Abby Seymour

We were stoked to have a chat with talented Melbourne jewellery designer Abby Seymour. We’ve been following her work for the last couple of years and we’re currently obsessing over her Australis collection which is inspired by the natural beauty of the Australian bush. Abby has seamlessly merged her signature geometry and fine detail with natural shapes and textures and the result is stunning. One of our favourite things about Abby Seymour is her commitment to environmental sustainability and ethical labour practice which we hope means we’ll continue to see her work for many years to come!

Pete Sullivan from Cox Architecture

Recently we caught up with Pete Sullivan from Cox Architecture, creators of the winning design for the $2 Billion development planned for Southbank by Beulah International. 
We asked Pete Sullivan a few quick questions to find out more about the design process and the building itself. 

Hope you like it! 

Competing with six other designs put together by collaborating teams of Australian and international architecture firms, Cox Architecture and Dutch firm UNStudio’s design Green Spine took first place. Their 350+ metre high Green Spine is an impressive cantilevered structure made up of two twisting towers with a geometric glass facade and green terracing.

Satelight

Custom. Cool. Quick. Locally Made. Usually you have to compromise and choose one or two at most. We met up with Duncan Ward from Satelight to find out how they have made it possible to have it all.
Satelight and others set themselves apart by offering quality of materials and workmanship, and offering a degree of customisation and collaboration which you simply couldn’t get from an overseas bulk supplier.

Lighting designer Ilanel invited us into his St Kilda studio to share and talk about his work, his creative process and his plans for the future.
