I have been a fan of Australian photographer Martyn Thompson for some time, and when his SOHO loft was featured on The Design Files back in 2015 my admiration for this creative genius multiplied tenfold. Then came Martyn Thompson Studio: a multidisciplinary outfit that has branched out from Thompson’s distinctive photography practice into a number of creative expressions. An aesthetic, anchored in the touch of the hand, stems from Thompson’s love of craft, and runs through his studio’s work, defined by a tactile and painterly language that is a visual push me, pull me between nostalgia and now. The studio has evolved to include textile and wallpaper design, homewares, limited edition art, as well as art direction for editorial projects. These textiles, lamps and artworks are totally blowing my mind. Sooooo stunning.
