    Artbank is a Commonwealth support program established to collect and promote the work of Australian contemporary visual artists. Formed in 1980, Artbank’s collection of some ten thousand works represents a comprehensive catalogue of Australian contemporary art over the last three decades.

    Design Masterclass & Interview With The One And Only PATRICIA URQUIOLA!

    21st November

    I had the great privilege of being invited to attend Patricia Urquiola’s exclusive master class earlier this week, as part of Space Furniture’s 20th birthday celebrations. The three hour design ‘workshop’ explored ideas through the hands-on making, based on the way Patricia’s own studio works in Milan. The class was a bit like play-school for grown-up designers – colourful, exploratory and times almost silly, but so friggin fun and liberating. In truth, most of us who were there would have been happy digging trenches if it meant spending some time alongside one of the world’s brightest design stars. There are simply no words to describe how extraordinary this woman is. I bow to her, respect and admire her to the moon and back, with intensity only those closest to me can comprehend. Despite her worldwide superstardom, I am happy to report that Patricia is as humble, grounded, real and generous in person, just like one would expect from her work. After the workshop, I was extremely lucky to have Patricia all to myself for my first ever one-on-one, proper grown-up “real life” interview…



    Interview // Nicholas Gurney.

    11th September

    Nicholas Gurney is an exciting young Australian designer on the rise who established his design studio in 2012 focusing on small-scale, modest projects. Since then, he has developed an impressive body of work, particularly for someone so young who also works solo. The hallmark of his work is good quality design at low cost. Look, guys – I know we all love a client with a juicy phat budget, but the reality is that most people aren’t able to afford high-spec products and projects. Does this mean they shouldn’t be allowed to have access to great design? Absolutely frigging NOT! This is why Mr Gurney is a little legend in my eyes, and definitely the one to watch…

    Interview // George Livissianis.

    3rd July

    Talented Sydney interior designer, George Livissianis, is no new-kid-on-the-local-design-scene. Although some of his projects have deservedly taken out a number of design awards in the last two years, I still feel like his work hasn’t been publicised and celebrated as much as it deserves to be. Perhaps this is due to the fact that Mr Livissianis appears to be the kind of man who’s more dedicated to his craft, rather than the art of self-promotion. You see, even his website doesn’t contain any images of his beautiful work. Whassup wit dat? But not to worry, we are here today to fix this…



    Little Trace Of // Natasha Frisch.

    23rd January

    Sydney-based artist Natasha Frisch creates elegant and meticulous paper sculptures that challenge our perception of the built environment. Many of her works posses a chameleon-like quality, effortlessly camouflaging themselves into their immediate environment…
