Made in the spirit of ancient vessels ‘Driptopia’ from Melbourne based porcelain design studio Iggy & Lou Lou, are true to their name. Lashings of porcelain and paint are allowed to run, creating gravitational decorative surfaces.

Irene Grishin Selzer and Peter Selzer, the husband and wife team behind Iggy & Lou Lou, specialise in one off objects and jewellery. The base material of ‘Driptopia’ is made from a combination of porcelain and quartz, resulting in a luminescent blank canvas ready for their graphic touch. Strong black patterns with touches of cobalt blue and forest green adorn the vessels giving their otherwise antiquated form new life.

These minimalist pieces, never lacking in personality with their peachy pinks, canary yellows and watery turquoises are a joyful expression of the mood when good meals are shared between the people we hold dear.

The sizing is decidedly modest, hinting at the re-filling of your plate or cup again, and again, with shared dishes as meals stretch out over a sunny afternoon.

Delightful and delicious Saniyo’s ‘Gathering Series’ is for the lovers in this world.

Australian artist John Bokor’s still lifes and landscapes from his exhibition, ‘Close to Home’, speak of spiritual connection to his everyday. Lounge rooms, dining rooms, kitchens, teapots, vases and bottles of Panadol are lovingly brushed onto canvas – a snapshot of contentment with living.

Cluttered and homely, his paintings are filled with objects, all bumping into one another in a friendly manner, joyously haphazard. Confident but slightly careless brushstrokes are visually intact but dreamy, creating a fuzziness of movement like a shifting gaze.

Colours are over intensified, connecting with the viewer on an emotional level. Purples, oranges, royal blue and all the hues of pink permeate Bokor’s poetic vision of life. Celebrations of the mundane, Boker’s painting are far from ordinary.

Fritz Hansen celebrates 60 years of service by the ‘Series 7’ chairs by revisiting the original colour palette by visionary designer Arne Jacobsen. This new couple in masculine dark blue lacquer shell, with powder-coated burnished legs, and his belle in Pale pink lacquer, with 24-ct gold plated legs are strikingly handsome.

The combination of form and function have been so successful in the ‘Series 7’ that the originals number in the millions, and in a nod to its popularity it’s been reproduced in the billions across the globe. A beautiful workhorse, copied but never mastered, the craftsmanship of simplicity is never easy.

The new clothes of the his and hers are silky to the touch, the dark blue so inky and dense, while the nude pink emphasizes the curvaceous lines of a true icon. Only available for the duration of 2015 and with each chair numbered these treasures are for the discerning eye of the true collector.

The ‘Mediterranean Guest House’ by Spanish designer Serge Castella is a heady mix of rustic chic. The bare building bones are naïve, whitewashed and homogenous. The bamboo-lined ceiling creating warmth throughout. Castella’s gift is bringing a myriad of styles and eras together to create a space that is sincere and cosy.

Part-French country house, part-Hawaiian hacienda, part-Indonesian villa with touches of 1970s post modernism, this split personality guest house is light and inviting.
