For the May edition of the it’s design blog, we have decided to delve deeper into Chris Bosse’s Tivoli Terrace. The director of the architecture firm LAVA recently won the SMEG Tour Competition for this project, and we are so pleased that we could be a part of it!
The Paddington townhouse features a combination of classic joinery and modern manufacturing techniques allowing it to achieve a ‘21st century reinterpretation of a 1880’s terrace house’. Each room has floor to ceiling in-built cabinets which add generous amounts of hidden storage space to the property. With custom-made white laminated solid plywood kitchen and pale French oak timber floors, the use of only neutral colour tones creates a warm and serene environment.
‘Somehow when you are in here, it doesn’t feel small at all” – Chris Bosse
From handcrafted joinery solutions in the kitchen and laundry to wardrobes and bookshelf cabinets in the bedrooms and living rooms respectively, Bosse’s signature style of organic structures is present throughout his home. A combination of great architectural inspiration from Bosse with sustainable design has enabled a simplistic and modern way of creating space with the limited room of compact inner-city living.

Another year of the world renowned IMM Cologne has passed. And as always, the IMM Cologne has out done itself once again when presenting the latest global furniture and interior design trends. The innovative designs inspire the coming seasons trends as the event is a key driver and a creative centre in the global furniture market scene.
From the moment we entered, we were sent into another world filled with unparalleled inspiration in all things furniture. The sheer degree of expertise within one European city was immense and profoundly stimulating, being able to experience all the latest innovations and concepts come to light.
The trend towards re-releasing vintage and new modern classics has become a well-established one within the furniture sector. This year was no different as we saw many of the biggest brands celebrate their heritage and values in their new collections. A key influence was retro inspired classic designs with bold and brash colour clashes. It is clear that these classic designs are timeless and authentic as they are re-released with a contemporary twist.
Design: Birgit Hoffmann & Christoph Kahleyss
Design: Patrick Frey
With the top international decisions makers, the industry’s most important opinion leaders and disseminators in one place, IMM Cologne allowed us to experience all of the trends of tomorrow, today. Or rather the designs of yesteryear, in a new light.

We are so pleased to have not one but two of our projects featured in the Harper’s Bazaar Working Spaces Series.
Last year we showed you our work at MAXMEDIA LAB, this time its Sarah & Sebastian and their recently opened, first retail store.
The Working Spaces Series showcases Australian companies and individuals that are aesthetically pleasing, and add well-being and productivity in the office environment. We believe that our cabinet work at Sarah & Sebastian reflects these values of simple and ageless designs to create a pleasant and tranquil atmosphere allowing the collections to be shown in the best way possible.
