Laurence Aëgerter is a wonderfully intriguing conceptual artist. French born, Amsterdam based she engages her audience connecting the past masters to the present viewer contemporalising these iconic works – you now become the voyager of the viewer; your stance is their stance and therefore like a mirrored room you become another layer of this portal.

‘Hermitage, The Modernists’ were first realised in 2010 with after hour assistance from the Hermitage Museum in Amsterdam Laurence Aëgerter could concentrate on achieving the right dialogue between the paintings and her subjects. She had carefully scouted visitors from the museum wearing their own clothes and using the exiting lighting she at once achieves a sense of curiosity of the space obstructed whilst obtaining a perfect balance between old and new. The beauty of this project is that it came full circle and in February ‘Modernists & More’ was exhibited at the Hermitage.

If you look into Laurence Aëgerter’s art practice you will find that a thread of history is always present. Her works are well researched, intellectual and beautifully articulated. Do your self a favour and take the time to look her up.

Michael Cusack’s canvases from his latest exhibition ‘Axiom‘ are like abstract parties, forms filled with personality in intimate gatherings or independent – a tension in their distance, shy, or indifferent to one another.

Playful yet considered they have that simple balance that is so hard to achieve. Using mixed mediums he layers, scratches, scuffs and reworks until their warmth and textural qualities are harmonious. You can easily imagine how his palette of deep colours, charcoal and neutral pastels could influence an interior.

Although he now lives in Byron Bay we feel that his Irish upbringing had swayed him towards these moody earthl tones.

If you want to feast your eyes in person and draw your own conclusions be sure to visit Martin Browne Contemporary before 27th April.

Rich, honest, hardworking slabs of beauty! Nothing compares to the intricate details of history that are marble’s characteristics. Whether you’re Patricia Urquiola collaborating with Budri (Earthquake 5.9 – a whole other story!) on an elaborate exhibition or e15’s Enoki side table, marble resonates with something in the depth of our being.

It’s the way that light plays with stone that dazzles and puts it into the precious category, it’s the fault lines that are taken from this earth a huge rock in itself and then designed, crafted and delivered into your modern world that is wonderful. Classic and timeless, next time you use your benchtop or step into an ornate foyer marvel at its exquisite uniqueness.

It is, was and always will be hot property as it can lift the mundane to heavenly. We constantly look forward to visiting our marble suppliers to choose slabs for our clients, perks of the job, what a treat!

The Anglepoise lamp is a true icon of British design. Since 1932 the Anglepoise has sat on the desks of writers such as Roald Dahl, been seen on the big screen as a character in Pixar’s Toy Story, in the pages of Ian McEwan’s On Chesil Beach and dancing in a Peter Gabriel video clip for 1982′s Shock the Monkey. It is a vision of a perfectly balanced mechanism with a beautifully engaging kinetic form.

It’s a brand new aesthetic for the Original 1227 Anglepoise but it isn’t at all at odds with the sense of nostalgia of the fitting which will be available later this year in muted heritage inspired tones of Elephant Grey, Deep Slate and Dusty Blue. The woven cord and brass details recall the original release of the lamp and seen here sitting alongside pieces from British furniture houses Another Country, Bethan Gray and Ercol it isn’t hard to see the pure timelessness of the Anglepoise.
