To create Stand, Norm Architects took their inspiration from those lightweight and elegant cast iron details, typical of 1920s and 1930s interiors, that stylistically characterised the Victorian era and the subsequent Art Nouveau and Art Deco decades. The bathtub reinterprets the classic tub with lion-shaped feet, while the washbasin is reminiscent of those plant pots used at the time in the luxuriant, thriving winter gardens. Stand products are manufactured by Italian company Ex-t using the innovative Living Tech® material, whose hi-tech features ensure it fits in perfectly with the elegant black metal structures that give a sense of lightness to the entire collection. Stand products are available in Melbourne, Australia from Meizai.
Melbourne based design practice Architects EAT were recently awarded Best Residential Interior at the Australian Interior Design Awards for this amazing loft conversion in a 125 year old former factory in Fitzroy, an inner city suburb of Melbourne. We love the soaring saw tooth ceiling as well as the fusion of respectfully preserved original features and the sleek new additions of steel, glass and timber, combining to create light filled open spaces as well as intimate zones on each level. The suspended foot bridge is an amazing addition connecting the mezzanine spaces. We love the soft grey kitchen and living space joinery paired beautifully with the marble finishes and the black steel framed glazing.
Fitzroy Loft is a warehouse conversion inside the 125-year-old MacRobertson chocolate factory in Fitzroy, Victoria. The project is about bringing light and air deep into the home, while maintaining the integrity and context of its historical significance. Three internal voids are devised to highlight the original factory heights. While the brief called for a sizeable family home, keeping the integrity of the original factory’s bones was vital. Walls and floors that were built in more recent years were torn down to expose charred beams and remnant paint.
The interior is a series of spaces linked by three internal voids. The first void is the courtyard, which is directly connected to the main living room and the kitchen. The second void is located as a zoning device, separating the living spaces from the private zones on the lower floor. And the third void is placed at the very back in the library, displaying the original timber column and beam, and allowing the soft southern ambient light to touch the library and the mezzanine study above.
The new FRAMED mirror designed by Norway’s Anderssen & Voll for Muuto is suitable for multiple purposes sitting beautifully in the bedroom, living areas and bathrooms. Perfect as a stand alone piece or grouped together as a mirror gallery installation, these mirrors are available in grey, rose and taupe (or silver, copper and bronze).
In the words of Anderssen & Voll : “We wanted to create a mirror that was more than merely a reflective surface. FRAMED is a new perspective to the classic framed mirror; it is a decorative design piece that leads your thoughts to installation art. It adds not only the functionality of a mirror to your home, but with its depth, organic shape and tone-in-tone colour, it is almost perceived as an art object on the wall. The FRAMED mirror can hang beautifully on your walls alone or combined with other sizes and colours.”

Fritz Hansen’s approach to colours is associated with their choice of genuine materials that patinate over time in a constant state of gradual transformation. Fritz Hansen appreciates this slow metamorphosis, which is also reflected in their iconic Series 7™ Chair’s nine new colours by the Danish artist Tal R. He has created nine artistic shades, all blends and all variable colours that change with the light, the space, the seasons and other aspects of the environment. Because a colour is not just a colour but a complex and inconstant factor. That is why Fritz Hansen prefers artistic colours to industrial colours, diversity to uniformity and the natural to the artificial. The result is a piece of furniture that will continue to live, surprise and inspire.
