Principal of Tobias Partners, Nicks’ innate style has guided the vision of many award-winning projects. He turns a practised eye to interior products for our design hunter special.
“In the context of Australia’s indoor-outdoor lifestyle, Alvar Aalto’s blonde wood trolley truly thrives. Its use of natural materials and simple, organic forms allow it to sit comfortable in any room, or out door space.”
“This Artemide lamp is an industrial design classic. I have one over my workspaces at home and at the office. They have such personality – it’s like having a friend with you as you work!”
“Long Island sofa – the name says it all, really… It’s “long” – long enough to sleep on with wonderful low line proportions. It’s an “island”, happily existing all on its own. It’s day-bed depth makes for extraordinary comfort.”
“Swiss ball – completely practical, endlessly versatile, pure geometry in a single block color: something that adds a bit of life to many spaces.”
“Bookshelf – again, this unit has lovely proportions. It’s modular and adjustable which I tend to like in general. there are no real fixings – the timber elements all slot together. it is very contemporary however a classic piece of craftsmanship.”
