    Tenandry by Mury Architects.

    Silence was the aim. This is a home for a family with young children – one of whom is profoundly autistic. Life is chaotic, noisy and at times tricky. The family did not seek vast amount of additional floor area for their inner-urban, Victorian, semi-detached terrace in Sydney. What they were looking for was a home that was practical with a level of spatial amenity that allowed them to ‘breathe’.

    The architectural diagram for this home is concise. The addition only slightly amends the footprint of the original house. It is the section that dramatically alters the home to meet the client brief. The overall impact of the home has been the creation of a sanctuary in the frenetic life of the family as well as in a dense urban environment.

    Bib & Tucker Brand Identity & Interior by End of Work.

    is a restaurant and bar on Leighton Beach in Fremantle, Western Australian and is the latest venture by Olympic swimmer Eamon Sullivan. End of Work were given the name and an empty, fairly non-descript white box situated on the beach.

    The designers invented a back-story around two dandified bandits, Bib and Tucker, from mid-1800’s Fremantle, an early Australian version of Bonnie and Clyde.

    The story goes that they would have been just as likely to compliment you on your exquisite taste in shoes as to relieve you of your wallet. This theme of ‘elegant rascality’ set the tone for the project and, working with Romie Alwill and Wil Dangar, we utilised a stripped-back colour palette and tactile, rustic materials to build a brand with grit and authenticity and a tiny splash of elegance.

    Eames Moulded Wood Side Chair from Herman Miller.

    In their longstanding commitment to the Eames vision of continued exploration, refinement, and discovery, Herman Miller introduces the Eames Moulded Wood Chair—a beautiful expression of their timeless design.

    Achieved with the help of today’s 3-D veneer technology, this authentic form is the result of a process that gives the veneer the flexibility it needs to be moulded into the complex curves of a single shell.

     

    The chair is available in three finish options—white ash, walnut, and santos palisander—and a wire, timber dowel leg, or 4-leg base. This versatile piece can make a striking statement in any dining room, living space, or office.

    Available in Australia at Herman Miller.

    Up to 40% recycled aluminium is used in their manufacture and a unique powder coating technique ensures that the lights are also 100% recyclable. Available in 5 sizes and 7 delicious colours. For more info and trade pricing, contact Leigh Johnson at Catapult on 0407 728 955 or [email protected]

The unusual and versatile ergonomics allows for personal choice of upholstery and colour, creating different chromatic solutions. Completely removable covers.

    Art Exhibitions.

    MAPS by MaricorMaricar at Koskela.

    MaricorMaricar, aka fraternal twins Maricor and Maricar Manalo, are embroidery illustrators who made the most of their slightly obsessive compulsive impulses by taking up needle and thread. Their work combines elements of design, art and craft. Maps is a solo exhibition of textile based works that explore pattern and place using needlework and patchwork techniques. Inspired by their time in London, these new pieces look at colour, grid and pattern as a way of reflecting their experience of the city.

    Show opens on Saturday, 6 July, 2-3.30pm and runs until 18 August.
    Koskela, 85 Dunning Avenue, Rosebery NSW.

    Soliloquy by Toby Burrows at Black Eye Gallery.

    Soliloquy, the latest photographic series from Sydney-based artist Toby Burrows, will launch at Black Eye Gallery on Thursday 4th July. Inspired by pre-Raphaelite painting and the poetic beauty of Shakespeare’s Ophelia, Soliloquy is a contemporary photographic interpretation of a classical theme. The series is an organic creation of in-camera images using traditional studio techniques, theatrical sets and underwater choreography. Captured from a vertical viewpoint, the photographs are non-reliant on image manipulation for atmospheric effect.

    From Thursday 4th July to 21st July.
    Black Eye Gallery, Darlinghurst NSW.
