20 Years on: Zuster

We are naturally drawn to celebrating new designers, and rightly so; new energy and creative talent is inspiring and exciting. It is also significant to celebrate designers' milestones and longevity, to recognise those who continue to create year after year and at the same level of quality they began.

Celebrating Design from our region and beyond

Australia has a pool of talented designers on our doorstep, plus a well-established connection to the Region surrounding us. Celebrating the links we have, we look at both sole practitioners and distributors that make up our global design community. With Melbourne Indesign around the corner, where many of these names will be exhibiting, you can even follow these up in the flesh. A win-win for Design Hunters.

Art that changes your experience of place

Site-specific art – as its name suggests – is intrinsically intertwined with place. Informed by a pre-existing landscape or built into one, art and place alter each other. We delve into the practice and talk to the artists who create it.

Site-Specific Art: Emma Coulter

Emma Coulter's site-specific work has a direct link with her background in painting and interior architecture. Blending the two lets her explore the ideas that overlap between them, de-constructing and re-constructing a space to using a refined palette to create something new.

SITE-SPECIFIC ART: Klara

Klara is a Melbourne-based street and studio artist, combining painting, illustration, paste-ups, stencil, installation and more. For Klara, the more she delves into her practise, the more site-specific it becomes. We find out why.

SITE-SPECIFIC ART: Suki

For Suki, site-specific art can work both ways; sometimes the site comes first and other times it's the idea. Here is her take on art that alters our experience of place.

SITE-SPECIFIC ART: KORBAN/FLAUBERT

This Sydney-based duo works across design and sculpture, producing furniture, sculpture, screens and installations. Often working within an architectural project, their work demonstrates the way site-specific art is becoming more integrated into the natural landscape as well as man-made structures. We hear from Stefanie Flaubert as to how these various spaces differ and what makes them so intriguing.

In Oliver’s Workshop

Oliver MacLatchy is a carpenter, builder, tinkerer and inventor with a massive love for timber. The result of that passion is Wood Melbourne, spouts made from reclaimed wood, designed and crafted by hand in his workshop in Melbourne. Each piece goes through 12 stages to become the beautiful, sustainable fixtures they are. Through a series of images we get to see some of this laborious and careful process.

A 1930s era bungalow in Hawkes Bay has retained its original Deco style, and the master bedroom's ensuite is especially in keeping, embracing geometric lines and a bold palette.

Habitus loves… Digital Design

According to the dictionary, digital means: (of signals or data) expressed as series of the digits 0 and 1, typically represented by values of a physical quantity such as voltage or magnetic polarization. Of course we have absolutely no idea what this means either, but we do know that we love the futuristic aesthetic of digital devices. By Stephen Lacey.
