ROB SHAW Rob shot the portraits for Architecture, p48, and The Office, p202. What’s your aesthetic? No style: a little bit coastal, a little bit country, from my wife’s influence. Your enduring creative influences? Local artist Neale Joseph. I love his landscapes. Photographers Mark Seliger and Joe Cornish. Surf photographer? There are too many to say.

what we love right now

[ Naturally gifted ] THE WOOD ROOM Fresh from its collaboration with Patryk Koca (left, with elements from his ‘Trim’ armchair and tables) The Wood Room has debuted the timber ‘Bell’ table (above) by interiors firm Richards Stanisich. 1_ MUSEUM PIECE Fiona Lynch deployed bespoke joinery and furniture by the likes of Paul Barbera for her artful design of TarraWarra Museum’s entry foyer and retail space. 2_ NIGHT VISION Konstantin Grcic’s ‘Noctambule’ lighting for Flos integrates LED discreetly between blown-glass modules. The design is “mostly invisible [by] day but [comes] into glamorous activity at night”. 3_ NORTH COUNTRY Anna-Carin McNamara harked back to her roots in rural Sweden for her latest collection with Designer Rugs, taking inspiration from runes, the cosmologically charged Norse alphabet. 4_2035 SPACE ODYSSEY Vitra called on boundary-pushing polymath Virgil Abloh to devise a space for the…
