Today Habitus #35, the Eccentric issue, hits stands and last night we had a little party in anticipation.
As glamorous as the glossy pages will have you believe, or as nonchalant as the weighty, uncoated stock may suggest, a lot of hard work goes into each issue we produce. So to have the ongoing support of our industry, our peers, and you – our loyal Design Hunters – means the world.
Eccentricity, seen through the Habitus lens, is a way to embrace design ingenuity, celebrate creativity and push ourselves beyond our limits. This issue we look at extravagant design that may otherwise gets cast aside as superfluous or unnecessary.
Who better to champion this idea than Don Cameron, who headlines Stephen Todd’s fresh and continuing take on our new feature section, In Habitus Veritas.
Sylvia Weimer, as Consulting Creative Director, freshened up the pages giving them a much needed “slap and tickle” to bring them up to date without departing from our core principles.
Last night we were lucky enough to sit in on a brief tete a tete between Stephen and Don as Don talked us through his new installation at Living Edge, who were kind enough to host us. Don has an inimitable approach to design and his interview in this issue is a rare glimpse into his Point Piper apartment.
The room was full of people who had their hand in this issue as well close friends in and around the industry.
It’s the beginning of a new era – an issue not to miss – so I implore you to pick up a copy before they all run out (as they did last night!)
