In the first issue of inside for 2021, I can’t help but dwell on 2020. The world as we know it has changed. The industry as we know it must too. Our headlining feature addresses diversity in the Australian design industry. In my first year at the helm of inside and Australian Design Review, I have come across this issue again and again. As an editor, as a writer and an awards coordinator in our industry, I am committed to highlighting, celebrating and promoting diversity in all its forms across all my platforms, but I know there is more that I can do, that I need to do. In this, I cannot thank the Melbourne interior designer Brahman Perera, journalist Hayley Curnow and all the designers, photographers and artists featured…

Living Outside is a collection of residential gardens representing the most ambitious and inspiring contemporary interpretations of mid-century Australian design. It features projects that embrace their unique landscapes, from coastal cliffs and expansive grassland to tropical forest and even urban neighbourhoods. One such project, Lune de Sang, designed by CHROFI, gets a mention for its dual purpose as both garden and a native forest that can one day be sustainability harvested for finely crafted furniture, while architect John Ellway’s Terrarium house, which features a front door disguised in a wall of green, is described as an “experiment in creating an overgrown indoor jungle”. But Living Outside is not just a pretty collection of blooms. Inaugural creative directors of the International Festival of Landscape Architecture, authors Sharon Mackay and Diana Snape penned this…

PROJECT SUBTYPE PRACTICE NOISE NOISE NOISE Noise Noise Noise pays homage to Sydney’s second oldest Heritage site – 350 George Street – with a ‘conceptual retail space’ dipped in gold.

As an intended juxtaposition to the seriousness of the Heritage site, the studio tonally layered primary yellow throughout the store. Upon…

In early 2018, Studio Anagram founder Akihito Tachibana discovered Haymes Paints’ newly launched Artisan Collection on Instagram. Tachibana had founded his furniture and product engineering group less than a decade earlier as a way to bring the dreams of architects and designers to life. Now he was contacting us, keen to know more about the Artisan Collection’s textural look and feel – yet another reason why it’s so important to properly curate your social media presence! Despite being a design-driven nation, the Japanese have only recently begun to use paint on their walls. Traditionally, homes were made from soil and using paint is a trend that never really caught on in the way that it has…
