Architects Eat

Posted on Thu, 14 Jun 2007 by midcenturyjo

Melbourne architectural and interior design firm Architects EAT was established in 2000 and has over 20 years combined experience. Their designs take into account what they term as the “enrichment of lifestyle” and centre on strong design aesthetics and timeless experiences. They believe that architecture must be experienced intuitively firsthand. Their approach is about the physicality and haptic (sense of touch) experience of a building and it’s materials. They also maintain a strong carbon neutral ethos. Their work reflects their desire to explore the senses and design for a brighter future.

Wick Design Group

Posted on Wed, 13 Jun 2007 by midcenturyjo

Will Wick is the force behind Wick Design Group. His San Francisco design firm is influenced by Brazilian modernist styles of Oscar Neimeyer, the timeless designs of Italian Gio Ponti and the classic, bold work of Francis Elkins. A style marker for the Will’s work is the use of organic elements such as the raw almost primitive timber pieces.

Steven Miller

Steven Miller’s style is sophisticated and stylish with a sense of fun and whimsy. “We all know intuitively that life is better when we live, work, or play in a beautiful space,” says Miller. “Designers get to make that happen. It’s a privilege and a challenge—and for me, a joy.” His interiors are eclectic – traditional, modern, elegant, or OTT. AND he’s not afraid to use Ikea.

Nick’s place

I eagerly await each new month at Domino. No not the magazine but the website. I can’t find the magazine here in Australia so the monthly online update is my eagerly awaited fix. And this month’s held a pleasant surprise, more photos of Nick Olsen’s home. I know it has been featured in the magazine (and we’ve posted the first 2 pictures before) but I, along with most of our overseas readers, haven’t seen it. Nick has a great sense of style. It’s witty, classic yet eclectic with lashings of Hollywood Regency thrown in and embraces colour in all its glory. I loved it when I saw the first few pictures now the room is more complete for me.

All images from Domino

P.S. I’ve just noticed that Anna has posted her favourites from this months Domino on Absolutely Beautiful Things. If you haven’t been to her website you’re in for a treat!

I have the utmost respect for photographers. These artists can capture the essence of a room and bring it alive for us on the pages of magazines and catalogues. Gemma Comas is responsible for one of my favourite Domino photos. So I followed the trail and found Gemma’s website. Beautiful. This talented photographer stops time and makes you gasp at the beauty of the simple and the serene. These are just a few photos from her interior portfolio. Don’t miss her website for more stunning images from her portfolio.
