Welcome to the November edition of Yellowtrace Spotlight – were you worried we missed it this month? Usually we present some of the awesome new submissions on the first Monday of the month, but this time we thought we’d shake things up a bit. So without further ado, today we are sharing a whole bunch of Australian Design News including a fab new Aesop store in South Australia by Genesin Studio, Travel Agency interior by the new kid on the block – FLACK Studio, beautiful new products including lighting, tables, chairs and handmade rugs. Plus four amazing exhibitions in Sydney and Melbourne you can’t miss and so much more. Until next month: X O X Team Yellowtrace.

Aesop Rundle Street by Genesin Studio.

The new Aesop Rundle Street store is located in Adelaide’s East End, in a beautiful Victorian building. The design intent for the store was to understand the age of the local setting of the building which meant understanding the fundamental materials. Once understood, these materials were reinvented into the space to encourage nostalgia of the site’s heritage but also to create interesting design components to platform the Aesop shopping experience into it’s new precinct.

The interior has a warm and approachable palette with Aesop’s signature dusty mint green painted front window that frames up the light interior space. The main retail space is encased with a large selection of merchandised products that are sitting on bespoke solid timber and steel rod shelving that disappear into the walls. The high ceilings with Victorian period detailing have a simple blackened steel trapeze shelf system that creates visual interest through all the product areas.

East Ivanhoe Travel & Cruise by FLACK Studio.

The redesign of East Ivanhoe Travel & Cruise agency was premised on creating an environment where general conceptions of the role of the travel agent in the digital age could be reset. The client delivers a dedicated, personal service for their own clients’ utmost comfort and luxury. With the golden era of travel in mind, FLACK Studio was tasked with bringing to life this style of service within the workspace. The end result is an understated, sophisticated environment that invokes the elegance of the 1950s and 60s through a thoroughly modern take on it.

An Exhibition of Paintings by Alesandro Ljubicic in Collaboration with Mr. Cook Flowers.

Alesandro Ljubicic is a young Sydney artist celebrated for his highly textured, super colourful, abstract oil paintings on linen. Sean Cook of Mr. Cook Flowers is a talented Sydney florist known for his signature organic luxe style, derived from his love of colour and a preference for the raw and natural over prim and contrived. Inspired by Sean’s floral arrangements, who frequently supplies Alesandro with the flowers as his painting subject, an unusual collaboration was born – an exhibition of painting presented by Art2Muse Gallery, in Sydney’s Double Bay.

11 – 24 November 2014
Official launch on Thursday 13 November 2014 from 6pm – 8pm
Art2Muse Gallery | 357 New South Head Road, Double Bay
