dark, only pure lines of light emerge, leaving the space inside the lamp empty. The anodised aluminium of ‘Ipnos’ is available with anodised natural, black, brass or copper finishing.

Young Lonndon design Studio, STUDIOLAV created this tin and leather tote bag in response to the invitation by design retail destination DING to use the traditional tin container as a raw material for a design object.

New Design Pieces by Kiko Salomão Architecture.

Brazil based architecture firm Kiko Salomão Arquitetura have created a new collection of furniture, consisting of a side table, a coffee table and a bench, which were designed around the minimalistic aesthetic and chic contemporary influences. “The pieces were originally created for one of our interior design projects, but there was such great acceptance that we decided to produce them separately as design pieces” said Kiko Salomão.
