Continuing a long history of speculative projects as vehicles for experimentation, I’m pleased to introduce my latest virtual concept, the Hinterland House - a captivating exploration of first design principles, embedded in the Australian landscape.
Among a selection of the studio’s existing furniture collections, the house marks the launch of several new pieces including the Leaf Collection, Totem Light, Alhambra Table, and an extension to the much-loved Booham chair – the Booham bed, easy chairs and sofa.
The virtual house interrogates the possibilities of rural living, addressing a collective desire for places of retreat and wellness. It is an explorative pursuit, testing foundational design principles away from client and budgetary constraints. As in nature, Hinterland House allows for a diversity of expressions within a unified whole. It is a home closely tethered to place, to rest and reset.
