Oliver Gustav

OLIVER GUSTAV IS A CREATIVE CONSULTANT WITH FOCUS ON AESTHETIC DEVELOPMENT, ART, INTERIOR AND EXTERIOR DESIGN. HIS APPROACH TO INTERIORS IS ARTISANAL AND HOLISTIC. HE CREATES SPACES WHICH CONVEY A QUIET AND YET DRAMATIC ATMOSPHERE, WHERE THE STARK AND MODERN IS CONTRASTED AGAINST RARE ANTIQUE FINDS AND EXQUISITE CURIOSITIES. EACH PROJECT IS DEVELOPED WITH INTRINSIC RESPECT FOR FRAMES AND CHARACTER.

FROM HIS STUDIO, SHOWROOM AND BOUTIQUE IN CENTRAL COPENHAGEN, OLIVER GUSTAV OFFERS UNIQUE AND LIMITED EDITION PIECES, FROM A CAREFULLY CURATED EDIT OF INTERNATIONAL DESIGNERS AND ARTISTS. SET ON A MONOCHROME BACKDROP, MIXED WITH STRONG AND MODERN CULTURAL INFLUENCES, OLIVER GUSTAV’S PEACEFUL AND SPELLBINDING INTERIORS MAKE STRIKING USE OF LIGHT AND SHADOW – UNDERSCORING HIS ATTENTION TO SURFACES AND SCALE. WITH THIS SERENE AMBIENCE, OLIVER GUSTAV’S SPACES OFFER A TRULY SELDOM EXPERIENCE ROOTED IN A TIMELESS AND BEAUTIFULLY HONEST SIMPLICITY.

Timeless and beautifully honest simplicity indeed. This is all you need to create perfectly curated spaces.

Castor - lighting

Castor Design (castor is beaver in French) is a Toronto-based practice run by Brian Richer (a trained architectural stone carver with a degree in English literature and philosophy) and Kei Ng (a trained architect with a background in set design). They are interested in the middle ground between art and design, bringing a sense of irreverence to each project. Materials and their reuse make up an important part of Castor's aesthetic; burnt out bulbs to make lighting, a rusty shipping container to make a sauna. I have been a fan of their lighting for a long time and thought it about time I do a little feature. Here are my favourites:

Anita - Equinox

I saw this beautiful ceramic garland installation at souk @ sat in Montréal and was mezmerized. By Anne Cahsens of Anita, Equinoxe is garland made of handmade ceramic spheres, linen cord, brace spacers and brass and copper bells. Kicking myself for not having bought one.

Amulette by Annie Legault

A few weekends ago the husband and I took a little day trip to Montreal to check out a show I had never been to before: souk @ sat, featuring creations from Montreal's most creative contemporary artisans. I thought I would feature a few of my favourites. One of them being Annie Legault's handcrafted woven light fixtures...they were absolutely stunning in person. I was SO BUMMED I don't really have the perfect spot for one (being the lighting whore that I am). She also has the most beautiful and soft round rugs (which can never exist in my house full of cats), large knit blankets and plant holders. OMG all of it is gorgeous.
