    Gallery Post // Aesop Store in Kyoto Kawaramachi.

    9th May

    Aesop Kawaramachi store in Kyoto, designed by Torafu Architects, reflects the history of the neighbourhood and aligns itself with contemporary Kyoto.



    Random Studio Amsterdam Office Designed by X+L.

    6th December

    When it comes to super beautiful workplace interiors, it seriously doesn’t get much better than this. This is the sort of project that makes me get all hot and sweaty under my lady collar, with seriously impure thoughts running through my brain. Random Studio enlisted the help of Amsterdam based Studio X+L, who were an obvious choice to design the new space that felt like ‘home’. The brief called for a creative workplace that was open but felt intimate; an environment that would invite creativity and stimulate the sharing of knowledge and inspiration…



    The Inaugural Aesop Berlin Store by Weiss—heiten.

    15th November

    Weiss—heiten have designed the first signature store in Germany for Australian skin care brand, Aesop. The store recently opened on Alte Schönhauser Street in Berlin, Mitte. Reflecting Aesop‘s approach to build unique site-specific stores that reflect local qualities, Weiss—heiten explored the unique character of Berlin, it’s tension between the contrast of old and new, roughness and beauty, urban and nature. Inspired by Gerhard Richter’s colour studies and monochromatic canvases and by the city’s industrial history and everyday charm, the interior assumes a palette of leaf-green and a quietly clinical aesthetic…



    Monsieur Bleu by Joseph Dirand at Palais de Tokyo // Paris, France.

    28th May

    With an enviable location in the new wing of the Palais de Tokyo, perched on the quays of the Seine just across from the Eiffel Tower, Monsieur Bleu is set to become the City of Light’s new place to be seen. Designed by French architect Joseph Dirand, the interior cleverly combines classical and contemporary, incorporating Dirand’s signature aesthetic – understated, minimal and so-cool-that-it-gives-me-a-headache…



    Design Free Thursday // Mimicry by GiesenLeenders.

    20th December

    “Mimicry” is a quirky little series of images by Dutch photography duo Maurits Giesen and Ilse Leenders of GiesenLeenders. Each colourful scene captures two matching characters perfectly camouflaged in their environment. Without trying to get all super analytical and intelligent about it, I find there is a real feel-good element in each of these images…



    Design Free Thursday // Body Art by Olaf Breuning.

    15th November

    In this colour-study body art series, eclectic Swiss artist Olaf Breuning investigates the possibility of using the human form as a canvas. Red, blue, yellow and green are used against inky black background creating a super striking effect. Even though this is not the first time you’re seeing painted people on yellowtrace, I was quite intrigued with the way Breuning references famous artists such as Jackson Pollock, Jasper Johns, and particularly Andy Warhol’s famous Marylin Diptych series…
