Kitchens are emotional spaces. It’s not just all splashbacks and smart storage. It’s where we nurture our loved ones and share meals together. So when we began to indulge ourselves with the inspirational spaces, clever construction and new materials you see in this issue, we felt very connected to the dream kitchens we had our hands on. We know that transforming kitchens is a passion for our readers, and Australian kitchens are particularly inspiring – it’s got something to do with our light, our indoor/outdoor vibe, warm materials and a freshness that isn’t really the same in overseas kitchen design. The first thing we did this issue was talk to 10 Australian interior designers and architects we admire – drawing on their knowledge and experience – and asked them to share the kitchens…

coffee table & rug

1 LEARNING CURVE why it works: Paired organic shapes create flow and movement with their lack of defined corners. Bold metallic tones are echoed in the rich burnt orange of the rug, keeping the palette and shapes relative. 2 GREY MATTER why it works: If you’re going monochrome, partner different shapes, patterns and textures to bring contrast and interest to your pieces. 3 ALL THAT GLITTERS why it works: Graphic shapes complement a darker, minimal coffee table, with just enough hints of gold to blend in.

cult classic

Get your dose of design through David Harrison’s blog at designdaily.com.au. THE ORIGINAL ‘265’ wall light by Paolo Rizzatto for Flos The form: A pivoting steel wall light with a rotating spun aluminium shade. What makes it special: Designed by Italian architect Paolo Rizzatto, the ‘265’ adds incredible flexibility to a room’s lighting possibilities. Launched in 1973 by Italian lighting specialist Flos, the skeletal form of the ‘265’ has made it a favourite with interior designers and art directors in photo shoots for its ability to add interest and shape in the horizontal plane – its 205cm arm combines with a pivoting wall bracket to allow a maximum reach of 265cm (hence its name). Born in 1941, Rizzatto graduated from the Milan Polytechnic in 1965 and has won many design awards, including the…

board meeting

With their eyes on an increasing budget, Perth couple Izabela and Lukasz Katafoni made full use of economical oriented strand board (OSB) for their new build in the city’s outer eastern suburbs. They added a bench seat of varnished OSB to further link the staircase and upstairs roofing to the ground floor. It wasn’t the last of their ingenious decisions, either. Turn to page 54 for more.

the designer kitchen

Jeremy Bull PRINCIPAL, ALEXANDER & CO DESIGN PRACTICE The latest iteration of Jeremy Bull’s family kitchen in Sydney was made with his tribe of four boys under eight in mind. He used stone skirting, stone tide lines and stone tiling on almost every surface. The benchtops are stainless steel, as are the fixtures, and the ceilings are either exposed timber joists or painted timber linings. “It’s close to a ‘hose-able’ room, but not quite!” says Jeremy (pictured, with his son Felix, 5). Unpainted timber brings warmth to a room that’s very much the centre of his home. “Conceptually it is part-cooking, part-eating, lounge room, fireplace room, handball court, laundry,” says the designer. “It has developed into an all-purpose space – quirky, beautiful and varied.” Visit alexanderand.co Sarah Wolfendale INTERIOR DESIGNER The kitchen-dining-living area is the pièce…
