The Habitus Hottest 100 – Part 1

The best of the best, the cream of the crop, the crème de la crème: in celebration of – and accordance with – Australia Day, Habitus Living is counting down the best design decisions of 2016. What’s your pick?

When we first had the idea to pull together a Habitus take on Triple J’s Hottest 100 for 2016, I must admit I was unsure we’d find a full 100 new designs. Logistics – and time – permitting, I was even less convinced we’d find 100 great quality, new designs worth the mention.

Turns out my concern was misplaced. Bar a handful of pleasant surprises and how-did-I-miss-that double takes, collating this list was like a trip down memory lane. A gathering of old friends I’d once been so excited to meet and now – irrespective of their youth – feel so nostalgic for.

Despite being spoiled for choice one hundred is a still a big number so we’ve broken it up into three digestible, bite-sized pieces – in case you missed it.

Now it’s your turn, join us in celebrating a year of great design across the Asia-Pac region.
