It feels like only yesterday that I was writing the first of these letters as editor, and yet here we are, a whole year later and ready to introduce yet another great Design issue. How time flies!Life is crazy busy, everything feels in fast forward, and I’ve found myself wanting to lighten up a little. From de-cluttering my home to making more time for personal ’time out’, these days it’s all about breathing space.I’ve noticed the same sort of shift in design too – a stripping back of sorts. It’s made me more aware of the predictions of eminent trends forecaster Li Edelkoort that we heard last year during her seminar at designEX.

1. Geometrically inspired, visually striking and genius in their spatial simplicity, the work of Sydney artist DION HORSTMANS shines new light on the sculptural art form. His designs are almost architectural in their form, most often melded from powdercoated steel with angular shapes that cast curious shadows across the surrounding surfaces. Definitely one to watch. dionhorstmans.tumblr.com2.
