As well as global design objects and furniture in Design
News, Habitus 09 shows the potential of humble cardboard in many forms. Also
enjoy the product shoot (featured on the front cove!), with the latest comeback
element for the home – wallpaper.
In this issue’s people stories, discover the partnership
behind NZ fashion brand Kate Sylvester, the photographic explorations of Fiona
Tan and a 1950s inspiration for furniture designer Grazia Materia. We also find
a cross-cultural link between Australia and Laos in weaving collective, Eastern
Weft, and simple architecture with impact in NZ.

Ideas for living can be found in the most unlikely of
places. A glass floor brings light into a dark Sydney terrace, the interior of
a vast former school drill hall in Melbourne is cleverly arranged into living
spaces, and a home in Thailand becomes a gallery of the resident’s experiences.
Plus enjoy our first Philippine houses, showing two interpretations of combining
old with new for contemporary living.
