Design Hunter™ Q&A with Khai Liew

In the March 28 issue of Habitus, Khai Liew tells us about his design favourites. Here we get a taste of what’s in the up coming issue.

The South Australian-based craftsman works mainly in timber. Here he appreciates elegant forms by fellow Australian designers in other classic materials.

“I have always loved Oliver’s work for what he takes away from his sculptural forms. You see and feel the form but you sense the negative space.”

Generation II Petal Spoons by Oliver Smith

“I admire how Marc has created this crockery to link in with his seating designs for the Qantas lounge to consolidate the brand identity. It is beauty and utility personified.”

“There’s a sense of timelessness and elegance of proportion that is inherent in so much of Charles’ work.”
