Welcome to the first issue of inside for 2018 and what an issue we have for your reading pleasure. Not only are there some of the most beautiful, unusual and creative projects to peruse, but also interesting and diverse reviews, profiles and interviews. However, more than the usual inclusions, this issue is special as it marks the 100th issue of inside. Since inception, some 22 years ago, inside has been a critical element of the design and architecture community in Australia, highlighting and supporting new talent and showcasing the best that Australian practitioners have to offer. We have seen the Australian aesthetic, design that is intrinsic to our culture, become a force to be reckoned with on the world stage and, somewhat immodestly, we like to think that inside has played,…

idea wrap-up

Well, what a night it was! To refresh your memory, the 14th year of the Interior Design Excellence Awards program was celebrated in Melbourne at the Meat Market on 24 November last year. With tickets to the event the hottest item in town and sold out six weeks prior to the night, everyone expected a fine party and there was no disappointment. On arrival the 600-plus crowd enjoyed drinks and canapés from star caterer Blakes Feast and mingled with friends as they listened to the cool music from the Victorian College of the Arts jazz band. As guests settled into their seats for the proceedings to begin the managing director of Niche, Paul Lidgerwood, welcomed the who’s who of Australian design and introduced the master of ceremonies for the evening, Peter…

david thomas: colouring impermanence

Pausing in front of a large free-standing black painted surface, one wonders whether it is a wall or a painting or both. The seemingly empty black monochrome surface captures and holds one’s attention. A thick, horizontal, tidal-like line of paint suspended in the blackness emerges into focus and brings with it a tactile sensation of the action of painting and wet enamel paint continuing to move downwards until it starts to dry and becomes arrested in time. Looking, one becomes sensitive and attentive to reflections on, and in, the surface – of colours and shapes from other artworks in the space, flickering lights, faint lines echoing the corners of the room, moving blurs of other people in the space and the stillness of one’s body looking. This surface is not…

hida furniture festival 2017

In September last year a very special event was held in Takayama in the prefecture of Gifu, Japan and this was the Hida Furniture Festival. The Festival, now in its second iteration, was established to celebrate the traditions of timber furniture making by bringing together manufacturers from the surrounding area to showcase their products and interact with visitors. The idea was to encourage an understanding of the region and the woodworking traditions, while showcasing their modern furniture collections for a global future to retailers from around the world. From a traditional viewpoint, furniture has been made in Takayama for centuries, but 2017 was a year to celebrate the style and substance of the artisanal products through contemporary and sophisticated design. To accentuate the long history of working with timber the theme…
