Quay West Hotel Lobby

Articolo's Double Ball Pendant and Double Ball Wall Sconce feature in the Quay West Hotel & Residential Tower refurbishment in Southbank. Nestled in the heart of Melbourne's arts precinct, the Quay West building refurbishment designed by CoLAB Studio draws cues from the iconic interiors of the neighbouring  Arts Centre and Hamer Hall. The interior juxtaposes purity of form and honesty of artisan craftsmanship to create a poignant design contribution to this special pocket of Melbourne's art and design soul. The Fizi collection is mesmerising with the explosion of bubbles suspended in champagne’sque effervescence. Breathtaking shadow play when Fizi is lit. Wall and ceiling jewellery for the home.  ​Photography... More

Flinders Residence

Lavishly endowed with glowing Australian timber and limestone, this home has a robust but luxe materials palette "from the earth", says Abe McCarthy of Abe McCarthy Architects. Abe collaborated with interior designer Alice Villella of AV-ID, custom builders Gstruct Group and landscaper Barber Design to establish this warm, inviting family home embedded in open pastures on the Mornington Peninsula.WHAT WAS THE CLIENT’S BRIEF?Abe McCarthy: We had worked with our client, a couple with a growing family, on two prior residential renovations. The essence of the idea of a dream home for them, a new build on the Flinders site, was conceived some years ago. Work began on an initial concept in 2013 to a brief centred on the creation of a family... More

CRAFT LAMPS FOR THE RESTAURANT

NON  is a modern restaurant of Uzbek cuisine in Kharkiv, Ukraine.  Cotton is one of the historical symbols of Uzbekistan. That’s why we used it as a part of the design for individual pendant and table lamps, which have become a strong focus of the interior.  Lamps are hand-made with individual designs.  Cotton and glass are very tactile natural materials with diametrically different properties. We placed the cotton twigs in glass bulbs and integrated light into these bulbs. The softness and lightness of cotton create a harmonic contrast with transparent, hard, and smooth glass.  Each glass bulb has a unique shape and relief. The luminaire structure is made of craft glass and brass.  The shape of glass fla... More

Annandale House

'Baldwin & Bagnall explore light and scale in the contemporary refresh of a renovated terrace in Sydney’s inner-western suburb of Annandale. Heath Baldwin & Hayden Bagnall are the names behind Baldwin & Bagnall, a Sydney-based multi-disciplinary design practice specialising in bespoke interiors. They were the ideal candidates for taking on the Annandale House; last renovated in the 1980s, lacking in access to natural light and an adequate floorplan. Approached by the client with a clear vision for a modern and comfortable interior, Baldwin & Bagnall needed to demolish the majority of the home and start from scratch. A tedious reshuffle to the home’s layout gave Baldwin & Bagnall the opportunity... More

Limitless

Ango is part of the collaborative Carnival Exhibition by Design & Object Association at River City Bangkok, presenting an individual light sculpture piece during 1-20 June 2021 in Bangkok Design Week   Limitless is an electro-light installation that proposes hope and plenty in its unboundedness, also alluding to eternity and the infinite, with no beginning or ending.   From sketchbook to light sculpture, the piece is a continuous flow of light, and the free form of Limitless is the actualisation of a dream that came to the designer and was transposed into his sketchbook the next day.    From handcrafted lighting pendants to the Limitless light installations, the piece builds on the material/light experimentatio...

Adela Apartments

The project came about with the development of a large residential block close to the Elwood foreshore and Port Philip Bay. The brief simply requested a spacious apartment product that was cutting edge and contemporary, but subtle both inside and out. The concept of a large apartment resulted in six single level dwellings, each with the proportions of a small house. The apartments are low maintenance, functionally adaptable to appeal to a range of potential residents, and highly sustainable. Externally, rather than go for a standard “stacked wedding cake” form, the building was set back significantly from the adjoining properties on the lower levels. This allowed the main volume of the building to have vertical sides and reduce... More

Portsea House

'A previously dated but solidly built 90’s style house with ‘good bones’ has been renovated with minimal structural changes but with a comprehensive interior design program. Our clients purchased a large, solidly built and well-located beach house. However, the kitchen was impractical, the large bar unnecessary and the finishes were colourful – the house had the sensibility of a 90’s office interior rather than a home near the beach. Our repeat clients trusted we would give the house a more relaxed and warm feel as well as creating practical spaces for a family that likes to cook and entertain.  As the house was quite large we had sufficient space to enlarge the kitchen and include the client’s sele...

Arch-Texture

It is not a coincidence that the word ‘Arch’ is found in both ‘Arch-itecture’ and ‘Arch-aic’.1 In recent times there has been a resurgence in the use of the ‘Arch’ in architectural forms throughout the world.  Why? Most likely as the result of a generational ebb and flow in our cultural relationship to our collective history; a youthful break with our past replaced with a mature revaluation. Modernism emerged from the conformist historicism of the Victorian era and sought to euthanise that past architectural narrative, and so few arches were visible in its rigid Euclidian geometry.  However, following the excesses of the Second World War a melancholic reappearance of a veiled neocla...

Apartment 06

Situated on the third floor of a classic Grade-II Listed building in West London, this apartment is set across what was once four separate houses. The expansive lateral layout emphasises the extraordinary sense of space.  The living areas communicate through sets of large double doors, so the space can feel private when necessary, but also has a sociable, open flow to it.  The rooms are punctuated with charismatic pockets of colour: a rich brown in the sitting room and subtle peach emerging in the dining room.  Marble and touches of burnished brass are combined with rich fabrics including bouclé, velvet and wool to enhance the sense of feminine elegance and comfort.    For this residential project an Artico...
