editor’s letter

When I was first given the honour of editing one of Australia’s best-loved design magazines, I have to admit I felt both privileged and just a little overwhelmed.

“This sculpture is made from construction debris — specifically, roofing insulation and pieces of architectural woodwork from a demolished middle school in Miami. I have always considered my use of reclaimed materials diverted from landfills to be an important element of my work as a commentary on our throwaway culture”— DANIEL SCHNEIGER“Flotsam consists of over half a million fragments of ocean microplastic sourced from the sea. They float to the surface of the bench, much the same way as when travelling across the ocean”— BRODIE NEILL“The Innate Credenza is made from locally sourced timber, meaning the logs have been sustainably grown, cut and milled from the same site over and over again. It is also a collectible piece that will last for generations. This in itself contributes to a sustainable…
