Description

Join design writer Penny Craswell for the launch of her new book for Thames & Hudson ‘Design Lives Here: Interiors, Furniture and Lighting’ at Atelier Christopher Boots.

Australian design has forged its own unique trajectory, influenced by geographic isolation, a distinctive natural environment, and a modern sensibility.

Design Lives Here showcases the best of Australian residential architecture and interiors, and pays homage to the local designers and makers who have crafted bespoke pieces of furniture and lighting for these homes, whether large or small.

From a reimagined Californian bungalow with a dining table inspired by the humble HB pencil to a monumental inner-city residence furnished with more than 100 custom pieces, these houses - and the objects that reside within - offer a compelling snapshot of contemporary Australian design through the lens of materiality, utility, site and place.

This book features new homes by Australian architects and interior designers Amber Road, Andrew Burges Architects, Architects EAT, Arent and Pyke, Atelier Andy Carson, Austin Maynard Architects, Bagnoli Architects, BE Architecture, Bijl Architecture, Birrelli Art Design Architecture, Black Rabbit Architecture and Interiors, BVN Architecture, David Boyle Architects, Doherty Design Studio, FIGR, Ha Architects, Light House Architecture and Science, Smart Design Studio, Studio Prineas, Vokes and Peters, and Whispering Smith.

And furniture and lighting by Australian designers including Ruth Allen, Arthur G, Daniel Barbera, Elliot Bastianon, Christopher Boots, Darkon, Ross Didier, Rye Dunsmuir, Guy Eddington, Grant Featherston, Adam Goodrum, Jon Goulder, Trent Jansen, Jardan, Russel Koskela, Khai Liew, Pop Plus, Nick Rennie, Kate Stokes and Henry Wilson.
