Clean minimal lines. Beauty in simple form and enjoyment in function. Modern and fabulous. Chris Connell and his design studio are not only interior designers and architects but symbiotically are MAP International, classic contemporary Australian furniture. His spaces are elegant and at ease but as we all know less may be more but it’s also a darn sight more difficult to achieve than more. It is all about well executed details, about making everything look effortless but always about the quality of design. I’ve included some of the design studio’s commercial work too. Those of you familiar with Melbourne’s cafe scene will know and most likely already love these dining spaces.
