The genius that is Alexandre De Betak of Bureau Betak strikes again (and again). This time with a knockout mirrored kaleidoscopic installation for Portuguese fashion designer Felipe Oliveira Baptista. Marking the 10th anniversary of the fashion designer’s line, the exhibition took place at Museu do Design e da Moda (MUDE), the design and fashion museum in Lisbon, Portugal.
American photographer, Autumn de Wilde has designed a pair of transparent and reflective jewel toned structures for a photo-shoot in the dry Californian landscape. Made of a combination of mirror and coloured plexiglass, images of the landscape are reflected on the structure, and the landscape is simultaneously cast with rose, warm gold and aqua tinted sunlight. The reciprocal exchange of colour, light and refraction are truly exquisite.

Jeppe Hein is a Danish artist based in Berlin and Copenhagen. His work sits “at the junction where art, architecture, and technical inventions intersect.” It’s playful, interactive and experimental, and only when the audience is present do Hein’s sculptures truly come to life. Seriously, boxes vibrate and clatter when approached, walls of water appear and his various mirror works only do their thing when people move around them.
Scanlan Theodore’s newest stores – in Sydney’s Paddington and The Strand Arcade, and Melbourne’s Armadale – have been designed by Sydney based practice, Meacham Nockles McQualter. Like the iconic Australian fashion label, the architects approached these retail fit-outs with the same commitment to simple, modern classic design, centring around beautiful materials and attentive craftsmanship.
